Seeing The Right Things + #MyPostMonday Link-Up

We are a visual society. So much eye candy that we don't know what to do with It! The problem is that when we are supposed to react to what we are looking at (because everything we see has a message that goes along with it) we don't. We've become desensitized and we often don't get the visual signs we're supposed to!

I don't think the children were meaning to be insensitive when the 17- year-old waitress handed them their ice cream and they blankly stared and didn't react by saying thank you. They were desensitized because of all the visual and sensory stimulation. I don't think it warrants grabbing their ice cream and tossing it in the trash because none of them said thank you. (Yes, this happened just the other day and is in the process of going viral on Facebook.) Save your money, mom, and gently remind them that there is a visual message that they missed. 

'Cause we're all guilty of over-looking things that we're supposed to see in this visual, sensory-overloaded world that we live in!

Today is "My Post Monday!" It's all about original content from bloggers who care to share what is on their minds--from Crafts to Camping, Wellness to Wealth, Fashion to Food, and whatever else is on the brain!  I, for one, love to explore other sites for original, non-sponsored posts, tips, pictures and videos! Sponsored posts are great and I appreciate the information from well-written and authentic sponsored posts, I write them myself! But this linky is for non-sponsored posts because they are all about what the writer thinks, believes, and knows. It's not about a specific brand and what it compensates the blogger to promote! If I happen to find a great original, non-sponsored post, I'll link it up and share it with you here and on Twitter via the #MyPostMonday hashtag!  It's like being featured!  I can miss some amazing posts, but I don't want to!  So, in addition, if you'd like to link up yourself, you can do that too!  I'll visit your site, comment, promote and publicize! Remember, any link to your posts helps your blog numbers increase! (Affiliate links OK)
