1-in-100 Warrior Award:Samantha Craft

“Don’t go through life, grow through life.” – Eric Butterworth
Miro nominated me for the 1-in-100 Warrior Award a few days back. Nominations and recognitions like these give more strength to my will ,keep me grounded and inspire me to keep moving,learning and sharing the warmth and knowledge.
Miro has always been inspiring &encouraging others to keep doing the good work. He is a warrior poet with warm, loving,positive and brave spirit.
If you haven’t been in his sphere( something which I highly doubt) then today is the day. The beautiful world of warrior wisdom awaits all those who seek knowledge and meaning of life.
“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.” ~Heraclitus

What exactly is a warrior? Someone who wears a suit of armor and swings a sword around? A participant in a war? Nothing more than a soldier?

If these are the thoughts that spring to mind, think deeper.

A warrior is more than weapons and armor. It is a way of life. It is the belief that the greatest purpose in life is service to others. It is grace amid frustration, peace amid turmoil, and strength amid weakness and misery. We most often use this word to describe the brave men and women who risk their lives in the military and law enforcement to ensure our freedom and safety, but warriors are actually all around us. They’re in factories. They’re in offices. They’re in schools. They’re in hospitals, both as doctors and nurses, and as patients.

Courage. Honesty. Fearlessness. Grace. Peace. Service to others. No complaints. Nothing thought of as a blessing or a curse; everything simply accepted as another challenge to be conquered.

They’re not perfect, and don’t try to be, because they know such aspirations are futile. But they do the absolute best they can with what they’ve been given. Warriors no longer have potential. They are potent! They understand that knowledge is knowing, but wisdom is doing. And they are a very rare breed: as Heraclitus once said, only one out of every one hundred is a true warrior. This award is named in honor of those words and that truth. The symbol of the sword is used to represent their courage and strength, and the symbol of the feather quill pen represents their grace, beauty and creativity.

“Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground. –Theodore Roosevelt”

One such Fellow blogger who fits the bill perfectly is Samantha Craft( http://aspergersgirls.wordpress.com/) and I nominate her for the 1-in-100 warrior award. Samantha or Sam is determination,will and courage personified. I am posting the link of her “About Me” section so that all of you who choose to know more about her can surf in those warm loving waves and understand why I am so in love with this beautiful witty positive soul.

In her roars ,in her whispers
in her songs,in her screams
in the morning,in  the night
in the should and should nots
in the can and can nots
in the ups and the downs
in the smiles and the frowns
A heart that beats,a soul that cares
she never forgets to share
love,laughter and spring
a beautiful soul
a woman of substance
Sam is…

Guidelines for the 1-in-100 Warrior Award: Warriors are not motivated by awards or fame. They see awards not as an opportunity for the ego to rejoice, but rather an opportunity to honor other warrior brothers and sisters. To acknowledge and honor the rarity of the warrior, it is recommended that the recipient passes this award on to only *one* other blogger that they feel goes above and beyond to serve and inspire others, and who maintains their grace and positivity even in the face of difficult challenges, such as health issues, tragedy, injustice or loss.

Once an author is given the award, they may continue nominating one new blog author once a week, month, year… or whatever seems appropriate. It’s like a knight’s ability to bestow knighthood onto another whenever they choose. But only one at a time. The patience of a warrior is required.

Beautiful Blog and Very Inspiring Blog Award

Its Spring here !!
ok this is no surprise..but do you know what the spring carries in its purse…..,cool breeze,cough cold,flu,taxes,flowers and oh!! awards( bet you didn’t know all this)
I love awards. ( not a secret) and I believe they are the extension of the warmth and love we feel for each other, more the merrier. Recently I got nominated for some amazing awards, since I am running late in this category I am going to talk about two of them here today.
First is Very Inspiring Blogger Award from My Soul Sisters Autumn and Gabby. They are the best twinnies in the town.
Gabby is expert when in comes to celebrating unusual holidays. and mark my words pretty soon we will be following Gabby Calender( oh that will be so much fun)
And Autumn is a Magic fairy. Now all fairies know magic but Autumn spreads them not through wand but her beautiful poetry’s. check out their blogs for soul soothing poetry and chuckles.
This award would be incomplete if i don’t post a  list of seven things about me
1) i am scared of closed spaces
2) i love all colours but except for the shades found in a box of crayon, i have no knowledge of colours girls talk about( something which makes my gal pals think i may be an alien in a womans body!!!)
3) i have more books than shoes or clothes
4) My life swings between hyperactive and sloth days
5) I love chocolates, in fact they are my second religion,first being humour
6) i have seen all the ghost,thriller,sci-fi movies made so far( yes all of them )
7) more often than not you will find me all lost in my thoughts, something which makes people think i am a snob..but i am not..really really really not
Second award is Beautiful Blogger award by George W Mahn III
George is a kind generous soul and his blog is the place to visit if you like Discography,film scores,lyrics,music, poetry, in short a beautiful serene blog.
Now the nominations, please take note that I am nominating the following blogs for both the awards
if you have already received one of them you can choose to ignore it and go for the other one
or accept both again
