Join The #Blessed Project!

It’s been a Wild month and the holidays are upon us. How did that happen? It can be hard to switch gears from stressed-out to happy guest or entertainer. Compounded by worry and lack of sleep, our usual energy may be zapped. We may feel far from blessed.

I have a solution for you! Sometime between now and December 17th take a break and make a blessed project list. This will remind you of what makes you happy. We can only think about one thing at a time, so this project should hip-check negative thoughts out of your cranium for a while. Endorphins will fill the space. Can you feel it?

Your post can be as long or short as you like. It’s your #Blessed Project.

Time is a commodity and I don’t want to add to your stress level. If you get into it, take as much time as you want. Include photos, videos, artwork. Or keep it simple and only write a list. You can easily jot down the first few things that come to mind. Done.

There is no right or wrong.

Ask your family why they feel blessed. It could be a sparkly distraction if things get tense over Thanksgiving break. Remember, we can only focus one thing at a time.

  1. Write a #Blessed Project article and post it on your blog.
  2. Include a link to this post. Spread the positivity!
  3. Paste your link in the comment section below by Saturday, December 17th.
  4. Stop back anytime to read other posts. You know the drill. Tell them “Susie sent me from the Blessed Project,” and they should click back to your place.

BONUS! On December 19th, I’ll blog the list of #Blessed Projects pasted in the comments, to reach out to more readers.

Don’t have a blog? Write one and post it on Facebook. Reading them is just as heartwarming as the exercise.

Here’s the start of my list. I’m sure it will grow with updates throughout the season.

I felt blessed to ski in Breckenridge with family and friends on opening weekend.

I’m blessed to live in Colorado and


to have found a physical therapist, so I can do this:

There’s nothing like Thanksgiving! #Blessed

I am blessed to be surrounded by friends and family and dogs!

I am blessed for having a partner in adventure


and for having a sense of humor, which really came in handy this month.


To walk on moonlit nights. #Blessed

And I am blessed for all of you!

Think about your own blessings. Make a list, post it and then leave your url in the comments. I’d love to link you up in another post on December 19th.

Need more ideas? There are some great examples in the comments section. They’re rolling in!


Here’s a new opportunity to participate in 2017!

  1. I have more blessings than I can count and no time to count them in!

    Plus, I’ve been questioning whether to do a new post while I’m still getting my site ready, or if I should just quietly shut my blog down now. (I’m just going to hide it, actually, because I want it to still be there if/when I decide not to fuss with a site anymore.)


    1. That’s what I was thinking. I needed a pick-me-up the other day, so this idea was born! I hope you’ll post something in the next couple weeks, Anneli. Link me up and we’ll spread the word!


    1. What an amazing list, Al! I loved the introduction to your family. I feel like a caught a glimpse of what’s inside your heart. This is a great example of the #Blessed Project! Thanks for joining me.
      Happy Thanksgiving to you!


  2. This is so awesome! Blessed Project rocks, especially considering all the bad stuff and disastrous people happening to our country. Love it! And I finally was able to check out the video. It was on this post and not the First Snow post. Ha! I thought something was wrong with my computer because I kept clicking on the pictures and not video would come out. Ha! I’m such a nerd. When I saw this post I was like aha! That’s the video she was talking about in her comment. I’ll definitely get started on this list and send it your way. Thanks for the positive vibes.


    1. Somehow I missed your comment, Guat!
      Sorry I confused you. I can imagine the frustration of not getting the photo to “go.” 🙂 I’m so glad you’re thinking about doing a post! Link it up in the comments so I see it and I’ll include it in the Blessed Project post December 19th.
      I’m so glad you stopped by! Merry merry!


  3. Hi Susie! This year, nine people shared their lives with me by allowing me to interview and profile them on my new blog. Among the innumerable gifts my friends and family have offered me, these nine honored me with their stories and their trust. They are everyday heroes, whose actions inspire creativity, adventure, and a passion for a well-lived life. I feel #blessed beyond measure.


          1. I was kidding (exaggerating), but I also upgraded to the middle package (one step up from the free one). I may run out of space on that one too, but I’m not sure if I’ll delete some of my old posts or upgrade another step. Will decide later on. Definitely it’s better to have the upgrade, even the first step.


    1. Hello neighbor! You will love Colorado Springs. It has one of the most breathtaking vistas as you drive toward town.
      I LOVE your #Blessed Project list, Suze! You really hit on all the important blessings. Thanks so much for joining us!

  4. Such a beautiful idea. This is the right thing for me as I feel all teary right now. Writing about my blessings will sure lead me towards a good place in my head. Thank you. Stay blessed.


    1. Nice to meet you, Deb! Thanks for swinging by from Danny’s place.
      I found this exercise to be very positive and life-affirming. I tend to be a Susie Sunshine kind of soul, but even I have my moments, especially with this anti-cancer drug I’m on. Less than two years to go! *counts down*
      Bless you too, Deb!
