do we usually
have to be desperate
before we are willing
to make a change?

Why do we have to be
so miserable for so long
and even then many
won’t make a change?

Try it, you may like it.
If not, change again.
Put in some thought and heart
and just make a change.

Any change will do to start.
We are designed to grow and change.
Our first two-dozen years
are filled with change
and then…

many settle for what they’ve got,
inside and out, and only grow
at the midline. Be bold,
take a risk, make a change.

I dare you—
OK, double dare you.
