Starting at the end of December 2018, I will be embarking on a solo
running journey from Bluff to Cape Reinga on the Te Araroa trail. I'm pretty
sure there will be plenty of walking and a dash of cycling too. I call it
a journey as that is what it will be and what it has taken to get to this
“A journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step”.
It takes many steps to achieve a journey and it all starts with
a single step, whatever our journey is, small steps have big impacts. This is
one of my steps. I find it challenging to tell others what I’m doing and what I
have done, but one of my goals is to help others achieve theirs. So how can I
ask that without first challenging myself. Mental health is a journey and I'm
doing this because I believe that Mental Health is a strength, and I want to
encourage others to take steps towards their potential. Being a teacher, I have
a particular interest in youth education and funding to support these amazing
individuals to believe in themselves and build strategies to survive and thrive
in our world.
