It is amazing how a milestone can motivate you to action.

For me, it was my 29th birthday.  I realized that I had just one short year before my 30’s.

I was holding on to significant weight from pregnancy and childbirth.  I was questioning where I was heading professionally.  I wondered what was next for my family.

And I spent significant time soul searching, journaling, interviewing friends and colleagues, re-envisioning my life, and putting in some hard work to make changes.

As I turn 31 this week, I can’t help but reflect on that 29th birthday.  How I focused my efforts throughout a year to reach goals in all areas of life (spiritually, physically, professionally, and relationally).

Do you have a milestone motivator?  Tell me about it!
