Happy Face

Oh soul, you worry too much. You have seen your own strength. You have seen your own beauty. You have seen your golden wings. Of anything less, why do you worry? You are in truth the soul, of the soul, of the soul.
— Rumi

Oh blessed beings, after so much heart ache and suffering, stress and anxiety, today, I finally feel relieved.  I feel truly happy and content, with just the little things, such as being treated to, what could only be described as, the best vegan chocolate chip cookie I have ever tasted, bought straight from the heaven that is Veganz (Schivelbeiner Straße 34, Prenzlauer Berg).  It was a breakfast of champions this morning, that is for sure and it started my day off on the right foot!

After a relaxed day, soaking in the last of the sunshine (apparently it's due to be overcast all week now), I am off to a reading at Acud Macht Neu (Veteranenstraße 21) this evening with my lovely new friend Rose, which I'm excited about, mostly because I was starting to worry that I was slowly but surely becoming an anti-social hermit, with all the work I was doing.  There really is no point in living in a place like Berlin, if you never embrace what it has to offer and I for one, am forcing myself to fully soak in every single scrap of it, whilst I have the opportunity.

The continuation of my positive vibes, have also been aided by the kind gifting of two tickets to both the cinema and a boat trip around the city, along with a pass for the U-Bahn for the week.  So now I have absolutely no excuse not to get out of the apartment this week.  I guess it's simply time to brush off my social cobwebs, dry my tears, mend my fractured heart and get back out there, into the real world.  Let's face it, worrying never did anyone any good and it certainly doesn't solve anything.  Sometimes, you've just got to pop your concerns in a box and get on with getting on.

What are your plans for the week?  I'd love to know what you're getting up to.
