Now more than ever, we’re recognising the importance of taking time to acknowledge progress…in all its forms.
The social media meme ‘how it started vs. how it’s going’ coined this trend for wholesome, light-hearted reflection, and we think it’s one that has the makings of being a continued source of positivity, moving forward.
Whether we’re reflecting on the trajectory of our work, relationships, or even our own mindset and physicality, the power of finding images to bookend these two points in time, is one that we can easily all leverage to our advantage.
Photos, after all, have a unique knack of showing up all the curves and crevices etched into normality by time, hard work and - very often - those split second, sliding-doors-moment decisions, that we don't see the significance of, until they have passed.
For this reason, pinning a 'before' and 'after' to the proverbial fridge door in our minds eye, can go a long way towards cultivating the motivation and gratitude that we all need, right now, to rise to the challenge of onwards and upwards… whatever that might look like!
📸 Not technically ‘how it started’ (this was 2009, and @healthy_magazine began in 2007!) but this moment, nonetheless, is a significant ‘bookend’ if ever we needed one!
