Friday is “My Favorite Day.”

April 6, 2012


Just a little something short and sweet for Friday.  I have needed to take some down time as of late as between work, preparing the minis for school on Monday, minis and the whole family getting sick, and fundraising, I have been tired, emotionally raw and a little overwhelmed.

BUT, then today a wonderful Facebook page called “Paying it Forward ~ One Day at a Time” posted this on my Facebook page and it lit me up inside.  It speaks volumes and I had never seen it before, so between the fact that it’s Pooh (who we all know I love) and it’s so inline with “MyNewFavoriteDay” I am sharing it here with you.

I hope you know that I do feel this way most days, because I am oh so lucky to be alive, have my family, have wonderful friends, have amazing readers and wonderful folks who interact with me here and on “MyNewFavoriteday” facebook page.  All of you amaze me with your kindness and this is just one example of what it can mean to someone to  give a little kindness Just Because. I hope that today some of my kind feelings toward you, warms your heart and  makes today ‘yournewfavoriteday, ‘ just because it’s today.

“What day is it?” said Pooh
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.

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

    I love Winnie the Pooh. It represents the sweetest parts of childhood and children and innocence and a more simple way of life. Thanks for sharing!

    That’s just wonderful! There’s another Pooh quote I love so very much, “If you live to 100, I want to live to 100 minus 1 so I never have to live a day without you.” Happy Easter! Take good care of you!

    I am reading this on Saturday, the day I have set aside to get caught up on the blogs I’ve missed reading, and this was such a lovely place for me to start my catch up of your blog. It oozes “Shannon” and just made me smile.

    I hope you are all feeling better and that the minis first day on Monday goes well–for ALL of you.

    Now, off to read your other posts. I’ve missed reading you! xo
