Variety Friday (Fireflies)


I heard this song sung last night at my elementary school’s performance. Last night a memory was made

As a single male in my 30’s with no kids, society has made me very cautious to work with young children. But here I am anyways. I love kids of all ages. I made 6 new friends the first day I walked into the classroom. As the days pass it began happening, several students throughout the school begin to say hi to me looking for high fives and hugs. With my job taking me all over the school I cannot step too far out of my classroom without hearing “Hi Mr. Marc” from those little inspiring voices. It would be a big fat lie if I said I did not enjoy the attention. The most unique thing is I am not trying to win these kids over I am just being who I am.

These kids are my lightening bugs! They are lighting up my world. I get a thousand hugs and they certainly do teach me how to dance. I am slowing down planet Earth to notice more with these kids that may otherwise go unseen. I wonder if this is where my motivational mark is for speaking? To kids?

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.

    I like your comment that these kids are your “lightning bugs”. It’s no secret that children affect us more than they know. They make us want to be better adults, better role models. They are like sponges so it is our responsibility to show them, by example, to become wonderful people. When they grow up, they realize you were a positive and everlasting influence on them.
