Failure could be daunting, but there are ways you could bounce back from a significant defeat. I am pretty sure everyone has experienced loss at some point in their lives, and we all know that the feeling of failure could be destructive to some level.

I can tell you what music I was listening to at any time of my life and what I was going through; it serves as a memory jar because every song I listen to has a story to tell about me. My love for music knows no bound or genre.
