Social media can be a fun a place, and all the challenges one takes on social media are a way to bind the wide web universe on social media platforms. Take for instance, the #10YearChallenge that’s been exploding the internet.
It is also being used with hashtags like #HowHardDidAgingHitYou and ##GlowUp (to show how well you have aged), and #2009Vs2019 which explains the #10YearChallenge — post your picture from 10 years ago (2009) with one from 2019 to show how you have changed.
Who started it?
Can one ever track the origin of such challenges? The answer mostly is, no! It is unclear who started it but clearly everyone is enjoying it and has been used a million times.

Giving into the current trend of #2009vs2019 🗓 2009: I completed my 12th grade and was superrrr excited to begin my dream grad course – My Bachelors In Mass Media 👩🎓 Went to Goa for the first time in my life! My girl gang and I spent 5 days between the pools and beaches (and a couple of moms who didn’t let us travel alone yet hehe) 🏊🏼♀️ I had a crush on a REALLY silly guy through most of this year 🤦🏽♀️ (haven’t we all, at some point?) I also started freelancing as a content writer for the first time and didn’t even realise how I started working towards the goal of getting more into content production ✨ Towards the end of the year, I won my college and semi rounds and went on to be a finalist for Miss Bombay Times Fresh Face (which I went on to win in early 2010) 🏆 2019: it’ll be my second wedding anniversary soon, my fifth dating anniversary in a couple of months (yes we still remember and celebrate that one ☺️), our one year first home anniversary, and hopefully my 100k YouTube milestone 🥳 What else? Well, a few others that we’re planning but I won’t tell yet 😉 – In between these 10 years there’s been highs but there’s also been a LOT of lows! As happy and grateful I am for the glow and grow up, please know that what me – and everyone else – is saying on this series of posts isn’t EVERYTHING! Let’s acknowledge the imperfections of our lives and appreciating them while also giving thanks for how far we’ve all come 🙏🏼 Don’t let social media feeds tell you otherwise. We’re ALL in the same boat 🚣♀️ – #ThisIsThatLife #Blessed #10yearchallenge
