“If the mountain seem too big today” is a poem written by Laura Ding-Edwards.

The words resonated with me because we all need to be gentle with ourselves in this chaotic world we live in.  It involves one of my favourite subjects, surprise, self care, setting boundaries, whatever you want to call it….

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

If you would prefer to read the poem for yourself, you can find it below the video.

If the mountain seems too big today, then climb a hill instead

If the morning brings you sadness, it’s okay to stay in bed.

If the day ahead weighs 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 for days, don’t throw away your crown.

A day is not a lifetime, a rest is not a 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 til then.
