Letting go…even just a piece will lighten your heart.


On my mind today as influenced by my own thoughts and comments from others. I am drafting the post which will go up tomorrow, but for today, I wish you all a deep cleansing breath and the ability to exhale and let go of some bit of stuff that hangs heavy on your heart.  Let downs with family, friends, relationships, colleagues, yourself…letting a little piece go can chip away at the bigger iceberg.

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon

    Letting go is essential to finding peace. It’s when we hang on to our old stories of how we think things should have been or ought to be that depression gains a foothold and moves in to stay. Thanks for this inspiring thought!

    That image is beautiful. Also, seeing the word “breath” reminded me to do just that, instead of responding to the increased busyness at work (in addition to an impending trip outside the office) by holding my breath and becoming increasingly more tense. Thanks to you, I’m thinking about my breathing and doing it closer to right. For now!

      I totally know the feeling and how it starts to spin…and you only get more tense! Keep breathing, one breath at a time and try not to let it get away from you…and good luck with all your preparations!
