If the mountain seems too big today

If the mountain seems too big today

Then climb a hill instead

If the morning brings you sadness

It's ok to stay in bed ( for 15 minutes extra)

If the day ahead lies heavy

And your plans feel like a curse

There's no shame in re-arranging

Don't make yourself feel worse

If a shower stings like needles

And a bath feels like you'll drown

If you haven't washed your hair in days

Don't throw away your crown

A day is not a lifetime

A rest is not defeat

Don't think of it as failure

Just a quiet, kind retreat

It;s ok to take a moment

From a frantic, anxious time

The world will not stop turning

while you get re-aligned.

The mountain will still be there

When you want to try again

You can climb it in your own time

Just love yourself 'til then.

Laura Ding Edwards.

A poem for our time.
