If the mountains seem to 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 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 mountains will still be there

when you want to try again,

you can climb it in your own time,

just LOVE yourself till then.
