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. 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.


    1. I love your project! The photos really capture your wonderful life with friends and family. I found the exercise to have lasting benefits. It’s so easy to focus on the negative, but doing this exercise really carried over into my perspective on life!
      Thanks for your contribution!

          1. thanks, i will work on it, and if i have any difficulties i will get in touch, i can use Microsoft word and all that, it’s just that i never studied WordPress, thanks.


  2. 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.

    Here’s my Blessed Project … bringing sunshine and that Coppertone 45 feel all the way from California


  3. Just catching up on blogs I read, and sorry I missed this. It’s a lot like the one I invited you to last year, that just went up again yesterday (3rd year in a row 😉 ). Stop over and join in. I was going to email a bunch of you today, but saw your post first. Happy holidays, Susie!
