Melanie is the host of SYW
What are you most proud of in the last year?
I am most proud of graduating from my mental health in the community course, and I am also proud that I still volunteer every day and have done so all through our lockdowns.
If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or give in to the child within and splash about?
I always give in and splash around in it! I’m a big kid at heart!
Do you feel free? Why or why not?
I do feel free. I feel freer than I have done but I wish I could be free from mental illnesses and memories of past traumas.
What life skills are rarely taught but are extremely useful?
They don’t teach you how to deal with conflict at school but I think they should. Its extremely useful in later life.
GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)
Please share some gratitude with everyone!
I am grateful that I will be fully vaccinated soon! I am also grateful to my PA frances for cleaning my house today! And I am grateful that I am still alive, and still breathing.
