“Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.”
– W.J. Cameron
“There is no sincerer love than the love of food.”
– George Bernard Shaw
You get a “Thanksgiving Two-fer” in the quote department. Why? Because I couldn’t decide between meaningful and funny. Then I realized it was in fact my newsletter and I didn’t have to decide – you all would probably appreciate both.
I, like many others, have been incredibly busy lately. We knew this 2-3 day work week was coming…then the cooking…then the shopping…then the decorating…then everything else that comes with time of year. Makes me wonder about the madness of the holiday’s.
And therein lies the problem – we see the madness and forget the purpose.
Today I want to encourage you to be kind to yourself. The people who are thankful for you – and I am sure there are quite a few – do not feel that way because of your cooking skills, party planning ability, or dessert choices. They are thankful for you! Stress will only cause you to miss out on all the wonderful opportunities to enjoy each other as friends and family gather to remember how truly blessed we each are.
In other words – if you realize the smoke billowing out of the kitchen is in fact your prized turkey, don’t let your day be ruined. Grab a video camera, take some real funny shots, mail it to that video reality show and try to make a couple of bucks. Life is too short to let a crispy bird upstage your holiday time.
Let me tell you about some women I know
I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to a Tupperware event organized by Christy Hurlebaus and her Grand Style group. Let me tell you – this ain’t your momma’s Tupperware.
The day was filled with consultant training and support. Time after time I heard women talk and share about growing their business, realizing freedom, living life on their terms, relationships, support, and confidence. What an awesome experience!
Thanks, Christy. I know I was there to speak to you all, but you all really spoke to me.
