Brilliant guest post by my dear friend Erin of Well In LA– are you ready to get inspired!!!?? Enjoy!
My milestone birthday is lurking on the horizon. By lurking, I mean 11 months down away. I’ve been inspired to make a very fun countdown by the lovely Kate. I wanted a unique way to celebrate the number 30 my way. To date in my life I’ve focused on balancing things, dabbling in writing every other day or meditation a few times a week. But I’ve never really immersed myself in something completely, every day, for more than a couple of weeks at a time. I want to shake up year #29 and try immersion (thanks, Nicole for the intro), to test the theory that intensely focusing on one thing produces the best results. If I do 30 days of yoga, will my heels finally touch the mat? Will 30 days of green juices and no coffee make me a lean, green non-caffeine machine? How much gratitude can I squeeze into each day with intense focus? I’m ready for a healthy dose of challenges and variety in the months leading up to the big 3-0!
Below are the challenges I’ve set out for myself. Stay tuned to my blog for mid-month and end of month updates on the progress, not to mention the tools I’ll be using to support myself as posted to Facebook and Twitter.

My 30th Birthday: May 30th, 2013. My plan is to outline the “rules” for the 30 days on the 1st of each month and share a weekly update & overall progress/feelings about the 30 days.

Good luck to each and every one of you celebrating a big milestone or challenge in your life! And if you’re headed for a big birthday, I challenge you to tackle the year in a big, celebrate your life sort of way!
