An Irish poem for inspiration.

Recommended Posts

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.

 

If the day ahead weighs heavy,

and your plans feel like a curse,

There’s no shame in rearranging, 

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 for days,

Don’t throw away your crown. 


A day is not a lifetime,

A rest is not defeat.

Don’t think of it as a failure,

Just a quiet, kind retreat. 


It’s OK to take a moment

From an anxious fractured mind,

The world will not stop turning

While you get realigned. 


The mountain will still be there

When you want to try again,

So climb it in your own time,

And love yourself till then.
