Turn your life around with the New Year 2015!

It’s a choice… you can wake up happy or wake up mad and sad.  When you decide you want to be happy each day with control of your thoughts you CAN DO THIS!

You can grow, become a humanitarian and you can make the world a better place!  

Connecting The Dots in the Cosmic Cow Pie™ of life can be intensified by asking 3 questions a day™ and recording your answers with your behavior modification!

Ask yourself daily and change your behavior to be able to answer the 3 questions a day™.  Make it fun.  Have your friends or kids do it with you and share the joy of helping others and growing together.

1. Who was I nice to today?

2. What did I learn today?

3.  How was I better today than yesterday?

 3 Questions A Day™  is something to ask yourself as a reminder to continually think about growing as a member of humanity.  

1.  Who were you nice to today? 

How are you letting your light shine and making someone feel special?  People remember how you made them feel not what you said.  
Can you open the door or give a seat to someone in need.   Can you help someone in the post office who may not have enough money to send a package.  Can you listen to the people around you and hear what they are saying and offer to help in some way?  Do you know someone having a hard time and can you call them up and take them lunch or some cookies or a fruit basket?  Could you empty the dishwasher for a family member… anything that is kind of considerate… try to do something nice each day.  When people see you doing it.. they will want to do it so the ultimate pay it forward by just being nice!  You can change the world with your humanitarian actions.
2.  What did I learn today? 
This will keep you in a mode of expectation to continue learning.  It is hard to participate on the Internet and not learn something every single day… so just look it as fun and part of your continually growth.  Look at learning as your “happy place” a place of peace and joy a it is constant with adapting to the changes that are continually taking place today… then share what you learned with others in a cliff note format and again you are paying it forward in a wonderful and easy way!
3.  How am I better today than yesterday.
This will be an internal question that only you can answer and does not need to be shared with anyone but yourself.  This is the accountability that makes you become a better person by simply keeping track of your own actions and individual growth.  At check out time you will know that you did the best you could and were always trying to do better.
If you are looking for real peace or balance in your life it all starts with giving and growing… When you are thinking about others and giving of yourself you have something to be grateful for every single day and this keeps you on track for receiving the good that you give!  You will be showing the world the way to be kind and make a difference. You will be connecting the dots in the Cosmic Cow Pie™ of life.
What is your purpose and reason for being… if that question is something that you can’t answer, just start by giving, the message will unfold and become clear to you as you give.
Become a humanitarian by sharing your photos!  Learn how! 
Make the New Year 2015 a giving year and expect that that giving will make you happy because you are making the world a better place by the things you are doing!
We manifest what we believe…. what do you believe?

Wishing you 2015 Peace Monkey

Pictures can speak a thousand words.  The photo concept is perfect for a blog post and one of the reasons why Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest are so popular today!

What does this graphic say to you?

Digital Images create a story in the viewers mind.  

“A photo can open the door to engagement™” and is key to your social media marketing success. 

I posted this photo on facebook and asked what people thought without having a caption.  The overwhelming majority thought about someone leaving their jewelry on the counter to go to the beach, take a bubble bath or travel to the Caribbean or Hawaii.

The title changed the story line and how the viewer perceived the message.

Do you have a message you want to share but need some help with connecting your social media marketing and digital image dots?

Don’t have time to take photos or think up creative concepts to share in your social media marketing?
