In an attempt to make myself feel better about my self induced thin ends (can we say "cry baby"? LOL) I decided to review some of my old hair pictures. If you feel silly about taking pictures of your hair, this is exactly why pictures are helpful. You can always look back, be proud about your progress, and motivate yourself to keep going.
Here's a picture of my hair on September 14, 2004. This is when I officially started taking care of my hair and my goal was to gain length and thickness.

Here's a picture of my hair at waist length in November 2009. This is the longest my hair has ever been. Keep in mind that I've suffered numerous setbacks and was constantly trimming to gain thickness.
Five years may be a long time, but guess what? Five years are going to pass regardless of what we do. I hope this serves as an inspiration for those of you who are just starting out. If I can do it, so can you.
Where will your hair be in 5 years?
