Remember me ranting about, “practice what you preach”? I have been going thru some trying times the past couple weeks and I am not out of the woods yet but I will tell you what! It pays to have good people in your life. Things are staking up on the negative side, and I am getting a little overwhelmed, but I have so many people willing to keep me on the right side of life.

You know what? Those negatives have the potential to take over no matter who you are. But, I am confident in the army of wonderful people in my life. A good number of people to smack me across the face and just tell me to snap out of it. Some of them can tell something up, bless those individuals for sure. Some of those I confide in I will spill the negative beans on the table and they just throw them to the dogs. I’ll be venting to one of them and they will be like didn’t you just write about this a few weeks ago? HA! Some of them just simply say “Marc you are being negative.” Sometimes that all I need to snap back in the positive! The humorous truth is that sometimes Negativity is so trancing that even if you tell yourself you are being negative it still does not work, but for some reason you hear the words in a another voice and it is like they are throwing light bulbs at my head. I am sure there is some scientific psychological explanation, that I would love brought to my attention. For now I’ll settle for knowing that IT WORKS!

Friends as you all know come and go all our lives. People can be in our lives for one minute and carry a memory for a life time in your heart. Others are there to support you every day you need it. I am so grateful that I have so many people that will listen when I am down and keep their hands out for the next time I fall.

My friend Erin a long time good friend has said longer then I can remember that she holds pieces of me. She spoke some very wise words about these pieces a couple weeks ago. Periodically I joke around with her and ask for my pieces back but she refuses to give them back. What a novel concept to show you care for someone. I give pieces of me out to just about everyone, it is their choice if they choose to use them in their life puzzle. I take other peoples pieces without them realizing right away, sometimes!

Basically cherish anyone that you come across in your life. I guarantee they have something good to offer and vise versa. Give them a chance and hope that they would do the same for you. The next person you see could be that piece missing from your puzzle, and it is every bit worth it to find out. Some people are meant to be, some people are meant to never leave,  some that were in your life for a long time may fade away, some you just meet and a new forever is born. Some you may miss leaving behind, some that don’t seem to fit, Some that just won’t let you have any pieces of their life.  In any scenario that works for you it is no doubt the support of friendship in all our lives is very important. They will come and go all the time. The ones that go make sure you learned something valuable before they walk away. MAKE FRIENDS WITH EVRYONE, they are more exciting then enemies

“Face it, we are all part of support groups, it is all our friendships.”

-Marc Meyer-


How much do you value your friendships?


About upwithmarc

A creative mind takes no label. A positive mind sees past that which is easy to find. Find the things you love in life and share them with others. I am an artist. I am a positive thinker. I am on a quest to love everything life gives to me. On the outside I am no different then anyone else but on the inside I feel I have a lot of different things to share. My goal is to find those willing to listen. Those willing to share there thoughts in return. I have a long list of goals in my life, some I have met and all the rest I am getting closer to every day. I want to write a book, I want to be a motivational speaker, I want to own an art gallery, just to name a few.
