“The Mountain”

18th Feb 2024

With work piling up & many tasks still to be finished, I was wondering how to spend my Sunday & I came across this wonderful poem by Laura Edwards which pointed me in the right direction.

“If the mountain seems too big today,

then climb a hill instead;

If morning brings you sadness,

it’s okay to stay in bed.

If the day ahead feels 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 failure,

Just a quiet, kind retreat.

It’s okay 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,

You can climb it in your own time,

Just love yourself till then!”

Take a break, enjoy your Sunday & Stay blessed forever.
