Summer Snapshots 2015

“When looking back doesn’t interest you anymore, you’re doing something right.”

So many negative connotations are attached to the act of looking back. It’s encouraged to “never look back” and just look to the future, keep your eyes forward. However, I find much value, and even healing, in looking back and reflecting.

This past summer flew by in a blink. I immediately transitioned into school, work, grad apps, etc. without so much as a goodbye to the past 3 months.

This reminded me of the way I eat. It sounds silly, but I am a fast eater. Friends, family, and boyfriend have repeatedly said things like, “Slow down and ENJOY your food” or “How can you savor the food if you eat so fast?” Nothing they’ve said has ever changed my eating pace – sorry, guys – but the concept of slowing down has resonated with me lately. My life is a constant green light, always going 10-15mph above the speed limit. The act of looking back on the adventures and activities of this summer, gathering representative photos, and writing this post has made my heart full. Full of gratitude, joy, and a deep sense of contentment. Going through my summer photo albums have reminded me of precious moments that had already slipped my mind.

Here are my selected Summer Snapshots:
