Goals for 2019

Happy New Year family! I do hope that you enjoyed your NYE and you’re feeling good about the possibilities that 2019 are offering. I’m not a big fan of resolutions but I do always think about the things that I would like to accomplish in a year.  When I think about 2019, my theme is to master what I have and to do a few things that scare me. My list is pretty long but I wanted to share a few things on it.

1.) Grow my platforms- I guess this is a year-to-year given but in 2018 I feel like I’ve done a bit of the groundwork to really grow more. I think it’l be a good year for growing.

2.) Do a boudoir shoot- This is something that terrifies me because I am suuuppeerr self-conscious. I plan on letting one of my photographer friends do my pictures and I’m going to try and channel something other than awkward.

3.) Master my photo and video style- I built a photo and video  kit that I am comfortable with (and even excited about). Now I’m starting to put the time into learning how to get the most out of them. In 2019, I plan to do more of this until I can work the most efficiently and easily. 

4.) Go skydiving- I have wanted to do this but I have just not carved out the time or the money for it. This year I am going to take the leap (no pun, lol).

5.) Streamline my content production- I guess this is similar to mastering my equipment. I want to be more efficient because time is not something I always have a lot of but I still need to get things accomplished. 

6.) Host more wellness retreats- This is a slow process but it is something that I really enjoy. This year more of those. Maybe with you 🙂 

7.) Come up with a health regimen that I can keep up- Y’all pray for me on this. I did the ketogenic diet successfully this year and I liked it but it also meant that I ate meat (well chicken) again. It was really hard to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle on keto while also not cooking frequently. I do want to go back to being vegetarian with the occasional seafood. 

8.) Minimize my things- I don’t claim to be a minimalist but I have felt super incumbered by things and I feel cluttered mentally because of it. So I do want to go more minimal with my belongings, my wardrobe, and get more organized. 

9.) Increase my work as a writer- I love to write. It is part of the reason I started the blog. I also have to write for a living. Last year I made a commitment to doing more recreational writing so that I would not lose energy to finish my dissertation. It has helped and I’ve been publishing on blogs and completing short stories (2 this year!). It has ignited a fire for me to keep going, eventually publishing bigger project.

What are your goals for 2019? Please share.

Love and Light.
