“Every morning I wake up and I tell myself this: It’s just
one day, one twenty-four-hour period to get yourself through.
I don’t know when exactly I started giving myself this
daily pep talk—or why. It sounds like a twelve-step
mantra and I’m not in Anything Anonymous, though to
read some of the crap they write about me, you’d think
I should be. I have the kind of life a lot of people would
probably sell a kidney to just experience a bit of. But
still, I find the need to remind myself of the temporariness
of a day, to reassure myself that I got through yesterday,
I’ll get through today.”
