TALES : PART THREE – THE PLAN

Over the next year, my plan is to bring together individuals who may feel isolated and create communities of support. I witnessed at first hand, the incredible power of bringing people together that were bound by a common issue and the impact the experience had on them.

My idea is to create a programme of walks that will focus on particular groups. People will meet, share their experiences as we walk, ask questions to each other and feel that they are not alone in feeling and experiencing these things. The open landscape lends itself so perfectly to open conversations.

These walks will range from grief to mental health and everything in between. There could be walks for parents with children with autism, walks for those who are battling or have beaten cancer. The scope for these walks is so broad and I would love people to suggest issues that I could focus on or might be helpful to them. I’m no counsellor or expert in anything but I’m committed to bringing people together, creating these communities of support and widening these circles of care so that people do not feel isolated.

At some point later down the line, I think documenting conversations with people and sharing them somehow, could help widen these circles even further. I feel I have a real purpose with this and I’m desperate to make it work. And I will. I’m also under no illusions that I won’t need help; so if you feel like you could to lend a hand in any way, please get in touch. No road, however difficult, should ever have to be faced alone.

      Hello Sarah, Thank you so much for your message and your kind words. I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. I’m sure she’d be incredibly proud of you and Carwyn for your amazing walk around Anglesey. I’d love to hear more about this and I think those that visit the blog would too. Would you be interested in writing a piece about it?
