Getting Started

I have found that in most employment situations, there is a trickle down schedule in relation to  income. The person at the top makes a profit from the  work of those beneath them. And in many cases they tend to make more money from your efforts than you actually do.

When you think about employment in this way, it sort of makes every job look like a pyramid scheme lol. In almost every company there is someone at the top, making the big bucks or someone down the line who reaps the reward.

When I went out in search of extra income, I wanted something different. I was hoping for something more team oriented, where everyone benefits from collaborative efforts. And more importantly quality people and quality products! So I am anxious to dive in to this new opportunity to see if I have found a match 🙂

I had originally planned to sample and review a series of meal bars, but due to some unfortunate events this weekend I changed my mind. I spent the majority of Saturday morning and afternoon very sick. I couldn’t keep anything down. It was not fun. I was so weak and hungry, but I couldn’t manage to keep water in my belly for more than a few minutes.

Then I remembered a product sample I received called Twist Tubes 2 Go. You just mix one tube with 16 ounces of water and you have an instant vitamin water. I was craving nutrients and even if it didn’t stay down very long, I hoped maybe my body would absorb something. I stumbled to the kitchen and made myself a glass. The flavor I have is mango citrus and it was pretty tasty.  I sipped it slowly and then laid back down. My stomach rumbled and grumbled a bit, but eventually it calmed down and I was able to get some sleep. When I woke up around an hour later my stomach no longer felt uneasy and so I drank the remainder of my water. In no time I was back on solids. I gorged on a banana first, then an orange and eventually on a sandwich…lol

I had another glass this morning and have felt great all day. It is hard to believe the contrast from yesterday. Hence, I decided to tell you about Twist Tubes 2 Go instead of the meal bars. Although they are made by the same company and sold exclusively through our business.

I am eager to try the other flavors, I was impressed with the one that I had. I used to be really bad about drinking water. I went through this phase where I would flavor my water. I tried a lot of different brands and most of them were either too sweet or you had to squirt like half the bottle into one glass to taste anything. Not to mention, who knows what the weird liquid is that you are injecting into your water anyway. Half the time I can’t even pronounce the ingredients.

Twist Tubes IngredientsA full day’s worth of Vitamins A & C from cranberry, blueberry, carrots, beet, etc. And it tastes like Gatorade, actually it tastes better than Gatorade. I don’t have children yet, but if I did I would really take advantage of these. No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives (5 Calories).

They come in a bunch of different flavors and varieties from Immunity Health to Joint Health. I looked into the parent company and they have been using plant ingredients in supplements for more than 80 years! They grow, harvest and process all their plants on their own certified organic farm. And they guarantee all their products (180 day). Which means if they don’t work for you you can send them back. They have a whole line of all natural supplements, gluten free health food, sports drinks, shakes, meal bars, you name it. Their prices are very reasonable too. Check out how they stack up to the competitors here

I am going to call this one a winner and dig into some more of their health products. For me, meal bars and shakes are perfect for my lifestyle. They are easy and convenient, but from my experience they are not usually very good. Especially the shakes. They always seem to have a weird flavor of some sort. It’s had to explain, but I could never get past it. I will be pleasantly surprised if their shakes are as good as the Twist Tubes are 🙂

I will be trying the Milk Chocolate Meal Replacement shakes this week along with Nutty Dark Chocolate Wellness bar.They look delicious, I’ll let you know how they taste!

What Do You Think This Thing We Call “Life” That We Are All Experiencing is All About?

A friend of mine messaged me on FB today with the following questions: “So what do you think is happening? Like what do you think this thing we call “life” that we are all experiencing is all about?”

I read his message over and over again. Then I just stood there for several minutes and tried to formulate an answer to such a vast question. I thought, I absolutely believe in a higher power. However, I do believe it goes beyond that…

What is it that you personally are here to do? What is your path? Your purpose? Your destiny? Having faith may lead you in the right direction, but where do you end up?

Here is what I replied:

    Now that really is the million dollar question isn’t it? Growing up, I always thought of “life” like a school where we are given the same lessons and challenges each time until we get it right. Whatever “right” is. Each time we get a bit further along, but if we do not find our true path, we are sent back time and time again until we get it right. I am not sure I still believe exactly that, but I do believe we are all here in pursuit of enlightenment or greater purpose, so that maybe one day we will be able to answer that question.

    Funny you should ask me such a question right now. I just finished watching this video on YouTube, you should check it out:

    It can really make your mind swim if you think about it long enough, but I guess that’s probably a good thing. The more we ask ourselves the tough questions, the more we yearn to find the answers. For instance, if we think about our connection to all things on an infinite level, the realization of just how intricately woven our universe really is truly amazing. The infinitely possible results of our collective action for change is empowering. Just imagine the beauty that would come from love.
