Nelson Mandela said ‘Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again’. I don’t think we’ve ever realised the power of these words quite as much as in recent months when 2021 brought back to many of us the lockdowns we thought we had left behind in 2020. I find inspiration from my children – as they learn to navigate the world (and openly express their emotions in the way small people do best!), their ability to learn and adapt is a wonder to see. I also saw this in the Y team which I am so proud to represent.
2020 was a year for learning, and 2021 has been the time where we put our new skills back into practice, and to keep our Y whānau connected and supported during some further bumps in the road. In this edition, we talk about what our parents shared with us about their lockdown experiences, and how important it is for everyone to keep active, so you can keep healthy physically and mentally, and find resilience when you need it the most.
