I had a perfect start to the new year. Went to the Berliner Neujahrslauf, ate red lentil soup with one of my best friends, enjoyed the comfort of my home.

I was thinking about the last year and what’s ahead. What my plans are.

I don’t do new year’s resolutions, as I believe you can change your path whenever you set your mind to it. Yet there are certain areas of my everydays that I plan to adjust. Step by step, and with the goal before me.

I realised it once again today how lucky I am. I have everything one needs, and all the opportunities are at arms length. I also have the experience to know Time is the biggest treasure. So I’ll do my best not to waste my time.

I have a forever calendar with daily quotes and mandalas next to my table. Today, there’s a Chinese saying below the mandala: “Even a journey of thousand miles starts with a tiny step.” – This pretty much sums it up, what I think about changes. Living in Berlin not only confirms this, but provides great opportunities to spread my wings too.

The journey continues tomorrow.

City jungle

One of the things I like most about Berlin is the endless parks all around the city. You don’t ever have to go far to find a green area and people use them too.

Today, my dog got to swim in one of the lakes in Görlitzer Park.

It’s amazing how many things you get to do in Berlin. This city is what you want it to be.
