Powerful Beyond Measure

September 18, 2010 Leave a comment

As we realize it’s ok to let our own light shine, we subconciously give other people the power to do the same.  (paraphrased)

A simply beautiful statement.  We are truly uniquely powerful beings.

Quotes on Discovering God

September 16, 2010 Leave a comment

“Until a man has found God, he begins at no beginning and works till no end”  – God’s Phychiatry,  Charles Allen

Most people are fascinated by a good mystery. We like to be challenged and to give our minds excercise. There is no greater mystery in this life than the mystery of God. He is a puzzle beyond our comprehension, but his greatest desire is that we will Try to know him as best we can. He longs for us to devote our lives to an understanding of his will and ways. He has given us the holy scriptures to read and contemplate, and they hold both questions and answers which can occupy a lifetime. If we will work to unlock the mysteries of God. He will help us and lead us to ever greater understanding. We must spend time daily with the Lord in order to know him more. We need not expect answers immediately, but we can live with the questions and struggle out their solutions. No greater challenge awaits us, but its reward is finer than the purest gold if we will face it.”

The Right Way to Sneeze – Please People

The Right Way to Sneeze
By Sandra Torres

This is something we all need to learn and practice. I can’t stand when I see someone be so careless, unfortunately there are too many germs floating around. There are many diseases that can be spread from person to person by a sneeze or cough. I definitely don’t want to share your germs or touch what you touched after you sneezed or coughed into your hand.

Take your part in controlling your germs and sickness’. The problem is most people are selfish and as much as they are very critical of others and what they do, they are not considerate of them or don’t think they should abide by the same rules. Take your part, and if everyone played a role we’d all be a little healthier.

I recommend you practice this All the time and be considerate of others.

When you cough or sneeze, never cough or sneeze directly into the air and never ever into your hand(s). To prevent germs, when you cough or sneeze, do it into your elbow. Bring your arm up to your face and cough or sneeze into your elbow bend as oppose to your hand. You’re going to need your hand again. You’re going to have to grab on to something “public” or touch something, or never know when you need to shake someone’s hand.

Use hand sanitizers whenever you can- carry around those little bottles and use it often in public – especially if you’re the type who is always extending a warm handshake out. Have you noticed people today aren’t so receptive to shake hands too much? They would rather give you a pound – which is a fist to fist touch.

Wash your hands often as well, If I have a tendency to itch my face or rub my eye, I definitely don’t want to do it after I touched something that was sneezed on. So I wash my hands often and if I don’t have a bathroom around, I use my hand sanitizer. If I’m out of sanitizer, I tend to use the sleeve of my jacket or shirt to rub my eye if I have to.

The goal is prevention. Be more aware of what’s around you and play your part in spreading less germs. It’s better for all of us.

Find new health in the Ipod Shuffle 4th Gen

September 15, 2010 1 comment

Wow! This tiny little shuffle is my new best running mate. Since I received my new one last week it has increased my running performance.

Running has always been fun for me, well more like the result of what running does has always felt good to me. But it’s easy to quit when you don’t have a partner and can literally hear yourself breathing. Not sure how many of you out there actually run but the day I got my shuffle I loaded some songs in there and I couldn’t help but have the urge to go running.

This week I am back up to 4 days per week of running and my legs and my heart feel amazing.

This tiny little shuffle has no weight, it clips right on to my workout top and off I go.  It is so easy for me to click and change the song as I’m running.
This new 4th gen Ipod shuffle is tiny, it’s awesome and it’s getting my butt back into shape.  My old one was too big and bulky and I didn’t want to put uneven weight on my arm with an armband. The new Ipod nano’s look pretty awesome too. This one is just ideal for me and my needs and for $49, I couldn’t go wrong. It’s a great boost and has gotten me back on my running grind. I love it. And I highly recommend this little guy to everyone who needs a pep in their step. It definitely gets you in the mood. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. Thanks Apple, I feel healthier already!

Bare Truth About Social Media

September 8, 2010 2 comments

I know many people who don’t fully understand Social Media.. This is a quick post.

BE LIKE-ABLE.

I will buy from you because of one of two reasons; 1) I like you, because you have interacted with me and I will spend money to support you if you have a good product and 2) I Need the product and I like you so I will buy from you.   I do not shop on corporate sites where their customer service is rude or arrogant and I will not shop with the local small business owner.

So interact and get to know your Social Media network of friends.  Do not ‘friend’ people just to merely send them a link or post on their wall.  People hate that, cause I hate that. It’s so informal.  And I can even read right through when someone Tries to be perceived as “nice” on my wall with a gesture of their link.. No thank you, you will be deleted.  I am a woman with high intuitions meter.  The only way to success on these many platforms is to be liked and respected.

What the Bible Would Say About Social Media

Social Media is patient

Social Media is kind

It does not envy

It does not boast

It is not self – seeking

🙂 Social Media is You..and you must Give of yourself, your time, your heart and Be Nice.

To your Success!

The Real 'Fake' Housewives of NJ

September 7, 2010 5 comments

ok, ok… I know this here can be a debate -full for all you fans.  For all you housewives and fans out there I’m going to tell you how I see it.  How this strongminded Jersey girl sees the fools of the housewives of NJ.

One by one.

Teresa Guidice – Ugh… sweety get over yourself. You’re a grown woman with a big mouth. That big mouth obviously got you in trouble.   You’re having marital issues, you think you are all that. You think you are really tough don’t you?  Big bark is all you got sweety. Be a woman and act like a lady. How dare you push Andy Cohen? I hope he sues you for whatever you have left.   A mother of 4 or 5 girls, I’ve lost count already, needs to act like a mother and role model. Don’t be too quick to judge Danielle when you can’t even act mature yourself.   You, sweety, are not any better than Danielle.

Jacqueline Laurita – I kinda like you, you seem sincere. You seem to have a great intelligent husband that can ground you.  Don’t follow in Teresa’s footsteps though.  You’re asking for trouble if you do.  Stay the independent thinker you are.

Danielle Staub– Poor Danielle. I’m not on your side but I’m not against you. I can see the sincerity of needing to feel accepted and not wanting to be judged by your past.   I may not agree with all that you do.  But I forgive you for your past, and after Teresa’s need for attention this season, I kinda like you.   I feel bad for you.  I am not God to judge you like the rest of the world wants to.  I’ll leave that up to him. I do think you need some good quality friends. Everyone seems to be using you for either a punching bag or for camera air time like Kim G.

Kim G – Ugh.. not a housewife.. but a wanna be housewife.

Caroline Manzo – I really like you, I follow you on facebook.  But this reunion show showed me something about you.  This motherly figure everyone wants to portray you as is gone in my eyes.  You are seemingly too wise to be so judgemental of others. You seem to feel like you know everything and you are not willing to grow as an individual.  A woman and mother to me is forgiving and has forgiveness character traits.  Stop rolling your eyes, you are not as perfect as you want everyone to think.  You spend more time being judgemental of Danielle than acting like a strong mother as you should.

Dina– Good move.  Who wants to deal with the drama?

So now Danielle has left the show.  Bravo must have 2 new participants in mind for next season. Because Caroline, Jacqueline and Teresa are just way too boring.

iVote these ladies… ‘Ugh’ – Act like REAL ladies.  But maybe this show would be boring without the drama. Anyway, Bravo please bring on an intelligent grounded person like Sonya from NY.

That’s all for now.

Why does TD Bank need Regis and Kelly?

September 6, 2010 5 comments

You know, I always used to think that a celebrity sponsorship actually meant something.   If you have a celebrity backing up your product or service means something; It means you must be a good product or service.  Right?

I mean, if a celebrity is sponsoring a product, it makes me want to buy it or be a part of it, or does it?

The way a celebrity represents the company actually means so much to me as a consumer.  If a celebrity actually looks like he’s reading lines from a given script, is not too enthusiastic about the product and if he/she or them feel like “sell outs”  I can always tell. Because it always comes off in their appearance.

The first commercial for TD Banks that made Kelly Ripa actually look like she was reading such a long winded “they are so great speech” made me realize something, she didn’t seem to believe what she was saying, but TD Banks needed her to say it.  They ofcourse paid her to say it. So does that give credibility to TD Banks?

When I worked with a company a while back who happened to hire Joe Montana to represent us at a trade show. Considering the company actually failed to have good practices, made me realize the old truth that money talks to these celebrities and it doesn’t matter whether or not the company is good or not.

Celebrity representation does not actually mean much of anything to me today.

Whether celebrities believe in a product or not, money talks and if the check meets their wants, they will say what you want them to say, when you want them to say it.

Now I don’t shun this to every celebrity sponsorship, I am a big lover of FRS energy drinks and do actually believe Lance Armstrong drinks it because it makes sense for him to.  But I tried FRS because of their offer and after reading they have a multitude of athletes that actually use their product.  Although Lance Armstrong is the main face, they have multiple fans of their healthy energy product.

The crazy thing is now everytime I see a TD BANK commercial with Kelly Ripa, I actually think that bank ‘needs’ a celebrity sponsorship, because they are just not capable of earning their “quality customer service”  reputation without her.

The common people are the proof.  I believe the common person.

The fact of the matter is, money talks and celebrity’s do not always do their due diligence to see whether or not the company they are representing actually is a quality company that they believe in.

Do you actually think Kelly Ripa even has a bank account at TD Bank?  The answer is probably not.

Advertising and Branding has alot to do with who you can pay to represent your product, but quality can often fail.  Do not be fooled to thinking because a celebrity is sponsoring this product or service it actually means something. Today, it means absolutely nothing. Any company can hire an array of celebrities by going through their agents.

So it makes you think.

If you have a TD Bank account and either love or hate them please let me know in a comment below.  I’d rather get the facts from the common person and I would believe you any day of the week before I believe a celebrity.

So ‘I Vote’ TD Bank commercials thumbs down, whoever their ad agency is, needs to be changed, I truly believe they are doing more harm then good, since it all looks so apparently scripted out.
