In fact, they don't even look like the same person to me; definitely related, but not the same person. And I guess, in a way, that's the reality. Aren't we ever-evolving?
The girl on the left has no idea that she's going to move across the country. In fact, she can't even imagine her husband finishing school. She's obsessed with her new blog. She dreams of writing for a living. She is deathly afraid of dogs. She tucks her kids into bed each night.
The girl on the right writes for a living, struggles to maintain her blog, is in love with the east coast, and dreams of finishing a novel. Not only does she own a dog, she frequently talks in sugary, baby talk to larger dogs. She keeps losing the same five pounds over and over again, but needs to lose 15. She tucks her kids into bed each night.
And what about the girl four years from now? What is she doing? Where has she been? Is she still tucking those kids in? Did she finish that novel? And most importantly, what does her hair look like?
Who were you four years ago?
