We’re always being asked to calculate. Calculate things.
Things like our happiness, for example. We shouldn’t base it on items or anything tangible, but on experiences, and people, as the exception. Or our value as people. That’s a big one too, isn’t it?
How many times have you been told to stop basing your worth on your success, or your looks, or anything fleeting or uncertain?
These are reflections of our deepest fears, and ways we try and go about answering our biggest questions: can I be loved? Am I enough?
I started out as a blogger three years ago. Yes, I’ve had this site for a long time, but I couldn’t work out what I wanted to do with it, or whether it was even possible for me to create something that people will want to come back to. Because honestly, a like button means nothing. I’d rather have genuine, real life likes. That’s what infinitelyadaydreamer is about: growth, humour, and story telling. I am so blessed to be able to create and share my words with you. I’ve learnt a lot about myself through this period of evolution, and I can say with 100% certainty that if I could, I’d lap life up and just keep going. But small milestones are great too, and they’re reminders to never stop pursuing what makes us truly happy.
So this is a big thank you to 202 (!!) people who cared enough to make my blogging journey theirs too, and also to the countless others who read my posts/ liked/ commented. You all have a special place in my heart, and I cannot express how grateful I am for everything. Your encouraging words and the priceless friendships I’ve made on this site.
This is what I calculate my worth in now.
Anything and everything that adds to me as a person, and blooms with me.
Not numbers, or likes, or views.
But they’re nice too.
