Friends and family (well, mostly family) would ask me, why I spend (too much) time on IG or FB (even Blogger) when I have a million and one things to do (with dissertation writing on the top of that list). My answer to this apart from having a breather from the rigors of academic obligations and revisiting the side of me that screams out literature and humanities (my undergraduate degree), I like receiving and giving appreciation. I love seeing how people are able to express themselves creatively. It is human nature. I enjoy seeing the wondrous and beautiful reflective of a person's hardwork, patience, cleverness, creativity, and attention to detail. From art production to art appreciation and artful thinking whether visual, musical, kinesthetic, or multi-modal, I just get sooooo inspired. Even my best friend Joy, when she would post her food adventures and travels (sometimes with even famous chefs inset), I see that there is true satisfaction in her as she is doing what she loves to do (does blogging for Dep Ed count? Haha).
So, a big thanks is extended to everyone who are generous with praise, who only have good words for others, and who choose to give and receive that which is positive and good.
A blessed Sunday everyone!
The adage "praise in public, criticize in private" will always stand true in my books.
A big thanks again to Tami Ortega. Please follow her (mydailyconfetti) on facebook for snippets of happiness to be upon you. 😊😍😊
