It’s hard to sum up in just a few words how the world has changed from 2009 to 2019, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try. 2020 is upon us in a matter of hours and that means a new decade to change things and become the people we were meant to be. But before we can grow into our new selves, it’s important to look back to see how far we’ve come—like our fave celebs.

A-listers have been posting about their greatest glow-ups and grow-ups and we are living for the side-by-side comparisons.

“Time sure does fly when you are having fun!!” Reese Witherspoon tweeted, using the hashtag #10yearchallenge, and looking at these side by side comparisons TBH, we can’t actually see a difference between 2009 Reese and 2019 Reese. Does she age? What sorcery is this? All we know is we need her fountain-of-youth recipe on our desk by 9 a.m.

Miley Cyrus has been in quite the reflective mood recently as she has put out several calls on her Twitter for fans to tag her in side-by-side comparisons. Some of them are uncanny. Sure, she still likes to wear her Hannah Montana denim (*cough* Canadian tuxedo), but boy does she sport it in a different way.

One thing is for certain, her use of her infamous tongue will apparently never go out of style. Here’s to seeing Miley’s tongue walk the walk and talk the talk into 2029!

Victoria Beckham stuck to more recent photos but was candid about her career glow-up writing, ” In 2000, I dreamed big and in 2019 I dared to dream even bigger,” followed by shout-outs to her fellow Spices and the whole Beckham crew. Kevin Hart encouraged followers to “close out 2019 with a positive mindset and move into 2020 with the attitude of simply being better”—advice we can all stand to follow (though his choice of photo would indicate he doesn’t really know when the decade started). Yara Shahidi posted a too-cute-for-words video of little Yara talking to PopStar about her 2009 movie Imagine That. Whoa. Time warp.

Selena Gomez has also had quite the decade with a “goodbye” to her Disney days, and “hello” to a record deal and executive producer credits on the hit 13 Reasons Why. She went from a cutie-patootie with pinchable cheeks to a fierce goddess to slayyy.

Director Ava DuVernay shared her amazing journey that has nothing to do with the way she looks and everything to do with how far she has come as a black woman in a male-dominated industry. She tweeted out a long, inspiring thread (worth reading in its entirety) about her first paying gig in 2010 as the director of a hip-hop doc, proving that if she can start there and receive an Academy Award nomination within the decade, then the sky’s the limit for everyone.

Before the holidays are over, Mariah Carey of course had to get in one last record-smasher, with “All I Want For Christmas.” The legend became the first artist to top Billboard’s Hot 100 in four separate decades. In response to the news, Mariah (who has a history of totally ignoring the concept of time) tweeted the best summary we can think of: “But . . . what’s a decade?”
