i look at myself in the photo,

not because i wish to look at myself,

but because i remember the doubt behind my smile,

the anxiety behind my eyes,

the questions that ran through my mind,

although I can’t detach myself from those feelings,

i discern the distance i’ve traveled.

    The progress we see can be in a very different direction to where we thought we’d end up. But the wonders we’ve seen, and the knowledge we’ve gleaned will be beautiful to behold. 💛
