From now on, I’m going to post once a week (I’ve got WordPress added to my action list!). About my life, because that’s how this blog started: as a diary. By going back to the basics, I’m hoping to learn more about myself – and the world I live in.
Be careful what you wish for, lest it comes true!

Last week I visited a museum with my middle sister. There was an exposition from Dalí, which I looked forward to, and of Eva Jospin’s work, which I knew nothing of.
Me and my sister concluded that Dalí must have had a very… dark childhood.
There were none of his famous paintings, but tons of his early drawings. You could tell it was Dalí’s, but honestly… I didn’t get them.
Hopelessly staring at drawings that didn’t tell me a story, I started to feel I am simply too stupid for art.
But then we turned a corner and there it was!
Eva Jospin’s Paper Tales:
As you probably know from a previous post of mine (About Manifesting And More), I am interested in and experimenting with the Law of Attraction and something that is called manifesting: ask the Universe for something, and it will provide (in a nutshell).
To help me build my trust in the Universe, I’ve bought a book by Pam Grout: E2 (or E-Squared).
It provides 9 easy-to-perform experiments that are supposed to prove to me that manifesting is real.
Experiment 1 was to ask for a blessing.
Anyone who knows me longer than today, knows I am very critical.
I mean, when I ask for proof, I ask for PROOF.
I gave the Universe 48 hours to send me a blessing, then was hesitant to count my luck.
Within 48 hours I received:
- A panda book (I’m crazy about pandas, remember?)
- A new vacuum at work, one that actually makes my job easier!
- A compliment on my new glasses
- A long lost and already forgotten pen I found
But I finally relented and accepted all as a blessing, when my cousins came over for a visit and brought…
There was no denying the blessing there!
In addition to Pam’s ready-to-use experiments, I’ve been conducting my own by asking the Universe for different things.
One thing I asked for to happen this month, was to receive an invite to something.
Today, my middle sister asked me along on a high tea.
Only after my eldest sister did the same thing a few days ago.
So you see: it’s all about high teas for me right now.
And high time, too.
That I learn to trust the Universe more. And myself.
Because after almost 34 years of believing I was the black sheep of the family, the one nobody took seriously, I now have a feeling I might actually be the opposite.
I am the one person people confide in, run to and…
Take out to high teas 😉
And that was my week.
How was yours?
