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.

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!

  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.)

  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.

    • 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!

  5. 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. http://angelanoelauthor.com/inspiration-motivation/be-awesome-in-real-life/everyday-awesome-a-blessed-project/

    • 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!

  12. What a wonderful post and idea Susie. I’ve only just found it today but really hope to take part in it. Definitely one way to slow down and think about all the things we have to be grateful for on this busy season.

  17. I told you I’d be back! I’m loving this project! It is such a great idea not only to make a list for yourself but to read other people’s sort of reminds you of stuff you forgot too. I’m loving your Broncos pic and the hopscotch shot. 🙂 The video was super cool too. That is the one thing that’s on my list that I haven’t done yet. I know you’re an awesome skier, but snowboard is on the list and you just reminded me of that 🙂 THANKS for spreading the positive vibes.
