I recently saw most of the film THE UPSIDE, starring Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman. I missed a little of the beginning but I watched and enjoyed the rest. I was surprised by how much I felt for Kevin Hart in the film, because I'd previously only seen him in commercials or very short comedic bits and he got on my nerves, to be honest.
In this book he tells the story of his life, his successes and failures, his positive and negative points, his love for his mom and family, and his willingness to work hard and get it done. It was not all fun and games, because a fair amount of the time he and his first wife were constantly fighting, (he was cheating, she might have been), and so on.
What impressed me the most was his ability to shrug things off and stay positive and I'm going to try to take that ability and incorporate it into my life.
This was hilarious and informative and fun to listen to, if maybe just a tad too long.
Highly recommended, especially to those who love to listen to the memoirs of comedians.

From best-selling author Melanie A. Smith comes the first book in a new series of steamy contemporary medical romance standalone novels about life lessons that break all the rules. What’s the first rule of nurse’s club? That’s right: Never date a doctor. Which Sasha Suvorin has no intention of doing anyway, since she’s a nurse at Rutherford Hospital by day and working on her master’s degree by night. Who has time for dating, much less dating someone you work with? Bad idea much? That is, until the sexy British Dr. Caleb Thompson starts at her hospital. It also doesn’t help that he’s exactly her type with his dark hair, blue eyes, and rockin’ bod. Or that he’s not your typical arrogant and bossy surgeon. But Sasha isn’t so easily convinced, and she soon discovers Dr. Hottie has a past that puts a stop to whatever she might have been feeling before anything ever starts between them. Unfortunately, working together means facing temptation. Every. Single. Day. Is Sasha strong enough to resist what might just be the perfect man? And if she gives in, will Cal’s past stay in the past? Sasha may be used to playing it safe, but life has a way of teaching its lessons … one way or another.
When you lose your way in the middle of your journey,
When things start going wrong halfway through,
When there is an eclipse after a sunny morning,
That’s when you feel the pain so acutely.
But that’s also the time to remember and hope,
Because things get better only after they get worse,
Losing your way will lead to new enchanting roads,
Things going wrong will cause you to find new solutions,
And the sun will shine brightly after the eclipse.
Life is all about good, bad, and everything in between,
It is about the right, the wrong, and so much more,
It can be easy and difficult both at the same time,
All that matters is; we keep moving forward.
Be happy if you lose your way and find your soul,
Be glad if things go wrong and you discover life’s purpose,
Celebrate the solar eclipse, it doesn’t come that often,
More than that, don’t blame yourself for what’s meant to be.
