Are first anniversaries more significant than the following ones?
In a way, yes. During the first year, you don’t know what you’re doing. You’re learning all the time. You find out which of your expectations are on the money (not all that many) and you discover stuff you’d never have imagined. You find out if you can do this.
And maybe the highs seem higher, the lows lower in this first year-long roller coaster ride?
From now on, you’ve been there before. You have a history. You’re not the rookie anymore.
