#obsessed: Best Day Of My Life - American Authors

I recently rediscovered this wonderful little song. It's just so happy and uplifting, the perfect song to complete your mood when you're having a good day.

This song also inspired me to pursue something new. I've always tried to keep journals, but they were so time consuming that I'd just stop after a week. A few weeks ago, I watched a video about a woman who was doing the "100 Day Challenge," where one does something new every day for 100 days in a row. She was trying to lose weight while working her way out of a bad situation and depression. I was thoroughly impressed by her dedication and honesty, to film her struggle and share it with the world. It inspired me to do the challenge as well. I understand that depression is not permanent, that it has its highs and lows. Sometimes, when I have normal days, depression is just another problem that I need to overcome. I use the clarity in that state of mind to figure out the problem inside and out. Through this process, I've discovered a few things about depression, and I'm glad that I have those things to hold on to and think about when I start to feel myself slipping back into the dark emptiness. These last few days, I've found that it gives me hope to reflect on the highlight of my day, no matter how small it is. Therefore, my 100 Day Challenge will be to record myself saying something that made me happy that day. At the end of the 100 days, if I've managed to keep it up for 100 days, and if the videos are good, then I'll compile them into one video and post it here on my blog. Wish me luck!


  1. Yay! I love this song!

  2. Good luck! You can get through this. You are never alone in your struggles :)
    I wish you the best of luck, and I can't wait to see the video.

    1. Thank you so much kind anon! This literally made my day :) I'm afraid you'll have to wait a while; 100 days is not a short time, but I'll get there! Thank you!
