Bona-Fide: Genuine, Real

Everyday I scroll my Instagram, Twitter, & Bloglovin' feeds, and I find myself smacked in the face with these constant numbers. So-and-so has 597K followers, getting 27,000 likes per picture, and 800 comments. My first initial thoughts are, "Wow that's impressive, they must be pretty cool." - I'm sure that they are pretty cool, but I believe that the numbers are not what make a person "cool". At the end of the day, what do these numbers really matter?" The truth is that they don't matter at all, they are just numbers. Numbers don't define how insanely cool you are, & I think that realization is insanely cool. 
Let's join together, no matter how many 'numbers' we have, & try to be a little more Bona-Fide or 'insanely cool'. Compliment a stranger, mail a thoughtful note, & reach out to an old friend! THAT is what makes you insanely cool.

  2. I love this, Hailey! I posted something similar to this on my blog the other day. I just feel like that I compare myself to others too much, especially on social media. Social media isn't an accurate representation of who I really am, though. We need to cut ourselves some slack!

  3. You are a breath a fresh air! We all need to move past the numbers and enjoy what is most important, our individual success, no matter the magnitude!

  4. I so love this. As a new blogger I feel this way a lot and have to constantly remind myself that numbers are not important. I'm grateful for the connections I have made so far and am loving my journey in the blogging world! Thanks for sharing! I love stop motion. Anyone else a big claymation Gumby fan? Anybody?

    Xx, Cheree
