(Me. Feeling you guessed it – more than enough)
As a society, in the west especially, we are very much taken with the idea that bigger is better.
We have traditionally always aspired to have more.
In the age of social media we look for more followers, more likes, more comments.
A friend of mine recently asked me how I felt about my blog not having alot more comments and likes, which she felt it was worthy of.
I told her it did not matter to me in the slightest.
Here is why:
I am already doing what I set out to do, that is all the ‘like’ and commentary I need.
Though I obviously do enjoy when someone feels moved to ‘like’ or comment on a post, I know that whoever read the post in the first place received what they needed from it, and that is what is important to me.
I hold the intention with every post I write, that whoever reads it will receive from it what they need.
It’s OK, you don’t have to provide feedback, unless you feel called to.
I have already received it energetically, and I Thank You for that exchange 🙂
That level of confidence can come across at best unnerving, and at worst arrogant.
Some people would have a hard time understanding that even if just one person read or interacted with this blog ever – I would still be doing my job.
A community I am part of was talking about originality vs authenticity recently.
Sometimes in the striving for originality we miss out on the pleasure of authenticity.
Being original might get you more of a following. Being authentic gives you peace.
Re-emerging into the world after lock-down is an interesting process for me.
I am coming to understand even more that measurements mean very little.
I know I am exactly where I am supposed to be, doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing, and that is simply and gloriously more than enough.
Thank you again for being here, simply your presence is also more than enough.
