Famous Quote Friday (Helen Keller)

“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.”

– Helen Keller

 

That is it right there! Life should be a great adventure. Life is what you make it. If you want to make it nothing go right ahead. I may not have a lot of money; frankly my life feels like it is going down whitewater rapids sometimes. If money is what mattered I would be sitting in a great job with graphic design and great people back in Illinois where almost everyone I know live. But that is not my life. Everything in life is not only an adventure it is a learning experience. Through heartbreak I discovered new passions, and I am still discovering more. I want to be a motivational speaker…THAT is my great adventure. Will I get there? Will I stick to it? Will it take me places I have never been? Will it make sense? I will fail, I will fall, I will cry, I will take steps toward the edge of my life, but there is one thing some people don’t know about me. Through times of weakness I ALWAYS DO MY BEST and I NEVER GIVE UP!!!! Everything happens for a reason. I moved down here to Florida at a chance to take a job as a Zip-line tour guide and it turned into something much greater and completely different. Now I am a ESE Paraprofessional working with children with autism. My job goes beyond that title with all the kids I interact with at the school. In an adventurous life you always have to be ready for it to change. Just so you know I love whitewater rafting and oddly enough when I balance myself back up I realize how much I enjoy the challenges.

I sit here, on the patio of life’s next great adventure, knowing I have choices in my very own choose your own adventure lifestyle, and it makes me feel pretty awesome. No one can stop me, all anyone can do is help and support me. What is next for me? Where will I end up? What holes will I fall in and what trips to the sky will I elevate to next? I know one thing; MY LIFE IS FAR FROM NOTHING. I hope every one of yours is too. Take a look at the menu, are you hungry for life? What kind of adventure will you order next?

Famous Quote Friday (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I may not be popular now, I may not be intellectual enough for some, I have not mastered everything I am interested in, but I will in time be able to inspire everyone willing to listen. Not only will I leave a trail but I will leave directions on how to get where I am. I am not sitting on the achievements of the American dream, I am sitting on the adventure of the unmapped trail of my life. I have taken risk after risk, experienced failure after failure, but also lived through success after success; Ralph left us a trail through individualism, naturalism, and the freedom of your soul. Especially in this day in age, now we get wrapped up in what everyone else is doing and in where everyone else is going. It’s a fine line to realize if you are doing what society and social media have planned for you or if you are doing what you want. I am not rebellious of what people of this world have taught us toward our future I just realize there is so much more this world has to offer. If you are ready to live your life take a step sideways and create a brand new experience in your life. Take a risk outside of the safety of your regular life. Do something you have never done or something you never thought you would do this weekend and see what happens! Live your life on your own trail.

Famous Quote Friday (Bess Hardwick)

“The greatest gift is a passion for reading.”

– Elizabeth Hardwick

Elizabeth Hardwick, also known as Bess, was a writer as well as a writing teacher was certainly not shy to the benefits of reading. She was also a critic to American literacy. We all should be grateful to have the resources to read and we all should be grateful for the ability to read. With the ability and resource to read the greatest gift is the passion for it. What Bess realizes is all of us have this passion. We are gifted with the desire to want to read. You take for granted the amount you read every day. We are always reading everywhere but your true passion for reading is inside a book, magazine, or even a blog. When you role past a paragraph and you want to know more that is your passionate side talking to you. You cannot wait for the next chapter or the next month issue, that is passion. Passion is all positivism, you find something you love and you want more. When you read you learn, that is what makes it such a great gift. Not only do you have that passion for reading you have the passion to learn more. We are all reading all the time, don’t you owe it to yourself to find reading material that will inspire you? Gift yourself this weekend and go to the library to find your passion.

I love all of you.

Famous Quote Friday (Homer Rice)

You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward.

But both of these methods are only temporary.

The only lasting thing is self-motivation.

– Homer Rice

 

Former football star and coach, Homer Rice’s words could not be any more simple. Self motivation is the key to anything astounding in your life. I think we can all relate to all part of Homer’s quote though. Fear is not a very pleasant feeling but that fear is when survival techniques start to kick in. That fear motivation is not going to get you were you want to be in life. It will turn into more of a struggle then a reward. Now to be motivated be reward seems great for sure. Nothing like positive feedback on something you were working on. Rewards give you that motivation to move forward, but the lasting motivation comes from rewarding yourself. You can easily motivate yourself. With determination you can build that can do attitude to conquer those fears. You can build a routine of goal setting and achievement and reward yourself along the way. Your self-motivation will last as long as you want it to last, the only variable is you. You have the power in you to do anything you want but you ultimately need to motivate yourself to get there because any other motivation will always fall short!

Famous Quote Friday (Unknown)

No matter how slow you go,

you are still lapping everybody on the couch

-Unknown

Ah yes the wondrous Unknown quotes! Are they famous? I don’t think that matters because most of them worth repeating are very inspirational. This quote is really summed up in two words, “keep going”. Everyone takes a different time frame to do things. Whatever you are trying to accomplish; it does not matter when, it matters that you keep going for it.

Sometimes I feel like things are going slow for me, but in reality I am learning so much in lifes journey. At the pace that things change in life sometimes you just need to slow down and take things in. You need to enjoy your journey or accomplishment. To do that you need to achieve things at your own pace. The greatest part is, you are getting farther in life and achieving more then those that are doing nothing with theirs.

Famous Quote Friday (Oprah)

“The only courage you ever need is

the courage to live the life you want.”

Oprah Winfrey

 

Do you have the courage to live the life you want, or do you let laziness get in your way and take life’s easy route? I am not going to dabble in the definitions of an easy route to life but to the individual that defines it I am sure the word boring comes into play. We have tons of thoughts and ideas in our heads. We have tons of dreams that we wish would come true. The best part about living the life we want and making our dreams come true, is that all we need is the courage to make it happen.

Do you have the courage to stand up for what you believe in? Do you have the strength to venture beyond the norm of your life? Having courage is about taking risks. Fear not that it will be difficult at times. Be ready to fail, be ready to learn and be ready to live.

It is Friday people, the end of some peoples work week and the end of some people’s school week. UPwithmarc wants you to grab a hold of your courage this weekend and venture beyond your comfort zone. You want to be a painter, start painting. You want to travel, start a plan for where to go and how to save for it. You want to meet new people, there are dozens of ways to do it you just have to get off your butt and go. Do something new this weekend, maybe it is risky maybe not. If you fail try again, if you succeed GREAT!

Have a Courageous weekend everyone.
