There is no such thing as Superwoman…

Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Earlier this week, we took a trip back in time to “Before I was a Mother, I was a Daughter.”   We talked about foundations, and how those moments of childhood and the struggles that followed, were the moments that set me up for success in my greatest role now, a mother to my twins.

We all have these moments, whether they are related to motherhood, or our roles as daughters, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, employees, colleagues, bosses, teachers, therapists, house managers, financial controllers, pet owners, whatever.  These moments, and the choices we make in these moments, give us the opportunity to be our best in the next moment.

People often ask me, how I do all that I do.  While I do think it is a lot, I also think it is probably not too much, if any more, than what so many other people and mothers do each day.  My circumstances and execution are different, but many of us are so busy there is just no way to understand or comprehend how we actually get it all done.

Today, as I was l out shopping for cape, I realized there just weren’t any in my size….

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

  2. Transitioning Mom Says:

    Here’s a little secret…When I see that you have added a new post, I brew myself a fresh cup of coffee, tell the kiddos I’m “unavailable” , and get comfy to “really read” your posts. I always feel like I’ve had a pep-talk with a dear friend. Thanks!

    (Oh, and shared the Shine page on both of my FB pages because when I find something good, my mama taught to share it with my friends. 🙂 )

      I so love this, thank you! You brighten my day and to give me this gift of your ritual is lovely and thoughtful and gives me such inspiration. The sharing part as you know is so awesome and our mamas taught us the same…which probably clarifies why we get along so well!:)
