A Reason to Smile Today.


Last night a rainbow beamed across the night sky, just as I was sipping a coffee with almond milk from Café Gratitude in Los Angeles. It was absolutely stunning. It’s colors were brighter than a kid’s smile on Christmas morning, and more beautiful than quite possibly any other thing in nature I’ve seen before. One older lady next to me said, “I’ve never seen one of these!” I felt so special to have witnessed something so magical. It reminded me that we are all connected, that nature is beautiful, epic, and mysterious, and we must have a deep respect for every single part of it.

I love it when something like this happens to make you realise - in a good way - how humans are just a tiny (insignificant in comparison) part of the world.

Right now I'm smiling because my pooch is snoring away contented after a long walk :-)
