I decided to sit down today and write a list of things I’m proud to have accomplished before my 30th birthday which was back in November. This post is not meant to toot my own horn. We all have that unique list, and I hope this inspires you to think about your accomplishments. Regardless of your age, it can be 40 before turning 40, 20 before turning 20 etc! 🙂
