Unfortunately, that never happens either. How perfect is the timing of becoming a new mother or smoking your last cigarette? That's what I thought. But then again, perhaps that means it was right all along. Yet sometimes the smallest shifts can get us to take action on the things that have held us up for a lifetime.
