If your heart turns blue, I want you to remember This song is for you, and you are full of wonder
-Emelie Sandé, Wonder
I enjoy to take care of my best friend's 2-year old daughter Ella. I love it when I play with her, tell her stories and she smiles. That's my award. That's what makes me happy and when I know I'm doing the right thing. At the Emmys people are nominated and already that is an honor of which most people can only dream. But the viewers mostly are interested in the winners. For me the Emmys is a celebration where all these talented and creative minds come together and have a great evening. These are the people who bring us joy and fun every week. For some guys these people are like family because they come into their homes, weekly or even daily, and become part of their lives.
Without them, without the TV and all these good shows, our lives would be less... (you can fill the gab with your own words, but something would be missing, wouldn't it?)
These guys fill the gap. They share their visions, their passions with us and inspire us in so many ways. You might not be one of these TV people but you can share your passion too. Don't act, don't try to pretend being someone else. Show people who you are and that's when you start to create wonder. You are full of wonder. You can't act like having a passion only because you wanna be rich and famous. Not even an actor can have success for a long time when he only does it because of the money.
You wanna be successful? Be yourself and see all the wonder that are inside of you. The real award is not a trophy, that's only a symbol, a visualization. The real award is the smile in someone's face, touching only one person can change her life and that makes it worth doing whatever you do.
For me it's not just a saying that all nominees are winner. We all tend to compare ourselves to those who might have a better life, so that we get motivated and maybe one day we will be on the same level with them. It's good to win, it's good to be the best, but that's not everything. Everyone in this world is part of it, everyone matters.
The one who inspired me to write this post is British singer Emelie Sandé. Every time I listen to her song "Wonder" I feel so much better. When you be yourself you are able to touch people and that is the award that really matters. A trophy can be bought, a smile not.
