World traveler Shonda Scott loves cuddling up with ‘Rico,’ her Bull-Terrier (Pit Bull Bred) when she is not traveling abroad.

The creator of the popular 12 New Things™️  Life Journey Challenge resonating with so many – shared these heart-warming photos of she and ‘Rico.’ with us at Sheen Magazine.

Scott, the brainchild of 12 New Thing™️ Challenge said, ‘I’ve had Rico since birth, and we are going 6 years strong.” “He has won over the hearts of all my friends with his affectionate nature when my family and friends visit me at home.”

When asked about what led her to start the 12 New Things™️ Challenge, Scott says, “What started as a goal of 5, spring-boarded into thousands deciding to join the challenge with me to make an on-going lifestyle change.”

As part of her birthday celebrations in 2019, she created the 12 New Things™️ campaign, to do something new and different each month for a year, forcing her out of her comfort zone and embracing change in a fun, positive way. 

12 New Things™️ has now become a lifestyle of evolution and renewal for her and others.

Challenging yourself is one of the most important aspects of self-growth. Without challenge and change, there can be no progress or improvement.

“We often talk about things that we want out of life, things we dream about, and that’s where it ends – with us talking about it. We’re not always willing to challenge ourselves, to step out of our comfort zone and actually make things happen. Change and challenge, doing things that scare or intimidate us might seem difficult, but it doesn’t have to be,” Shonda added.
