Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven." - John Milton, Paradise Lost
Several days ago I signed up for something pretty ridiculous. They’re calling it the ‘100 Happy Days’ challenge. Fairly self explanatory: you’ve got to do something that makes you happy every day for a hundred days, and share a photo of it.
It’s stupid that I’m even attempting this. A guy diagnosed with clinical depression. How long do you reckon I’ll last, day nine? I promised a friend that I’d give it my best shot. I’m just coming up on day five.
So I thought I’d share this with you all. One out of every ten people worldwide experience depression. It’s one of the most subtle, destructive forces in the world, and brings even the strongest of us to bear. For those out there also struggling through this condition, I urge you to join in this bizarre challenge and fight depression with me every day for a hundred days.
Love you all guys.
