Ever since I returned from Portland
(A whole week ago)
I’ve been trying
To break my routines
In small ways.
I go to different restaurants.
I order different things.
My goal (unlike it’s been for years)
Is not to choose the “healthiest” thing.
It’s within the loose boundaries of my likes & dislikes,
To try something I normally would not.
Other than exposure,
I’m unsure what differences
Such changes will make.
I’m hoping that breaking
Some of my normal patterns
Will in turn
Make other, harder things easier to change.
