Social media has yet to rise as a cornerstone for senior living marketing; in part because the audience to which it markets is not the mainstream user of Twitter, Facebook, or growing sites like Instagram.
Twitter users among the 65-plus population counted just 5% as of January 2014, with just shy of half of the age group reporting use of social media sites in general, according to the Pew Research Center, which compiles data across the U.S. on social media use.
But some communities are now finding that social media can play an integral role in promoting communities—not directly to consumers, but as a ways to gain the following of other industry players, and in turn, local and national media. Read More…
A strong focus on materialistic pursuits not only distracts people from experiences conducive to psychological growth and health, but signals a fundamental alienation from what is truly meaningful.

#livehappy – Universal truth… we all want to be happy. We all think we know how to do this. So that’s what we do. We do the things that we think will make us happy.
Sometimes this works. A lot of the time it doesn’t. Because the usual roadmaps to happiness are biased. They are misleading. I’ll be happy if only I make enough money. Or achieve enough success. Or win that tournament. Or get those awards, have a huge house, learn enough skills, and own his and hers Maserati’s. We live in a society of money and power, fame (or notoriety) and scientific progress. We grow up immersed in this broth of wealth and prestige and progress, so we naturally believe in these principles.
It’s a mistake to pursue happiness, even though it’s our constitutional right. Happiness firmly resists pursuit. But it’s possible to set up your life so happiness is likely. Like tending a garden. You don’t prepare the ground, toss in seeds, and get instant results. You have to maintain an environment that is conducive to growth. The same for your life.
There are definite steps you can take to bring happiness and peace of mind into your life. They take time and determination. Stay tuned in for more information.
Your task is to find happiness and peace of mind in a world that is increasingly full of challenges.
My task is to help you in this difficult endeavor. We can work together.

It’s true that you never know what’s waiting for you in this life just around the corner! In the meantime, decide what makes you happy and keeps you content and pursue these things wholeheartedly and with the exuberance of the child that you once were.
Happiness is a choice and while life will always present circumstances that will challenge your faith and test your strength one must always remember, “It’s all just life!”
Here at Fortune Cookie Messages we like to make fun of life’s unfortunate mishaps, situations and circumstances and while things aren’t always so funny when they are happening to you, remember that all things come to pass good and bad. Learn to laugh at yourself when you can, have a good cry when you need to and then remember the things that bring you happiness and live on. Don’t be afraid to try new things or visit new places. We live on a wonderful planet full of good people who basically share the same dreams and desires of simply living in peace, with joy and being surrounded by loved ones.
We wish you the very best that life has to offer and hope that you’ll find encouragement to live well while browsing our various topics.
