Making Life-Changing Choices
Sometimes the smallest most insignificant decisions can lead to the biggest impact. After all, we make decisions all day, "Will I go for a run or sleep another 30 minutes? Do I want to make dinner or order in? Take the new job or stay put?" But sometimes, those tiny, seemingly unimportant decisions can also shape the course of our lives. Do you take the time to reflect? Can you see the moments when the small decisions created the big change? Do you accept the moments when the world slipped off its axis and life just changed? Can we learn to recognize these small moments that had the big impact and are we able to see the lesson in the change?

She is a mother, an author, a television personality, and interventionist. She is also a former addict who ended up homeless on the streets of San Francisco — willing to do anything to survive.
