I will readily admit that I spend WAY too much time on the internet, specifically tumblr. (Follow me on tumblr here) One of my favorite images is this, which is a time lapse photo of hundreds of sunsets.
Not only is it a beautiful image, but it also perfectly exemplifies the nostalgic looking back over time. The picture shows how little we take notice of our progress and growth until we look back and see how far we’ve come.
Growth is positive, even if it feels hard at the time. Progress is noteworthy and beautiful. And if you’re in the middle of trying to make yourself into something new, different or better somehow, look at this image and remind yourself how important those goals are.
