Are you the type of person that is looking back a lot, rather than looking forward? I rarely catch myself reminiscing about the past, except for this special time of the year. It’s the one time I allow myself reflecting over the past year, things that have happened, friends I made and moments I will remeber forever.
The following sumary is a collection of the most successful stories, determined by clicks on the article, facebook reach, likes on facebook, and number of shares. I hope you enjoyed reading my posts as much as it brought joy to me writing them! I want to thank every single one of you who recommended reading Yokemara to your friends and peers. It has been a dream of mine since a very long time to create a space for an open dialogue about things that matter to me or to offer a platform to amazingly talented people and let them tell their side of their personal success story. Creating transparency has always been another force that has driven me to do what I’m doing. Questioning standards and reflecting over habits in order to grow as a person.
Another reason why it makes me really happy that after over one year of more or less constant writing, I felt really comfortable in talking to you guys and sharing my honest opinions with you! Let’s continue our journey together in 2016 and I’ll promise to work even harder to keep you informed and entertained!
Here are your most popular stories of 2015 in no paticular order! Roll it!
