Hello. I’m flattered that you’ve made your way to this page—or maybe you stumbled here by accident—in either case, hi there!
Let me introduce myself: I’m Isabella Pen. I’m
29 30-something, and I live and work in Washington, D.C.
For most of my 20s, I was a sometimes runner, sometimes writer, sometimes vegan, sometimes yogi, sometimes pianist, sometimes hiker, sometimes adventurous, always workaholic who figured there had to be more to this thing called life. But for the very same reason that I only sometimes did the things that I liked best, I didn’t expend much energy trying to get more out of life. Now, as I round the corner into my 30s, I realize that the only thing stopping me from doing things I like and living the life I want is ME. Well, that ends right now.
I started Happier as a way to keep me accountable as I work toward the life I want, hopefully getting happier and healthier along the way. It’s a personal journey, and I don’t pretend to be an expert on anything but myself, but if you want to tag along for the ride, it should be interesting!
