Usually when I listen to accepting speeches I sort of tune out unless the person says something funny or really starts crying. But being in the audience and up for an award, I found myself really listening to the speeches. Through all the normal
"I want to thank..." stuff I started to hear pure passion from the winners and recognized that I am also that passionate about what I do. I felt a strong connection to each winner and totally inspired and motivated to continue to do great work.
I am a very very competitive person, I want to win at everything I do and I am not going to lie about this, I wanted to win this thing but I can honestly say that it did not bother me that a show I had never heard of (Elbow Room) won. This surprised me a little bit, and I never thought I would say "It's an honor to just be nominated" but the truth is it is an honor to be nominated and turns out it is also very inspiring.
