Do not make huge changes,
Make subtle adjustments.
Too grand or too sudden,
And it won’t stick.
Try drinking four beers
On a Sunday,
Instead of six.
Grow your hair
A little longer,
Read a book by an author,
You have not tried before.
Go to a different bar,
Take the train
Instead of your car.
Eat mulligatawny soup and
Watch a French movie
On Television.
Worry about the morning,
When it comes.
