Dear reader,
This blog is meant to nourish, comfort and inspire you with pictures, links, stories, humour, and a whole lot more.
Feel free to e-mail me for a private talk about whatever appeals to you.
If you want to know for what reason I started this blog, and how I turned my anxiety into energy, read my first blog about it
(last link under july 2013 on the right). To infinity and...... beyond! D)

About giving and receiving

According to the Jung-test*) I'm an ENFJ-type (Extravert, iNtuitive, Feeling, Judging), commonly described as "givers". I recognise that a lot. When I meet someone, he is telling me his lifestory within minutes. I let people in easily (and can be quite overwhelmed by it). I like to give a lot.
And it often strikes me that it doesn't work the other way round: people giving back something to me. Maybe I'm not a good receiver;).
Anyway, I visit an forum for ENFJ's quite a lot (surrounded by other 'givers')  and posted one of my paintings here (you can find this and other paintings in my blog of july under the title 'mood paintings'') and received this reaction: "an artist...+points". This small reaction made me so happy today :).
I thanked him for that and then it got even better:
