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-
O.K., double dare you.
