Out on a Limb, An Intersection in Life.


1) She doesn’t get eaten by the eel at this time. 2) WHAT!? 1) I’m explaining to you because you look nervous. 1)I’m not nervous. Well, maybe I was a bit…concerned but that’s not the same thing.” ~The Princess Bride

Today, I am so excited and a bit “concerned’ (not nervous see above:)) as I am really putting myself out there today with my VERY first guest post for a lovely woman named Jessica, who has a great blog called “The Spit Up Chronicles.”  Having spent 2 years dealing with E’s and Q’s extreme reflux, I felt right at home as soon as I landed there, and I started reading Jessica’s musings on the world around her and us.  After I nestled in a bit I reached out to her to discuss her “Meet my Neighbor” series which I thoroughly enjoyed, and we agreed that she would graciously host me on her wonderful blog.

As you may have garnered in one of my past posts “Never say Never, because you just Never Know,” you know I have been confronting some very serious decisions related to the care of my minis and my career.  Today in my post “Out on a Limb” I have come to some pretty serious and life changing realizations. So I hope you will please take the time to wander over and give it a read, help me down from my mild anxiety attack up on my limb, and say hello to the lovely Jessica.

Thank you again Jessica for hosting me, I feel quite at home here:) http://www.spitupchronicles.com/

Happy ‘newfavoriteday’ everyone!

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
