Why I hate Before & After Pics

So...I hate (strongly dislike) before and after pictures. I am sure the main reason is some deeply held trauma that only therapy could solve.... but today I am only thinking of ONE reason.

I feel like I am always in a state of growth, always searching for the next upgrade, the next idea, the next goal, the next dream...I am always in progress. I don't believe that there will ever be a day that I sit back and think...I am in the AFTER. This is it. I'm done. I made it..

I will always want more...

Okay, I lied...I have TWO reasons why I hate before and after pictures...

I also believe that we are perfect and enough just the way we are. This may seem like a total flip from what I said above... just hear me out.

We can be enough AND still be going after dreams. We can be perfect just the way we are AND have an amazing imagination; always looking for the next upgrade. We can be totally grateful for our current life AND have goals and dreams.

It is not and either/or for me.... I am not in the Before or in the After. I am In PROGRESS!!

Always in progress.

XO,

Mari
