It would be great to meet other people going through the same process as I am

I also find it quite a challenge how to manage and plan it all beside my other tasks and appointments. But I am sure that, as I go, a productive and functional way will show itself eventually.

  1. I’m not sure how I feel about my post being randomly shared here. But you did pull it quite out of context. Because the people I am looking for to meet, has to do with setting up a business, not with how to manage my daily life.


    1. Hi Sonja 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by! 😀

      I am sorry that you seem to be upset. When I share information, I want everyone to be better off as a result of it. I quoted your post not only because I liked the post, but also so that you might achieve the kinds of connections you talk about in your post — whether that is business, or personal or daily life or whatever.

      I can’t remember if I tried to contact you before — I think perhaps I did, but I am not 100% sure.

      I am wondering what might be the cause of the misunderstanding. Maybe it’s a language issue? A culture issue? Some combination, perhaps including some other issues, too?

      In any case, I hope we can figure out some way to turn it into a good thing, like maybe expanding our consciousness or something like that.

      Please feel free to reply as much as you like here, and / or via my contact form (basically email). Please note, however, that I myself am rather reluctant to reply to Gmail addresses, because I do not trust that company at all.

      🙂 Norbert


      1. Hello Norbert,
        No, I’m afraid you have never contacted me on the matter, so hence the confusion. Or if you did, it never reached me in any form.
        Without being informed up front, it was very confusing.
        I thank you for liking my post and the honour, but I rather you take it down. Despite all your good intentions, I just don’t feel comfortable with it. I thank you kindly in advance.


      2. Sonja, we are both using the Internet. I am simply quoting something *YOU* published online. If you no longer want that to appear, you (of course) are free to remove it from your own website … but I am not going to change anything myself.


      3. No, IDK what you mean. If someone were to show up and say they don’t like something about your website, or your crafts or anything you do, then would you immediately say “oh, gosh, I’m sorry — I will simply change it because you don’t like it”? I respect myself, my own feelings, my own judgement, etc. more than that. And I feel what you wrote was good, and I want to share that with other people. Maybe you have moved on, and you no longer feel it is good anymore. That is perfectly OK. Change is a natural part of life, but that doesn’t mean we should rewrite history everytime something from the past makes us feel uncomfortable. At least IMHO.

        I really care about what you think, even if you feel like I don’t. Let’s not disconnect with any bad feelings, OK?


      4. That is a completely different matter ; someone randomly dropping by saying that they don’t like what you make / do, or what happened here.
        If I were to repost something from someone else, I’d ask their consent first and foremost. And if I were to accidentally share something from someone (that I didn’t or couldn’t get consent for) and then they’d ask me kindly to delete it, I would do so immediately. No questions asked. Because despite something being publicly available, it is still that person’s personal property. Or at least it should be, in my opinion 🙂

        Agreed, lets part ways civilly. Thanks again for appreciating my post. Have a nice day 🙂

      5. I guess we simply feel differently about what publication / publishing something on the open web means.

        Personally, I feel the expression to “part ways” is too *unsatisfactory* (or something like that) for me — but I will agree that there is only a limited amount of life left to live, and you probably still have a lot of socks to make! 😛

        I hope we were / are able to find agreement … even if only to “agree to disagree”. Happy trails! (until we meet again 😉 ) #MaybeTomorrowMaybeSomeday (both of those are musical references)
