We all have good reasons for not doing things don't we? I'll wear that bikini when I lose 15 lbs. I'll go visit Paris when I'm engaged. I'll look for a better job when I've saved more money. And how often does that particular time never come?
As children, we all loved being told a story. Our parents would make up a fable or read us a fairy tale or favorite book and we loved it and couldn't wait for them to tell us another -- or read us the same one over and over again.
