New Mid Month Brochure ... August!

I almost forgot to share this!

It's time for another mid month brochure here at my Tupperware Site.

There are some really wonderful and cute things in this mid month's brochure.
And as is our norm, there are a few short term items that you don't want to miss.



These are really great for the upcoming school year.  The Cupcake Keepers are soooo cute for keeping those lunch treats in 1 piece ... I mean who wants to have frosting in a bag and not on the cake.
Oh and that SnackBar Maker ... make your own bars and cute out the preservatives.  The Keepers are perfect for the SnackBars you can make in the Maker, but also for other treats too ... cookies, peanut butter crackers and more!


 


If you have a Minions lover in your house, or know one ... this set is soooo cute.  Can you see them having their snacks in this?  I bet you could even use it for lunches too.







Or keep those special treats together so they can pick their own as a reward.









Speaking of lunches ..



I have this "pre" PLUS and use it all the time when I am taking lunch to work.

I love that my salad doesn't get soggy with dressing and everything is packed together ready to go.  

Have some leftover protein from last nights dinner?  Grilled Chicken, Steak, Grilled Pork ... all would be perfect over a salad. Make that salad as you are cleaning/packing up any leftovers (or planned-overs, as we call them) and you really can just grab and go in the morning.

Oh and I haven't seen it yet ... but starting today (probably by this evening) items from the FALL catalog will be available for sale too!  Yes, that means you can get an order together from the Summer AND Fall catalogs AND Mid August brochure!

Don't forget to jump on over to my Tupperware Site and check out what we have to offer ... I have seen the new Multi Cooker that will basically replace 4 items in your cabinet.  I will definitely be checking into getting one of those!

Have any questions, just give me a shout.

Success

I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
How do you define success?

When can you claim success?


Is success what we do or what we inspire others to do?

I would think if you strive to be a teacher, and I don't just mean as a profession, it would be what you inspire others to do.  What you help them to learn about what they can do, what they shouldn't do or what they are meant to do.



I know there have been times that I have thought I was going to be so successful and end up thinking about what is in it for me, and then I really am not sure if I succeeded or not.  
Oh you can be successful and unsuccessful at the same time.

WHAT?  WAIT .. what did I just say?

You can be "successful" because you accomplished something monetarily, but is that the true measure of success?
You can be "unsuccessful" at the same time if all you have accomplished is put money in your pocket.  
You need to make a difference when you are successful.  

In my opinion, you need to make people want to do the same thing that you have done, accomplish the things that you have with your help.  Your help can be just being the inspiration, by sharing the knowledge that YES YOU can do it.

Let's try to be the type of successful that helps us to inspire others to do what they want and are able to do, without putting limits on what they can do.

THAT in and of itself could be the true meaning of success.

Where is YOUR Happy Space

Is there a place where you feel safe?
A place where you can let go and be yourself?

You know that place that you call your "Happy Place".

My Happy Space

I know that I always feel at peace when I am by the water.
I don't know that I could live ON the water, but living BY the water brings a smile to my face.  The changing scenes the sky, even when a storm is rolling in, is always gorgeous to view.



Now if You (I) still need a reason to smile ... 



a little wine would be a great addition.

Help in finding the real you

If you are looking to "find" yourself and don't know where to start (like me) you might want to check out Martha Beck.



Martha is a sociologist, a life coach, an author and speaker.  From what I heard, she was a speaker at Limelight by Alcone's conference and did an AWESOME job.  I wish I had been able to be there, because from what I heard the conference was phenomenal but her talk sounded like it was one of the highlights.

I will be perfectly honest here.  
I had actually never heard of her before, which is kind of crazy because she has so many books that she has written.  
In fact, when I looked on Amazon they listed 103! 

I am forever looking for things to read on Amazon (love to keep my Kindle "full" so I can always find something when I'm waiting) and I had NO idea.  Hang head in shame....

When I first looked into her, because of all the Limelight buzz, I saw this ...  "All my life, I've addressed crowds because I'm scared of public speaking..."  I was immediately drawn to learn more, you see I saw "I'm scared of public speaking" and said to myself ... a kindred spirit.  I know, I know, I can talk about a lot of things but public speaking .. definitely NOT my cup of tea.

I figure I've found something/someone good, someone who just might be the catalyst to finding out just who I am or who I want to be.  I know, after all this time, I still don't know if I am where I am suppose to be, where I want to be, so it is definitely time to get my act together.   Better late than never, right?

But hey I'm not the only one who is thinking she is pretty good person to help me on this journey, even Oprah Winfrey said "She's one of the smartest women I know".  Pretty nice endorsement, don't you think?

You can find Martha's blog here.
I'll see you there.

More Karma insight

Time to recharge.
Time to take a look and make sure you are giving off what you want to receive.



I know that when someone is being "ugly", and I don't mean how they look physically, but how they treat others or us, we think Karma's gonna get them.

With some of the things that have been happening lately, to me especially, I've been wondering if just maybe I'm not as "nice" or "sweet" or "kind" to others as I thought.

It just might be time for a Karma check up in my life.

How about your life?  
Are you Karma Safe?
Are you sure?

WE are important

Yes, I am important.
Yes, I am special.
And so are you.


I know we all want to be accepted and loved for ourselves.
Sometimes we think that if we put ourselves aside and just concentrate on that "other" person, they will love us just as much and all will be perfect.

Sometimes that doesn't happen.
That "other" person doesn't love you as much as you love them.



We need to respect and love ourselves to see that and accept it.
And then move on.  
YOU are special and deserve to be loved and respected for YOU.
But if you do forget this ... I will continue to remind you.

Don't forget that.
