Praising Life ProjectWelcome to the Praising Life Project
It's really hard for anyone to stay positive all the time. I definitely agree with that.
However, when things go wrong, it's so easy to forget how much you've been blessed. It's amazing that we have the internet, people who care, and hope...
Although there is a lot of bad in this world, there is also beautiful joy and countless things to appreciate.
And that makes me praise life.
The memories, the laughter, the joy, the hugs through hard times.
In this life, we only have one chance! I think one of our life purposes is to spread love throughout this world and leave it in better shape than before we were here.
It would be much appreciated if you help spread the word! ( & Comment!)

PE: Giving and Receiving Quality Feedback
Giving and Receiving Feedback
One of the most useful things on deviantart is the option to give and receive feedback. There are different kinds of feedback. This article aims to inform you on how to give quality feedback and hopefully receive it.
Types of Feedback
One of the quickest ways to interact with others. From journals, to forums, to art, to profiles, comments are used everywhere. However, the quality can range from spam, to constructive.
Any deviant can write them,(~,*,=,`,^ etc.) but only premium members can request them. Constructive comments can substitute for these. Critiques take some time to write, and really provide insight. If used correctly, can be a wonderful way to give/receive constructive criticism.
This is important to receiving feedback. If you give, you are l

Hall Of Fame ( 29 - September 2012 ) Before talking about the features, I want to present something briefly. For those who still care and who would like to make a change in someone’s life, you are free to share your ideas concerning our project called The "Think About It" Project. Your opinion counts! And no, we are NOT expecting donations of any kind etc. , because this project isn’t based on any financial principle. Details can be found on the official updated website: www.thethinkaboutitproject.com.
Those who have been members of our Group for quite a while are aware of the fact that many of the Group's Submissions end up in my, Alligatorr's, gppr’s, Mathness', Rockinfroggi's and pbird12's Favourites, being featured wherever it is possible to do that and being suggested as DDs. So, keep submitting, people, because there are only advantages in it for you.
The Photography Galleries: Why and How to SuggestSo many of my watchers and other members of the community suggest fantastic pieces for Daily Deviations every week. But I need more. I need to be more specific about my rules now too, so that you understand what I do and do not look for. But above all that, it's time to get You more exposure. Think you have an awesome photograph in your gallery? Why not consider self suggesting right now. I actively encourage it. If you send me your own work I will greet you with pompoms and latex free balloons. Srsly. Read on for more info:
The Community Relations Team is your first stop when sending a Daily Deviation. The full team is listed there and it's pretty self explanatory of whom you should select to send your note to. If the deviation you are suggesting is in, for example, Animals, Plants and Nature - then there isone designated Community Volunteer that

Subs Giveaway! Now you can change your username.:icontransparentplz:
Hello to all!
I'm seeing great commotion around the last news, the ability to change our username.
I'm staying Egil21 and have no intent to change it, but I do understand that many people don't think much about it when they join and the fact is, after some years on dA, growing, maturing, improving their art, that name doesn't make sense any more, specially when you are called ~NarutoLoverForever and trying to sell street photography (this is just an example, it's not real, though I checked and there is an account with this name ).
As this ability is only available to Premium Members, I'm going to give 10 Premium Memberships (1month subs) to dA members who are not subscribed. Of course, I'm only giving to the ones who are my watchers or TheFavouriteShowcase's members/watchers.
Also, as I'm reaching the 100.000 Pageviews, I'll give 1 month sub or the correspondent points to the deviants who catch the 99.99

Features No 90-I've missed you... In our life time,we meet alot of people..
Some of them prove to be honest,faithful,devoted..
Some of them prove to be fakes..
What should we do?Cry and hurt for those who are fakes,
or be thankful and happy for those who are true?
I think I'll take the second choice..
I want to thank you all,my beloved DA friends,
for being with me while I was away,
for not letting me feel alone even for one moment..
Your friendship and love made me see things so differently..
Thank you,you beautiful,loving people..
A wonderful gift from my dearest :iconguihena: gave me so much happiness...
Thank you from heart,my wonderful Guille!
