“Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.”

Robert Caspar Lintner


A Thanksgiving Challenge that can only leave you

being a whole other person in 8 days than you would have otherwise.

You’ve heard of The 12 Days of Christmas? Welcome to The 8 Days of Thanksgiving.

Simple challenge, yet will amp up your energy as well as contribute to the upliftment of others.

Between NOW and next Thursday — Thanksgiving here in the US (but play wherever you are) — take time each day to distinguish at least one blessing in your life, and post on some social media venue at least one thing you’re thankful for! Invite others to join in with you if you like, but post anyway, regardless of likes, loves, cares or comments! (Use hashtag #8daysofthanksgiving)

We’ll be playing this in our Back Forty Freedom Fliers Group (see above), and you’re more than invited to join us.

Yet please don’t take this simple game for granted. You’ll be amazed at not only what you’ll discover in and for yourself but the tide of good energy that will happen because of you. Use your blessings to incite others to count theirs. . .and let’s create a frikkin movement!

The 8 Days of Thanksgiving are upon you. Make a grateful noise!

Think differently, play better. (And, again, if you want to play with US, join us here.)
