shiny happy people

shayna, canon digital rebel xt

I am in love with people that can live with joy so abundantly. Shayna is one of those people.

My yummy friend Schmoops sent me this link yesterday. If any of you live in or near San Francisco or Berkeley, I think you'd definitely find some joy at Cafe Gratitude.

I've watched this cool video of the owners of this cafe over and over. Their philosophy rocks my world. How I wish all cafes and restaurants were like this. I even emailed the owners asking them to build one where I live! I would totally work there part time.

I love how they say "we are the creators of our experience". So true.

Shiny happy people are the best.

I've been intending to try it out for at least a year now, and your post reminds me to get it done! ;o)

FYI--Manzanita restuarant in Oakland is also really delicious!

...and the food truly rocks. Seriously, I am bountiful was the best pesto I have ever eaten, and it's made with hempseed.

I can absolutely picture you working there; you would be a natural. I think they have one of their job applications on the site, they hire based on your personal philosophies. They would hire you in a heartbeat, you would make their cafe shine even more brightly if possible.

I hope they open one in your area. Heck, I hope they open one in my area!
