Hitting rock bottom means the next step leads upwards

When I wrote my last blog post (on my now defunct old blog) 2,5 years ago I was in a very good spot. “2015 — the year of (personal) growth” read the cheerful headline. I was in great physical shape and looking forward to an exciting time at the company I co-founded. I could not have foreseen what was going to happen over the next two years. Not to spoil this blog post early, but in the end the time was about personal growth after all, just in a very unexpected and different way.
