Hailey Devine's Definition of Bona Fide


My house is upside down, I have bloodshot eyes from my baby that decided to sleep only two hours last night, and I have endless projects on my computer that must be done. This is my life. I try very hard to keep my feed positive, uplifting and REAL. I do not have any intention to portray that I have the "perfect" life -- I just choose to document and share the things that keep me going. The things that make me happy!

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.
