Goooo Shayy!! :D xD I'm from Washington State and I came to this site just to see the story on the Shaytards! Shay and Colette are such an enormous inspiration to me. I suffer from anxiety and depression, and Shay's motto "Happiness is a choice." has really become my motto as well. When I'm at my lowest, it gets me through the days. When I'm exhausted from eight long hours of walking all day on the hard floors of Walmart doing returns, I remember that once Shay had nothing, and now he is something. Once, he and Colette were unhappy, but now they've learned to live such a happy life. They keep my head held high. I also look at them as a stencil for how to be a parent myself. My parents were not always there for me- custody battles and running away marks my childhood. Shay and Colette are the ones teaching me how to be a good, understanding, yet strong parent. I gave birth to my very first child, a daughter, eight months ago at the age of 19. Shay has been such an inspiration to me, I named my only daughter "Avia." Needless to say, she's named after Princesstard, Shay's oldest daughter. I don't want to seem like a creep for naming my child after her but... Really... Shay and Colette have a big hand in who I am becoming as a person. Thank you, you guys. :) Oh- also I'm chubby and Shay used to be chubby so he is also inspiring me in that way as well! Haha.. Bye!
