It’s ok that you didn’t clean the house today,
It’s ok that you didn’t run six miles,
It’s ok that you don’t know how to make soufflé,
Or that you’re not always full of smiles,
Don’t worry that you haven’t learnt to crochet,
Don’t worry if you feel a little blue,
It’s ok to relax sometimes,
Just do the things that make you, you.
Take this time to re-evaluate,
The things you really need,
Enjoy the sun that’s right outside,
Read that book you want to read,
Chat to a neighbour that you’ve never met,
Re-read your favourite bible verse,
Make sure that you’re eating well,
And just remember, it could be worse.
Remember you are loved,
Remember to be safe,
Phone a friend, say a prayer,
Remember to have faith.
(Leah Plant – aged 14)
