Here's an excerpt.
What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory. Each day is a wonder....No matter what our troubles, when the earth turns on its axis one more time and we see what appears to be the sun rising, I feel it's the universe calling for a change in ourselves. You have one more day. Rise with it!
Oh shut up Oprah - you know nothing.
On that note, I've decided to write about the things I'm most ungrateful for. Don't get me wrong. I'm a pretty happy person almost all of the time, but a good bitch now and then is good for the soul. Topping my list today is definitely my greatest genetic misfortune.
I wish I was one of those people who could wake up in the morning looking tousled. You know what I mean? Jennifer Aniston probably looks tousled when she wakes up in the morning. My daughter Stinky wakes up in the morning looking tousled. These are the types of people who get up and (without even brushing) toss their hair into an unruly ponytail and look like a million bucks.
This was me this morning.
I want to slap them.
"Oh I'm sorry," I'll answer. "How unfortunate. I guess I should be happy, because unless I sprint from the shower to the hair dryer in the bedroom, my few strands of hair are already dry by the time I get there."
So, there you have it. My first installment of things I'm ungrateful for. I feel better already.
