“Twedding Tweetiquette”

Just for fun…

Because I am a Twitter fanatic, I had to share this gem of an article!

Tweet My Wedding? The Dos and Don’ts of “Twedding Tweetiquette” by Juliette Powell, Huffington Post:

Of the six weddings I was invited to this summer, four weren’t just weddings. They turned out to be what I have begun to think of as “the twedding.”

You know you’re at a “twedding” when:

1. Your wedding invitations were sent via the micro-blogging site
2. All aspects of your big day have been vetted by your twitter followers who suggest everything from wedding guests to wedding vendors.
3. Members of the wedding party take “candid” photographs and videos of the ceremony and upload them directly to twitpic and twitvid for community commenting.
4. Your wedding becomes a trending topic on Twitter.
5. The groom tweets “I’m married” before kissing the bride.

Book Signing with Simon T. Bailey

“Each of us is like a diamond, and each of us has the potential to be brilliant.”
– Simon T. Bailey

Simon is one of my favorite motivational speakers! His message is both powerful and sincere. His goal is to help others discover the precious gifts and talents they possess and guide them toward transforming their life. Simon is also well known for coaching business owners and partnering with organizations to acheive measurable results in the areas of leadership and service.

Simon recently authored “Release Your Brilliance” which essentially presents a road map for the journey to transformation. I have been reading this book for a few weeks now and highly recommend it. I have found that reading a few chapters at a time helps me digest the information slowly, and I’m really enjoying the interesting analogies, uplifting stories and interactive exercises.

I am excited to share the news that Simon will be at the Barnes & Noble at 2418 East Colonial Drive in Orlando on Saturday, January 17 to discuss and personally autograph his book. If you are able to attend the the presentation and book signing from 2 pm – 4 pm, I guarantee you will enjoy it!

For additional information on this event, please contact Melissa Spencer – Brilliance Institute, Inc. – 407-826-0000. Please visit Simon T. Bailey’s website to learn more about Simon, and to subscribe to Brilliant Carats, a free Ezine.

{ Attitude } is everything!

“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
– Kahlil Gibran

The universe is talking to me. The message is loud and clear, and it’s coming at me from all directions! It’s in the books I’m reading, the emails I’m receiving, the shows I’m watching… it says “Change your attitude!”. Well, ok then. It doesn’t cost anything and it sure would be nice to have a brand new, upgraded attitude.

I’ve come to realize that a positive attitude is one of the most powerful attributes a person can possess. The ability to be positive – at home or at work, in thoughts and in actions – is related to all the good things we seek in life, such as health, happiness, love and success. For some this comes easily, for others it requires more effort. (As you may have guessed, I fall into the latter category.)

This year, I am setting some different goals for myself. Instead of resolving to exercise more, eat less and keep my desk clutter free, I will focus my energy on being positive. I want to smile more and complain less, I want to nurture my inner spirit by connecting with more positive people and making better choices, and I’d like to encourage others to do the same.

No; strike that.

I will smile more and complain less, I will nurture my inner spirit by connecting with more positive people and making better choices, and I will do my best to lead others by example.
