Living on the side line!

Standard

*** This story is part of Camp NaNoWriMo hence, it is an unedited version of the story i probably would like to fix in future.

I know it’s just a photograph, just like any other – the kinds you saw in ‘Jerry Maguire’! The one with Tom Cruise’s shoulder, except this time, that shoulder belongs to me. Now, I know its just a picture, and I was little off the focus anyhow, so it shouldn’t bother me, right?

Wrong!

I mean, this is how it has always been, starts with me being everything and ends with me being just a limb, I shoulder – to cry on, climb on and easy to forget and move on.

It all started long ago, when I was taught just one thing…Make money!

And make money I did. Although, I learnt another thing, to spot a talent, and then to attract the biggest bum with talent in town. So they called me a Resource/Talent Manager.

I met men after men, sometimes women too (not for the same reason) who were sinking low in life and needed me (a shoulder).

Shouldn’t I be some sort of ‘selfless, doing the good for others’ sort of soul?

But I am not, I am tired of being used and then left with nothing, not even thank you.

Anyhow, this particular photograph is about a different story, it’s about a hero in making, it’s about hard work, tears, hopes, stress, love and his side kick.

Being hero is obviously not easy, first you need to have a talent, which is not so common these days. Then you need someone who would believe that you do have a talent. That first person who believes in you, sees you as you want to be, may be on some future day is the key here.

While people write about heroes all the time, I want to focus on the side kick, that one man/woman behind all the success – that cut out shoulder who is never talked about.

How does it feel to be the one, always on the side line?

“The Liebster Blog award”!

Standard

So here is a perfect day wasted, in being frustrated, irritated and low. All, for no apparent reason at all.

Harmons?

May be, but Just past the afternoon, I realized that no one is going to show up to change a thing. So I decided to snap out of it myself. There I was, thinking of all the good things that could happen to people, ahem, me. Although, I must admit, nothing in the list could equal, being awarded as someone’s favorite thing.

Yes!

So, finally today, first time ever, I have received an award, “The Liebster Blog Award”!

I jumped up and down,

 Screamed a little,

 Laughed,

 Screamed some more,

 Yes, yes, Yes, I did it, I did it!

 But then, it dawned on me, I didn’t know, what the hell is The Liebster Blog award?

The GOD of Internet : Google, quickly came to my rescue, and enlightened me with the details.

“Liebster” is a German word, literally translating to being favorite or beloved. Blah, Blah, Blah!

So with some more, OH MY GAWD! OH MY GAWD! I found out the rules:

1. Must thank the presenter. (Like one would forget, Huh! People like me would have spent their lives rehearsing the thank you note.)

2. Link back to the presenter. (I am not so sure how that’s done, but sounds fair.)

3. Copy the award in your blog. (My Favorite!)

4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed. (that shouldn’t be so hard)

5. Leave a note to all the lucky souls. ( Yes Sir)

Thank you Eliza, for considering me worth a second thought.

So, Linking is done (I think), I will add the logo later.

Moving on to number 4, I am avid reader, so I have a long list of favorite blogs here, since award is for new and upcoming bloggers I am skipping the obvious big names.

 To come up with this list was harder than I thought, for both technical and emotional reasons. But here are my finalists:

1. Mike’s look at life: In my opinion this is the most amazing combination of pictures and words to describe a life well lived.

2. Mike10613: Another mike in my list, like he says ‘this site is English, get used to it’, is a blog by an English bloke, about simple things that make life.

3. Muddy Socks: At first look, it might seem like a personal journal, but really is a story about fight of a soul against oneself, in pursuit of her dreams.

4. Little Miss Vix: she is my favorite bed time story-teller, period.

5. The Understander: This blog should be listed in the most dangerous weapons of mass destruction, the man behind it, is capable of killing you remotely, with a fit of laughter, just with his words.  

On a serious thought, I really like the idea behind this award, “You must Share the best of what life throws at you.”
