Some mornings we need more than an alarm clock to get us to rise and shine. 

Blessings and positive affirmations can give us the nudge we need to get the day off to the right start. That’s where Irish good morning blessings come in handy.

These words of wisdom can help you find clarity, courage and motivation to make the very best out of this day. 

May your joys be as bright as the morning, 
And your sorrows merely be shadows 
That fade in the sunlight of love.

May the joy of a merry heart
And all the happiness of shamrocks
Be with you throughout the day.

May love and laughter brighten your days
And warm your hearth and home.

May the merry laughter of a child brighten your day
And carry all sorrows far away.

May the Lord keep you in His hand
And never close His fist too tight.

The Irish Blessing

The most famous of all Irish blessings is the Irish Prayer (also known as May the Road Rise to Meet You Blessing). 

It is used for a lot of different occasions, including as a blessing at weddings and final farewell at funerals

However, its simple message is also applicable for the start of any new day or new chapter in your life. 

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, 
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Bonus Tip: 

Perhaps you may benefit from writing your blessing in a journal each day. This way you can also easily keep track of the blessings that particularly resonate with you.

For those of you who like to be organized, you can even write out your chosen blessing the previous night. Place it somewhere that you will see first thing in the morning.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that pass away
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

May you make the best of every situation
And face life with positive thoughts.

Like the warmth of the sun
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish
Shine bright on your way. 

I wish you eyes that perceive the small things of everyday life
And put them in perspective.

Each morning is sacred. It is a fresh start and a beautiful moment to be treasured.

Blessings help us consciously remember the uniqueness of each morning and celebrate the beauty of each blessed day

Did you know? Light and early morning has been important to the Irish and their ancestors for millenia.

For a few mornings around the winter solstice, the light from sunrise is aligned with the entrance to the ancient burial chamber of Newgrange. (This Neolithic structure is older than the pyramids!)

The exact significance of the light entering the stone-lined corridor and into the back of the burial chamber is not completely understood.

However, the effort and precision required to build such a unique structure implies that it was of central importance to their cultural beliefs.

Wherever the sun comes out of the clouds,
Hope that it shines especially for you,
So that every day of your life may be as bright as possible.

May the colors of the flowers reflect in your eyes and put a smile on your face.

May every day of your life always be filled with a laughing heart,
Sunshine in your mind,
Wind at your back and a good pinch of cheerfulness.

May you live as long as you want,
But never want as long as you live.

God bless you now and always with the gift of Irish cheer.
God give to you a happy heart and keep you through the year.
