Oprah Winfrey, Famous Quote Friday

“When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.”

Oprah Winfrey

I don’t think I even need to explain who Oprah is! This quote can certainly be written more in the positive sense but I think the value of the negative connotations prove more positive on your thought process in the end.

When you value what you do the world will value who you are. If you want the world to see who you are you have to see you for who you are first. This makes perfect sense. Give yourself respect. Have pride in who you are. Have faith in your successes. Look into the mirror and stare at your own perfect beauty. The love you show for yourself will resonate within those around you. Never change who you are in the eyes of others, only change through your own hearts desires. Be original and stay original, it will follow you. Love yourself, love others and love will follow you.

Have a great weekend, be original and do what makes you smile.

FREE LOVE $1

YOU HAVE TO CHECK THIS OUT! 🙂

All our lives we meet amazing people and see amazing things. Several years ago today Michael Morris simply wanted to brighten peoples day on his birthday for just $1. His time with us was short but beautiful. I was not fortunate enough to meet this wonderful person Michael but I was however lucky to meet his sister Andi Morris who is building something wonderful, in Michaels memory, to brighten peoples days. I will be brightening peoples day today and Andi would be eternally grateful for others who participate as well. Andi is carrying out a tradition that has grown so much in such a short time.

FREE LOVE $1 EVENT

 

Andi MorrisWrites:

In honor of Mike’s birthday, we will be continuing a tradition that he started. He called his event “Free Love One Dollar” and it was simply a means to brighten a stranger’s day. Participation is easy:

***Get some $1 bills (even if you can only afford 1!)
***Get an envelope for each dollar and decorate it (You should probably include the phrase Free Love One Dollar or in memory of Mike Morris or both and/or other encouraging words and pictures, so people understand the dollar is there to make them smile)
***Take the dollar in the envelope and place it on a car’s windshield. Some ideas for venues are hospital parking lots, nursing home parking lots, churches, etc. The possibilities are endless, but there are a few places to avoid: mailboxes (that’s a felony), private property, illegal things 😛
***Take pictures! Make it fun, bring lots of people, race each other, smile 🙂
***Post pics and share stories

We are encouraging EVERYONE to invite ANYONE!!! This event is to share love in the memory of Mike. He would love to see everyone celebrate his day with happiness and sharing love with anyone and everyone, just as he always did. This can be a HUGE event! Invite friends in other states and countries to share the fun on September 25 🙂

 FL$1

In loving memory of Michael Jason Morris
September 25, 1979 – June 5, 2012

Pablo Neruda FQF

“Laughter is the language of the soul.”
– Pablo Neruda

Laughter is not only the language of the soul it is also a universal expression for positive amusement. When you laugh everyone knows what that means. Your soul can be regarded as a separate entity to your body, derived of thoughts, feelings and actions. Your soul is a positive part of your body.  No one has to learn to laugh it is something we are born with. The reason Pablo is saying, laughter is the language of the soul, is because we all have a positive soul. We all have a soul that is strengthened by laughter. We all have the positivism in us, it is the life we live and the choices we make that bring that positivism out.

Today, what positive things are you thinking about. What are the positive things you are doing today?

Laughter is the positive cure for almost anything. Make sure you have laughter in your life today and every day.

Lindsey Stirling FQF

“The only reason I am successful is because I have stayed true to myself.”

Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey is a Dub-step Violinist. She grow up with a heavy classical background. With age she began to experiment with mixing different kinds of music, ultimately coining a new genera of music for many to continue to follow. She was a quarter finalist on America’s Got Talent. She did not win it all but she kept going. She stayed true to her self and is now living in a world she only once dreamed of, performing spectacular music.

Staying true to yourself can be hard, it does take some determination. There are so many things that tempt us in other directions other than our own. How many success stories have you heard that were derived of fake actions or fake directions? None! Some may come close but eventually fall. To succeed you must expect hard times, you must be prepared for failure and rejection. Be yourself in every aspect and you will go far. As you go to things you want they will start to come to you at the same time.

I have lost so many people but gained many more by staying true to myself. Being me seems to be so hard sometimes but I stay true to myself and my goals in life. I am weird or annoying or unintellectual in the eyes of many but in the eyes of many more I have built a level of trust that can never be broken. I have built a level of determination for what I want out of life, that does not go unseen. I have always had my heart open for all those who wish to treat it with respect. It was not till a little after high school that I realized who I really was….I was meant to spread positivism and acts of kindness, and spread I will. I wish, in my last breaths, that I still have some inspiration left in me to pass on to those that lean over in care. That is my success, making as many people in this world as possible smile and keep smiling.

I am Kind, I am caring, I am sensitive, I am weird, I am funny, I am forgiving, I am strong, I am me!

Have an amazing weekend everyone. Lindsey’s Music is amazing, I feel she is shaping a new era of listening pleasure. Check out the song I am addicted to right now.

100th POST

Intellectual: Developed or guided by the knowledge rather than by personal experience.

I don’t want to live with my nose in a big text book drumming up tons of facts. I love reading for sure so don’t get me wrong, but I want to live outside in the real world experiencing and experimenting with success and failure. I don’t need a masters degree to prove anything. I don’t need to be monetarily rich. I certainly don’t want to brain wash you telling you what to do with your life.

I want to share my positive view points with those willing to read or listen. I want to hear everyone’s opinion too! I want to help everyone I can in any way I can. I have lost so much in my life but gained so much more. The success I seek in life now will never just fall on my lap, I will have to work very hard for it. There will be many downs on my path but when I am going up I am like a positive firecracker.

One thing about me that some of you may know. I have a hard time to this day accepting compliments. Or thinking of myself. That being said I want to take this moment to be a little full of myself in asking something from all of you. Now some of you may not know me in person, some of you I have just met, some of you I have known for many years, some of you are very good friends and some of you have known me for 32 years. I want everyone willing, either now or in the near future to leave a comment on this blog post. Not just any comment, a comment about me. Think back as far or close as you want. Think of a time I have helped you with something important, think of a time I have inspired you, hey maybe even a time I changed your life. In as many words as you want tell me about it. For those that don’t know me very well yet, maybe think of a blog or quote I posted that particularly inspired you and tell me about it. If you don’t have anything to say that is alright, stick around because the future holds many more positive things in it and we are going to live up to all of them together. It is really important to me that you comment. If it is something you do not wish to share in public you can always email me instead (upwithmarc@yahoo.com). I am not in any contest or looking for an ego boost I merely want to gather enough positivism to carry me through the next 100 posts.

I am grateful for all of you who share this blogging journey with me and hope you stick around so all of us together can keep making this a bigger positive experience! Have a great week and I look forward to hearing from you.

Selena Gomez FQF

“Being yourself is all it takes. If you want to impress someone, don’t be someone else just be yourself.”
Selena Gomez

Everyone knows Selena Gomez. Started out on “Barney and Friends” and now she is a famous actress, singer and fashion designer. She is 21 now and I wish I could date when she was quoted. Her words are so undemanding but very profound at the same time. Receiving what you want, getting where you want to be and being with who you want can all certainly fall under simply being yourself. What better person to be though? Originality is so important. For me I don’t want to be defined as part of a stereotyped group of people, I want to be defined as Marc Meyer! In this case I would much like http://www.upwithmarc.com to be seeping through every way possible of who I am! Positivism is taking over my life and I just want to share it with others. Some can’t handle the ultra positivism but those that can continue to motivate me again and again.

.

Who out there are we trying to impress and for what reason? If you are impressing people by doing something that is not in your nature you realize you have to keep doing that? Are you willing to keep doing something that you don’t feel 100% about just for the sake of your image? You want people to enjoy who you are when you are not even trying. Build up your friends, followers and audience with your own thoughts,  actions and interests. This concept of being yourself is so simple and so easy, I am not sure why people choose to follow the paths of others.

.

Be yourself today and every day. Make a lasting impression on the world with your life! Stand out by being original not someone we already know. LOVE YOUR LIFE, treat it as such!

This is my 99th post, I am so excited for the post I have lined up for Wednesday, my 100th post! be sure to check it out.
