UPwithmarc Memes 2015

I have spent over a year putting memes together each week. They are all original quotes by me. All the photos are pictures I have taken unless I sited otherwise. It took a lot of time to put this together but I am excited that I have them all in one spot. I would be grateful if you had a spare 8 minutes to check them all out. Please feel free to let me know which one is your favorite.

Have an amazing day and as always I am so grateful for all of your support and following.

Meme Monday (Make it happen)

Had some extra time so I thought I would make a quick meme. This meme is related to my posts for tomorrow and Wednesday!

make it happen

Variety Friday (Jim Rohn)

1402692020

If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. ~Jim Rohn

Exactly! Thank you Jim. If you don’t like your job, change it. If you don’t like where you live, change it. If you don’t like how you think change it. The only thing that keeps you from a happier life is YOU! Your true friends will support you. Your family will support you, even if they don’t agree. You want a better life you have to be willing to change because whatever you don’t like about your life now is not going to change for you.

Meme Monday (Need)

need to be

Do what YOU want. After all it is YOUR life!

Famous Quote Friday (Les Brown)

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.

-Les Brown

I discovered Les Brown only a few weeks ago. He encompasses who I want to be. He talks about goals, change, greatness and positivism. Goals are my life and big changes have become part of my life as well. Les Brown is a motivational speaker inspiring people to follow their dreams. His famous phrase is “it’s possible.” He is correct, for all of us it is possible. Go for everything you want in life, shoot for the moon. You are going to discover so much inspiration on your journey and even if you don’t get there you still know you are great and you earned every part of your life. You will still land among the stars.

You don’t hear about when the tears drop from my face. You don’t hear about the negativity I fight with to stay positive. You don’t hear about many of the challenges I face through change. Every bit of it exists in my life. I am human I make mistake, I fail, I fall, but in the end of the challenges I stand in victory, be it big or small, because I am shooting for the moon. With my never give up attitude and my will to always do my best, I always learn ways to be more positive about my life and the lives of others around me. Love your life, love your journey and love the destinations you reach for.

If you have 4:30 minutes you really should watch this sample of Les Brown. Have a great weekend, I love all of you.

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?

Meme Monday (Goals)

Goals will give your life success. It is something to reach for, something to hope for, and something to accomplish.

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.

Meme Monday (Luck)

When you give everything a trying luck will give you the advantage at the right moments in your life.

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!
