It's a hard feeling to express. I don't know, you just become more aware and see more good in a lot of things. When you appreciate, you feel happy too because this stuff makes you happy, you like this stuff, you're glad this stuff exists, this stuff makes this 2 minutes or something of life more enjoyable. And for me, when I appreciate, I notice more details too, when I appreciate people's deeds, I find that people /do/ care about me and they go out of their way to do this thing for me, so I must matter. This helps a lot, especially when I feel low.
When I appreciate art... This is hard to explain. I just, as a person who draws and stuff, I feel like appreciating art (writing, music, films, games, and more, art is a pretty broad thing!) is my part in supporting people like me. Sometimes, I feel low about my art and stuff, there's always going to be someone who reblogs or likes my art or even just goes 'wow!' and it makes me feel less... unskilled. I like to think that if someone can do that for me, it wouldn't be too much out of my way to do that for someone else who might need it. Also, appreciating art just makes you notice the 'nice' bits of your surroundings and helps you realise that, wow, someone did this on purpose (whether it's in a movie or videogame or whatever else), someone specifically did this, I wonder if anyone's noticed.
Yeah I'm not very good at articulating. But point is, appreciation, when it's directed to you or when you give it, is a good thing for all parties involved. It makes you happier, it makes other people happier.
At least, that's what I think, based on my experiences.
I realise why my friends think I'm an 'optimist' now... Haha.

He was talking about running a dictatorship... but I think you can apply it to other things in life, too.
