We are now a full month into the new year! I hope it’s been an exciting, productive and adventurous one for you already. I am excited to share with you that there is a wonderful change coming to LisaShawCares, LLC that I believe will be a benefit to my friends, visitors and clients. I am having a complete make-over done to my website. That includes the entire website — branding, content offered, weekly newsletters, updated blog posts on various topics, courses, downloads, and more!
Happy New Year! Yes, I know it’s September and nope I didn’t have too much Hot Chai Tea Latte nonfat with an extra pump of chai this morning. There’s a reason for my happy new year greeting so hang with me please. We often wait until January 1st to begin to plan what we will do for that year. People begin to think about releasing weight January 1st but don’t have a plan to do it and before you know it, it’s March, June, December and January is here again. Others say they want to get out of debt in the new year and beginning in January they are going to pay off the bills, but they don’t have an action plan and suddenly it’s June and then end of year and no action was taken toward getting out of debt. There are numerous areas where people have good intentions to start something in January and end up frustrated by December because they didn’t set themselves up to succeed in advance. We’ve all been there right?

I found it interesting to watch him looking straight ahead fixed on an object in front of him and then he’d look around searching the surroundings. I wondered what he was thinking. It appeared that he was studying something in the distance as if he were determining what he was going to do next. Suddenly, he took off and flew high above our cul-de-sac and landed in a taller tree across the street as if he needed a higher level to view his surroundings and make his plans.
