Soda Splurge!

I'm not a regular soda drinker, or pop if you call it that... But today an Orange soda sounded really good. So, what did I do? I snatched a Sprite and added 2 drops of Young Living Orange Essential Oil. #splurge

Below is Nutrition Facts off the label of Orange Soda. It is becoming common knowledge in today's society that many of the ingredients in soda are not healthy for you; whether it is Coke, Grape, Cherry Pepsi or Orange soda.

Between the high sugar, artificial colors, high fructose corn syrup... it doesn't make me wonder why America's obesity rate continues to increase. Of course fast food and other unhealthy eating and exercise habits contribute to that as well.
Now this is the label of a Sprite. There is still sugar, but 24 grams vs. 44 grams. 

I'll take half the sugar any day. It contains literally half the sugar content. I almost did a double take because it just doesn't make sense the sugar is double, but it is!

For me, all I need to do is add 2 drops of YL Orange Essential Oil and wah-la I am now sipping on an 'orange' soda; without the added sugar, calories and artificial colors.

End result; clean soda & organic EO! 

What makes you feel great?

It the world we call current, it feels like someone is always judging us for our actions, our words, our beliefs. I'm sure you could continue to add to the list if given some thought. What truly makes you feel great? 

I love the quote below because it hits the heart of what makes me feel great. I have enjoyed being a hairdresser for that reason, making each and every person feel like a "somebody" when they leave. Some already have that feeling before even sitting down, but many don't. Do you recall the true reason you went to the salon last? Maybe you can't style your hair anymore. Or you want something new. You're feeling down so you want to spruce something up. Many people come into the salon because they don't feel great about themselves and want a change, something new to make them feel great. THAT is why I loved being a hairdresser.

Now that those days are behind me (for now anyways) it reiterates why this quote hits the sole with me. I strive to 'be somebody who make someone else feel great'. 

Make someone smile today.
