Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready, Set, Live.

We are always getting ready to live, but never living” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ready for anything, but always ready to live.

Within this smile, is a spirit that is in fact living and ready for anything that comes its way. Little E inspires me everyday to look at things differently, to remind myself and others that you need not do anything monumental each day to make it special, that simply living life is a milestone in itself.

It’s these little reminders that help make today and everyday ‘anewfavoriteday.’ What little things remind you that today you can relish in a living moment rather than always preparing to live your life. A cup of coffee, a friendly hello from a colleague, the smile of your mini(s), the kiss of someone you love? I would love to know as your comments inspire me as well!

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

    This picture just helped make my day! Truly. One of the sweetest things in my daily life, and the one that always reminds me to get back into my day, is my son’s love of his tricycle. Every day he is so excited to ride it–even just a block to the car–I’m reminded to try seeing the world a little more like he does!
