Before and after pictures are something we all dream of having. We want to see a huge difference no matter what the picture entails. These before and after pictures will give you hope for whatever you are dreaming of. Never give up.
1) Just A Little Rain
Sometimes, things look grim. But all it takes is a little rain and sunshine to turn things around. This is Australia five months apart after the rain brightened things up again. Isn’t it beautiful?
2) She’s The Ugly One
This kitten was supposedly never adopted because she was the “ugly” one, which sounds ridiculous. She’s adorable, but I guess her siblings had silky fur and deep green eyes. But now? She is definitely the model of the family.
3) Still Going Strong
This is a relationship that is lasting. These pictures were taken 40-years apart and it seems to me that they feel the same about each other as they always did. Their love only grows each year.
4) The Kids Are Even Cuter
This couple went to the same pre-school. Not they are all grown up and have children of their own. Their kids are even more adorable than they were, just look at their sweet smiles. Now this is a cute love story.
5) It Was A Long Road
Three generations in two pictures. Here we have a man holding his son as a newborn. Fast-forward and we see that son holding the man’s grandson. Let’s hope they keep the tradition for generation to come.
6) Happy 112th
The picture on the left is Mr. Overton as he served in WWII. On the right we have Mr. Overton at 112-years-old. He was a handsome young man and now he’s a happy older gentleman. He was once the oldest living male in the United States.
7) The Longest Game Of Chess
Here we have Arnold Schwarzenegger and his bodybuilding buddy playing chess for fifty years. This is a friendship that lasts. Arnold was the reason Franco Columbu got his acting roles early on.
8) Even The Cat Is There
Ten year time lapses are the best. In this case, we see that not much has changed. This family is still as loving and as cuddly as ever. Everyone is aging well, especially that dog, look at that lovely coat.
9) Good Job Painting The Shelf Too
Not only did they paint the shelf white, a becoming color on it, but they polished their antique spoon collection to perfection. This grandma hand-picked the spoons thirty years ago and now they are thriving.
10) Ohio State Is Looking Good
Sometimes, technology takes over, and sometimes, we do the right thing and enhance the natural beauty around us. This is Ohio State University after they created pathways that the students voted on.
11) Castaway To Celebrity
This guy went from looking like Tom Hanks in Castaway to Sean Maguire. He could definitely play a mean Robin Hood better than a castaway that talks to a volleyball. But who are we to choose his career path?
12) That Van Is Invincible
The day that this family bought their van in 1999 and then again twenty years later. The second picture is the day that they sold it. Do you think it was worth more then or now? This reminds me of This is Us!
13) Find A Barber You Trust
This man ahs been going to the same barber shop for thirty years. As you can see, nothing much has changed expect the barber has upgraded his glasses. When you find someone you trust, never let them go.
14) Never Give Up On Renovations
If you think your home needs a bit of renovating, just look at this and try not to feel overwhelmed. This vintage home is amazing, but it didn’t look like there was much hope for it. But all it took was a little TLC!
15) The Power Of Rehab
This poor kitty named Benben had been near death when he was found. Though he still si short an ear, it’s nothing that his bright eyes can’t make up for. This cat was saved and he shows his appreciation daily.
16) It Was 3D Printed
This toucan has a loving owner who 3D-printed him a beak that looks even better than the original. It is functioning and sleek. Though I think his owner looks even happier than he does!
17) She Was Pretty, Now She’s A Model
Is it just me or does this gorgeous queen look insanely familiar? Is she secretly a celebrity because that’s what it looks like to me. All she did was lose 40lbs, and hopefully found happiness along the way.
18) He Beat It
What is this, you may ask. Well, this is five years cancer-free! The best before and after that anyone could hope for. While some want to lose weight and others want their relationships to last, some just want their loved ones to survive.
19) He’s A Happy Dog Now
Look at those sad eyes and tell me you wouldn’t adopt him. This dog is a happy one now that he is happy with his new family. His name is Koda Bear and it suits him perfectly. The little teddy!
20) He Keeps Outgrowing His Shell
This snail had to go through so many shells in just a few months time. Do you think he’ll ever stop growing or we’ll we have another Clifford the Big Red Dog on our hands soon? Let’s hope not!
21) Two Hours Apart
These two were taken two hours apart. It’s Michigan at 9am and Michigan at 11am when the fog clears. It just goes to show you that you can’t judge the way your day is going to go from what happens at 9am.
22) They Glowed Up Good
This kid and his pupper were adorable. But they grew up great! They make such a handsome pair and are always by each other’s side. You can tell they share a strong connection. The dog is fifteen-years-old!
23) Have You Seen A More Beautiful Pair?
Here we have another sweet pair. They have been together for twenty-two years and that’s just amazing. Most cats are lucky to see fifteen and this one may break a record and hit forty!
24) Ten Year Challenge
Here we have a lovely couple of teens at prom and ten years later, we see them getting married. Now that’s a sweet love story that we see often, yet it never gets old. When you find the one, you keep them.
25) That’s A Long Bike Ride
The top picture shows Kreuzberg in 1985, and the bottom pictures shows it in 2018. The guy in the bike is the same one. Do you think this was planned or a chance meeting with serendipity?
26) His Name Is Johnathan
This tortoise is named Johnathan. He was born in 1832 and is now 188-years-old. That’s older than any living human! He’s one of the oldest beings on the planet which is super crazy to think about.
27) Best Friends Forever
When you find a friendship that lasts through the decades, you’ve been given one of life’s greatest treasures. Family has a hard enough time staying together, but these two are sharing water.
28) Apple Upgrade
Imagine it’s 1976, and a young man named Steve Jobs has a little house down the street from you. You don’t think much of him and his Apple business. But it’s not long until he will have a multi-billion dollar company.
29) She Did Say Yes
This is where they took their first trip and it was where he proposed five years later. He is a smart man, a very smart man. Not every man would think of that but he knew how to win her over.
30) Never Stop Drawing
This is why you should never give up on your dreams or hobbies. This is a Labrador commission four years ago, and this is one from last year. Every year, the artist gets better, because they never stop drawing.
31) He Will Always Love Her
This is an eighteen-year relationship that will surely last a lifetime more. The two have always been insperable. If his note of her being the “most excellent kid” is any indication, that is.
32) Sad Eyes No More
Those sad eyes got turned into gleeful eyes when he was adopted. Now he can run, he’s well-fed, and most of all, he’s loved. All dogs need is to feel loved and they will surely prosper.
33) Circle Of Life
This dude does The Lion King reenactment every single year with his cat. She was a cute kitty before and now we get to see her grow up. Let’s hop there are many, many more of these to come.
34) Who Has Grown More?
These photos were taken 17-years apart. The kid was happy to have a tiny turtle he could hold in his hand. Now look at him. Pretty soon, the turtle will outgrow him! Maybe he’ll live as long as Johnathan.
35) It’s Never Too Late
This momma got cleaned up years ago. Here she is ten years ago and now. She looks perfectly glaming and happy to finally have taken her life back. It’s never too late to take charge, people.
36) Never Saw It Coming
Who saw this coming? Probably no one but their parents who noticed how close they always were. They met in second grade and they are still together! What a sweet pair they make! Do you think they are “just friends”?
37) Literally, The Same Car
After abandoning their home during the Chernobyl disaster, these two brothers found their toy car in Pripyat thirty years later. Now that’s quite a story! Weren’t they adorable little guys?
38) Embrace The Greys
A year before this gorgeous hair was captured by this photo, she shaved her head. She looked adorable both ways but her hair is growing in nicely. Even with the stray grays blending in.
39) How Time Has Changed Things
This is how technology has changed. This is his phone when he was a teenager and his mom’s phone when she was one. Isn’t that crazy? Time changes things. Good thing his mom has gotten an upgrade.
40) Still A Sweet Kitty
She sure was a sweet kitty but now she’s a sweet cat. Look at those big old eyes that haven’t changed. After all these years, this is still her favorite spot. Maybe she’s a fan of music? Let her choose the beats.
