It makes me so happy and warm to work with Viva. She moves with an ease that is so pleasant to be around. Look at my face, I’m glowing. And Viva is so willing and eager to play and work, yet so careful and observant on my signals. As you can see she’s got some trouble with finding balance and comfort in her body sometimes, like when she stops she want to correct her position. That’s what her injury does but it doesn’t matter, and I think it will get better with more muscles. Or I know it gets better. Anyhow she’s just adorable!💗

I was talking to a friend today about how we all have a hard time listening to and taking in criticism.
I told her about the times I was forced to stop and think about my actions and how it was often because someone I knew told me “hey, you effed up and here’s how.”
No, it’s not easy to hear the many ways that we messed something up. It hurts our ego, deep, doesn’t it?
But without opportunities like these, we simply cannot grow or progress in this life. So I decided to embrace them.
Not only that, but it’s one of the few ways I know for sure that someone REALLY cares about me and my happiness.
You see, it takes guts, it takes admiration, it takes genuine love for someone to be able to help them realize their flaws.
If you’re a parent, this is quite obvious. We love our children, we don’t want to see them hurt and we want them to grow up to be decent adults, so we are constantly trying to guide them.In everything they do:
“Go to bed early so you won’t be tired tomorrow. Eat healthy so your body will be strong. Be kind to others so they’ll be kind to you. Learn to say no now so it’ll be easier in the future. Be responsible. Be on time. Clean after yourself.”
I could go on and on...
But can you imagine how children would turn out if there was NO guidance, ever? And why does that have to stop when we “grow up”?
It shouldn’t have to!
We’re still learning, evolving, progressing. There’s no growth without constant evaluation, and often times that has to be brought to us from external sources.
So all this to say, let’s embrace constructive criticism! Let’s appreciate and thank the people who love us enough to help us become better! I know I do, and hope you know who you are!
Un nipote lo ami,lo coccoli, se ti è permesso lo vizi anche.Un nipote lo correggi senza eccedere,lo consoli se corre da te,lo guardi crescere senza sapere sino a quando ti sarà concesso tale dono. Proprio per questo vuoi dargli tutto,vuoi dargli il meglio,vuoi donargli il mondo anche se del mondo tra le mani non hai nulla. #sempreconte#myheart ❤️
