April Goals

This is the first time I've done April Goals or any kind of goals post.

I’ve seen a few bloggers do this maybe accountability reasons and thought I should give it a go. Since I enjoy reading others, “Why not write/publish some of my own?”

Get healthy.

Spring is the beginning of all new things. Flowers bloom, the grass is greener, a brightness which ensues. After a rough start to 2014, I’m taking it in. Saying that the stress of life has interfered with my goal to be a healthy person. Sure I run, but the eating is out of control.

The goal here isn’t to do this or that to be healthy as much as it is to make healthier choices. I’m no longer going to restrict myself too much. I'm going to aim for more protein, fewer sugars, and drinking more water. Though I have debated about going vegan again. We'll see.

Connect offline.

Connecting online hasn’t been a problem. I’ve “met” some amazing people, introduced others, overall, expanded my network and set for some upcoming new ventures on that end.

But I have to move offline and go to mixers and mingle with people to make local connections (that social anxiety though. Drink please?). It’ll do me good, just have to put on my big girl panties and do it.

Go away social anxiety, even if it's just a little bit.

Take more photos.

The design portion has been amazing, but the photo part has been lacking (except any projects/work I’ve done on the blog). I miss taking photos, not on my phone, so alas, I need to get out there and shoot some things.

I haven't decided what the subjects will be: nature, friends, buildings, but I need to get back to finding my style in photography.

Dabble in video/vlogging.

Video is a great way for you to reach your audience, no matter what you do. As much as I want to start, I have this fear of people hating my face and my voice. “My voice doesn’t sound that great on video.” Pulling myself up by my bootstraps, I'll set up my tripod and figure out what I’m going to do a video on. A recipe? New DIY? Who knows? I'd like to have a niche so there's a reason for people to watch said videos when they're complete. Whatever I decide, you’ll get a kick out of it. :)

So those are my April Goals, what are yours? I'd love to know in the comments!

Until next time,
