Positive Judgement vs Positive Appreciation

I just had a thought:

Is there a difference between:
- “Judgement – judging that this is good” and between
- “Appreciation – appreciating that this is good”?

Here are my thoughts:

Judgement comes from a thinking place that’s often based on beliefs we’ve accumulated throughout life; beleifs that tell us one thing is “right” and one thing is “wrong”. It’s an intellectual thing. These beliefs that may not always be in line with what our inner being knows to be true.

Appreciation comes from a feeling place that’s often based on lining up with your inner being’s joy. Appreciation is more purely feel-good. There is no right or wrong here; it’s just pure focus on how good something feels to you personally.
