I like 'likes'

I have a confession....I like getting likes.

You know the little thumbs up right under a Facebook post or a double tap on my latest Insta pic....I like it.

I realize that I am not 'supposed' to care how many likes I get. Or how many followers I have. Or if I get a 'share' once a year. To care about all of that would be vain and superficial and not appropriate for a 37 year old.

But I do.

Sometimes I wish that I didn't, but this is my confession.

I care that what I put out to the world is seen because...

...I want to make an impact.

...I want to be an inspiration.

...I want the feedback.

...I want the encouragement.

...I want the reinforcement.
