I don’t know if this has always been happening but I noticed this year that a lot of people were sharing a summary of 2013 on Facebook around New Years. They’re usually a little “braggy” but honestly, I don’t mind that at all. I’m happy to celebrate all the wonderful things my friends have done or experienced this year and don’t feel particularly envious or annoyed. We are all on different paths.
I very much enjoyed reading a recap of 2013 through my friends’ eyes and decided it would be a good exercise to reflect back on the last 365 days myself.
As you might know, Ridejoy announced that it was no longer being supported – a decision that my cofounders and I made this spring, after months testing new ideas and soul-searching. It was a hard decision and marked the psychic end of my first startup.
But life goes on and I went on to have a wonderful year in 2013, which I shared on Facebook.
