It seems like everyone is always on the move in LA. If you’ve ever tried to sit and actually get work done in a Starbucks it’s nearly impossible (although this may just be a personal problem). People are always popping in and out of coffee shops and it can be a little distracting.
A friend told me about this hip little outdoor coffee shop in Silverlake called Cafecito Organico. I checked it out for myself in my ridiculously chunky and comfy sweater and not only is this place absolutely adorable, but it is the most chill LA coffee shop I have ever been to. You could sit there for hours and not get distracted at all. I should also mention their cappuccinos are seriously delicious and (not that it really matters to me) but they have gluten-free and vegan goodies as well!
I spent my time at the cafe reading and jotting down positive thoughts and quotes in my notebook. This is something I do often just to give myself a little positive reminder or inspiration. One of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain is, “kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” I think we often get caught up in our own little worlds and forget how easy it is to be kind to people. Seriously, even an oz. of kindness can go long way!
You can always start small, for example, by simply buying a book! For every purchase you make from www.betterworldbooks.com a book gets donated through Feed the Children and Books for Africa. Over 20 million books have been donated so far and with your help, that number will only continue growing! If you were going to buy the book anyway, why not help someone out at the same time? Yes, spreading kindness can be this easy and will always put a smile on your face!
