Recovery and Revival! (And strawberry cream toast! Haha!)
So, this picture really has nothing to do with what I'm going to talk about in this post.
The picture really doesn't do it justice
But I just couldn't resist posting it! Doesn't it look so delicious? Scrumptious? Absolutely mouthwateringly undeniably euphoric?
It was all of the above ;)
Sometimes, when you're feeling down and blue, eating something delicious can really perk you up. After all, they do say that what doesn't feed the body feeds the soul! We all deserve a treat once in a while! (Even though my singing teacher has me on a strict diet right now... ;_; The things we do for our dreams...)
There is a phrase in Korea that literally translates to, "It's a rice cake in a picture". It is used when describing something that looks so good, and that you want so badly, and is right in front of your face...that you can't have.
Okay, moving on! Hahaha!!!
I've been in a fantastically good mood today. You see, yesterday, I was able to find some clearance in an issue involving a person who is very dear and precious to me. It was a difficult matter that has plagued us for many years, and will probably never disappear completely. However, through yesterday's explosive battle, we were able to work out a lot of misunderstandings.
What this whole event really taught me was how important it is to ask before jumping to any kind of conclusion. None of us in this world (probably) are psychics, and we really have no idea what is going on in another person's mind. The only way to truly find out is to ask. Don't guess. Don't assume. Because while you sometimes may be right, the chances of you being wrong and hugely offending the person you are passing judgement on is just too large for reliance. In any relationship, communication is key.
To conclude, I leave you with this question: Is criticism always good? Is it always necessary? If someone is already aware of their faults, is reminding them of their shortcomings really an act of love?
What do you think? I'm really curious to know.
Have a great night! ^_^
