The need for drama
As humans, we all crave the need for drama. Drama can give us excitement and a sense of fun. We can either meet this need resourcefully or unresourcefully. Explore with JJ how we can understand the pitfalls of unresourcefully meeting our need for drama and how we can meet our needs resourcefully.  “A rumor is a social cancer: it is difficult to contain and it rots the brains of the masses. However, the real danger is that so many people find rumors enjoyable. That part causes the infection. And in such cases when a rumor is only partially made of truth, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly where the information may have gone wrong. It is passed on and on until some brave soul questions its validity; that brave soul refuses to bite the apple and let the apple eat him. Forced to start from scratch for the sake of purity and truth, that brave soul, figuratively speaking, fully amputates the information in order to protect his personal judgment. In other words, his ignorance is to be valued more than the lie believed to be true.” ― Criss Jami, Killosophy "Gossip ends at a wise person's ears." - Unknown

Interview with Founder of Eco Tan, Sonya Driver
Eight years ago, Sonya Driver was a wife, a mother and a sister. She had the world at her feet and a great sense of self worth. She had just bought a beachside block of land with her husband to build their dream house and left her job as an international flight attendant to be a full time mother. Sonya’s world was turned upside down when her husband called and said the marriage was over. She was suddenly abandoned, unemployed and living in a run-down house. Sonya was left to raise her girls alone. To add to a dire situation, her gentle-spirited sister was diagnosed with a melanoma. In an attempt to lift her faith and be a strong, positive influence over her fragile sister, Sonya began a new life. She got up from the ground and spent two weeks volunteering in East Timor, where she fed hungry children and comforted the sick. She shampooed the hair of women who had never before had their hair washed. After two weeks living in a desolate village with little food or water, Sonya was distracted from her grim situation at home. Surrounded by people who had nothing, she was able to put her situation in perspective. Sonya returned to the Gold Coast determined to make a positive change and support her sister, whose cancerous growth had been cut from her arm, leaving a horrible scar. Still wanting to get a tan without the risk of harmful UV rays, they sought the next best thing. Sonya and her sister began getting regular spray tans together but soon became concerned about the ingredients they were constantly covering themselves with. Sonya began to research the ingredients used by many different brands, regardless of their claims. She says it only took her a few minutes to decide not to use their products anymore. After all, our skin is our largest organ, and much of what we put on it is absorbed into our bloodstream. Sonya started buying in samples of cacao, flower essence, chamomile and all things natural and organic and started mixing batches out of her tiny kitchen in her Currumbin house. In 2011, Eco Tan made Australian history by becoming the first and only tanning manufacturer to be certified organic by the Organic Food Chain under the Australian government. “I want to encourage women that no matter how dark your world turns, never give up and know you are worthy, strong and have value!” – Sonya Driver
