Feel Good Friday: Be Careful What You Wish For!
In the age of Photoshop it can be hard to tell if the pictures that we see on social media are the real thing. Trying to decipher what is real and what is fake can be a challenge, but even more of a challenge may be altering your pictures to make them look more interesting or luxurious than they are. Luckily if you don’t have the skills to touch up your photos you can head to the internet for support by putting out a simple ask into the world wide web. Although what starts as a kind gesture may soon turn into a lot of laughs and a little lesson in the importance of clear communication.
One such Photoshop do gooder is James Fridman who has a knack for helping people alter their photos in the most direct and hilarious way possible. I like his account because it shows that there are people in the world that are willing to help if you just ask. It also is a good reminder to be very clear with your communication and be direct with what you want in life. When communication breaks down there is no telling what can happen!
The idea of Feel Good Fridays started because we believe the simple things that bring a smile to our face, are some of the best things. Smiling and laughing has been proven to reduce stress in our lives! When we smile or laugh it releases neurotransmitters in our brain called endorphins, which are in charge of making us happy and helping to relieve stress.
