The seven blessings project

BloggingSamantha WetterholmComment

Oh goodness, we all know that one person who can go on and on about all the negative things going on in his or her life {of course I’m talking about imagined woes and not actual hardships}. I, myself get into bad habits and start to harp on all the problems and miseries of my day. Well, I do not find that a particularly attractive quality in others and even more so, I really dislike it in myself.

I believe that we need to spend more time thinking about all the great things going on in our lives and the amazing people we share them with. I stumbled upon this quote that sums it up rather nicely.

I invite you all to participate in a little project with me - The Seven Blessings Project. Every week, count seven blessings in your life {one for each day of the week and because seven is such a magical number}. Write them down and reflect on them when life gets tough and you are feeling a little blue. They can be big or small or anything in between.

I will be sharing my Seven Blessings each week on Twitter and occasionally on my blog. I would love to hear what your blessings are too! Leave a comment of where I can find your blessings or use the hashtag “#7blessings” on Twitter or Instagram.

This week, my blessings are: 

1 :: My growing baby in my belly.

2 :: Living in a beautiful city.

3 :: Foot rubs from my husband. 

4 :: Frozen blueberry waffles from Trader Joe’s.

5 :: Text messages from my mom.

6 :: Flower arrangements.

7 :: New baby clothes.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
