Let’s start Monday with an overload of pictures of a very beautiful café in Kreuzberg, Berlin.
It was sunny when I woke up, so I told Johan we HAD to cross the bridge over to Kreuzberg to see more of the beautiful sunshine. Our Monday morning meeting routine had a new goal – Salumeria Lamuri where we hadn’t been for a few years. About time!
This place opened up in 2013 and every detail is so well taken care of. I have to say this is one of the most beautiful places Berlin has to offer.
They offer a great selection of things to eat and drink.
We only had coffee this time, I have to go back for lunch eventually, never disappoints.
Hey, Johan! Just woke up.
You see, every detail is beautiful.
The place overlooks a row of very beautiful and detailed buildings as well, it’s like a painting to look at.
Original paintings on the walls and in the ceiling.
Do you see us? Ketchup and mustard.
That Carmex… It’s not beautiful but it’s always with me. Completely addicted.
Time to go back home and dig into this weeks work. It works very well for us to go out on Monday morning to give the week better structure. I gotta find new and fun projects to work on, get in touch if you have suggestions!
So long, Salumeria Lamuri. I can’t wait to come back soon. It’s just a quick walk over the bridges, and I’m there.
And a quickie about life. Before I went to Sweden for the holidays, I was about to go crazy with myself and the life I was living – never really resting and surrounding myself with a lot of people. I’ve always been kind of an introverted lone-wolf who needs a lot of time to recharge and at the same time I have learned very well how to act like an extrovert, being good at small talk etc. People around me told me I need to see more people since I work mostly by myself, so almost every night I was out doing things and I was truly exhausted. I didn’t listen to my own needs in the end, because I thought it was wrong to want to be on my own for longer periods. Since I came back from Sweden, I have been reading 5 books, sitting down on my sofa trying to rest my mind not thinking about anything for several minutes (I know, it might sound ridiculous, but my brain was moving forward all the time and I didn’t give myself time to contemplate and rest, so several minutes of resting my mind IS a long time). Now I feel so much better, my brain has started thinking much more creative again. Does anyone recognize themselves in what I’m telling here? What I have realized, which has made a huge difference to me, is that there’s no point in trying to explain oneself’s introversion to an extrovert because it’s impossible for them to grasp what it’s like. There’s nothing wrong about it, we’re all different, but for me to stop trying to explain myself has helped a lot. To accept who I am and what I need. I wish this would have happened earlier in my life, but to be positive about it – I’m happy it happened now and not when I’m 60.
Cheers to our differencies!
