If there’s one thing my life as a heart surgeon has taught me, it’s that momentous changes can happen in the blink of an eye.
It takes just one moment of inattention or exhausted carelessness during an operation to cause a mishap that can take hours to salvage.
It takes just a second’s dozing off at the wheel of a speeding car to cut short the life of a promising doctor.
It takes one fleeting instant for the Universe to change – when a parent hears about the loss of a child, or when the world hears about a 9/11 tragedy.
Or, in a relatively mundane way…
It may take just a phone call or letter or email or text message to shift your mood from despair to delighted hope!
My world could change – in the blink of an eye!
So could yours!
