    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 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
    you can climb it in your own time
    just love yourself til then
