Then and Now: 15 Years Later


When I was down at my parents’ house on Saturday, I decided to snap a pic of the old photo on the left, which hangs on the fridge. I think that I was about 25-26 at the time … and relaxed. The picture on the right is from a couple of months ago at the age of 40 and natural. I had to share the side-by-side comparison, because I’m kind of psyched!! Neither my face nor my hair look much different between then and now … and there are about 14 to 15 years between the two pictures!! Not bad … not bad at all!!

Hmmmm .. maybe my hair density and curl hasn’t changed as much as I thought?? Well, this is just further motivation to smile and laugh a lot, let go of stress, eat well, drink plenty of water and exercise!! I may not always be consistent, but I always get back on track. Hopefully 15 years from now I’ll be able to do a another side-by-side comparison with the same results!!!

(p.s. Peep my Janet Jackson, “That’s the Way Love Goes,” choker! Yeah baby!! Had a cropped black suede vest too ;)!!)

(p.s.s. Rocked the Janet, “You Want This” braids too!! No, no … not the Poetic Justice braids …. these ones!!!)

C’mon!! I know that I’m ┬ánot the only one ;)!!
