The Nature of the Beast
What shall I blog on today? Hmmmmmmmm decisions!
I had the opportunity to see human nature without the shine on Friday evening. I was fortunate to win a prize for my Cup A Cino recipe (see Cooking Toldyah’s tab above). I made up the recipe over a decade ago for my late mum. It was a big surprise to me and announced via Facebook so my first inkling was when I saw the Facebook entry. I scrolled through the mostly lovely congratulatory messages to reply my thanks and was hit hard by some nasty comments – OMG. Why?
It reminded me when I have seen cool, harmless videos on Youtube – people click dislike on these videos – why? Are these people fundamentally flawed to display meanness or is it just that the sunshine just hasn’t burst into their lives enough to allow them to celebrate the good things it offers?
Celebrating is good for the soul, so give it a go people. Feel the glow from being pleased for someone else! Just maybe the karma will come back to you hey!
It’s the nature of the human beast to be many things – that is what makes us interesting, varied, and innovative. Sadly, non-constructive negativity is one of those attributes. It reminded me that I must ensure the rules of Toldyah protect the generous contributors from the haters. It’s easy to criticise, much harder to create. It’s the creative I want to encourage! Time to reinforce the plan to protect the innocent!
Have a great day!
