Celebrate being “Youer than you.”

Blog, Children, Fun, Happiness, Inspiration, Life, Quotes

Just a little thought for the day.  A little tired lately from juggling life as all of us run at 800 mph trying to do whatever it is we feel we want, need, should do.  So today, just a happy little thought that hopefully help make it ‘yournewfavoriteday.’  Have a great day and take this moment as you read these words to smile, let your heart give you a warm hug and let the air out of your lungs and know I celebrate you all everyday. Thanks for always helping to make it ‘mynewfavoriteday’ too!

Celebrate you today.

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 the smiles, Shannon! To be honest, i see more of Addie in me every day and it freaks me out!! 🙂 Let’s hope she only keeps the good parts and gets rid of those tiny moments that make me cringe with the realization of the mini-me we created!! On a more serious note, i do want to put this quote on my kids’ mirror to remind them every day of how great their own darn self is and to not be lured down the road of wanting to be like someone else. Love it – thanks for sharing!!

      Thanks so much Trace. This is a blessing you know for Addie’s mommy (you) is a beautiful loving soul who thinks about things like this and thinks about putting quotes like this up her and Cole’s rooms to remind them just how special they are everyday no matter what they are doing or where they are. You are an inspiration yourself my dear. xoxo
