Had an older photo up for my page before... It cane from a time I was at my lowest weight in almost 10 years, I was in a broken relationship and fighting for crumbs, my job had become toxic for me after conflicts with my boss and just having very different ways to approach things... I was miserable emotionally and physically.
Financially OK, but it became very clear that is the least important of the 3.
So I changed it to this recent one, where I'm at a healthy weight, stronger than I've ever been, healthy as, incredibly fulfilled with my work and my direction in it.
No intimate relationship as such, but amazing relationships all around me with incredibly good hearted peoplet that line up with me.
Just incredible what happens when you change the people around you.
And I just want to emphasise, the people previously were not bad people, I don't think there is such a thing... they were just incredibly different to me. Very different focus, very different than ideals that works well for them... just not for me.
Purely a fundamental difference in who we are, and it's better for them I'm not there and it's better for me I'm not there.
Just so grateful to my students, people volunteering in the circles I'm lucky enough to be in, as well and all my incredible mentors that are giving me incredible information to help me move forward and no doubt saving me years and years in the process.
Just super grateful and so happy to see the change in myself.
I believe photos hold so much more than an image... they truely freeze time, and it can be scary to see emotional states at different stages in your life, but they're always great lessons if you choose to let them be that way.
Might be a good opportunity to look at a photo of you 12 months ago, 5 years ago and ask the questions:
Have I been moving in the direction I want my life to go in?
Is what I've been doing making me happy?
What change can I make NOW to move me close to my dreams, faster?
