Reminding me and you that we deserve the best…but what it means to you is up to you.


A thought for the day....you deserve happiness. My favorite part is the part where it says, "we all find it in different things"...what's your thing?

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

    thanks for sharing, S…

    this morning it came in the picture of my kids on my cell phone. it was 10:15, and after a long night of no sleep and horrible nightmares when i did, i dind’t want to wake for the day officially. i was once again faced with this all too familiar feeling of numbness for the day. with the casual glance at the phone to see how many emails had stacked up over the morning, i first had to look at my screen image – my two kids smiling at me. i had to literally tell myself they were the reason it was time to get out of bed and begin functioning. and so i did. today i found the love in my babies’ smiles. so blessed to have that reminder on these tougher than usual mornings.

      Pink, I am so glad you found that picture on your phone and were able to let that fill you up and get you up. The “numbness” can be so hard, and you are so strong for making the choice to let that picture lift you up out of bed and for the day. Big hugs to you…I know you will keep finding it…and keep that pic on your phone…I find that my phone wallpaper gives me similar inspiration at times…what did we do before cell phone photos?:)
