I don’t know if it’s because it’s November or because Thanksgiving is coming up, but recently I’ve found myself counting my blessings. They’ve just been crossing my mind a few times each day, but they’ve made me realize how undeservingly blessed I am.

I owe it to so many people to say thank you–which is what I was about to do in this post. But then I started writing, which led to babbling, which led to 2,000 words and only five people being thanked. But there’s so many more I need to say thank you to, and there’s so much more I need to say!

So I’ve started this project. I have 21 days until Thanksgiving and every day I will thank someone new. I know that most (if not all) don’t even know about this blog, so they won’t ever find these posts, but this is something I need to do. And hopefully it’ll prompt me to give them proper thanks in person.

Lord knows they all deserve at least that.



PS. The other wonderful thing about this project is that I can share a new song every day! I’ve been getting a lot of new music recently and was almost just going to write a separate post of my current music obsessions–but this is so much better! So, the song of the day is Ugly Heart by G.R.L. Enjoy!

PPS. Join me! I understand that this idea is nowhere near original. There’s probably tons of tags/trends that are going viral this month, but take part! I started writing just a few letters giving thanks and it felt so amazing to finally get these long-overdue words off my chest. So whether you join me in this specific project or not, I strongly encourage everyone to reach out and show someone how much they are appreciated. The feeling you’ll both get is worth it. At the very least, just do it to be festive.
