When someone asks about my year, an overwhelming feeling of anxiety falls over me. I immediately think of all the failures and mistakes that transpired. I sulk about the jobs that I lost or perhaps the connections with whom I never followed up. But, just as soon as I start dwelling on the missteps, a blast of positive reflection and extreme anticipation hits me like 10-ton a freight truck. I... READ MORE
