"It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself."
Muhammad Ali

Tuesday to Friday were very special. After a 3 hour drive from London I got to a farm in the middle of no where really. No cell service, unless you walk all the way up a hill. No sugar. No chaotic travelling. 

Although I was there as part of my work however I did have to get involved in the whole farm experience, that is literally do farm work which I was not so keen about instantly. After the first round I was so happy to have gone. 

The best part of the experience, though, has been that I managed to overcome many fears. Fears which may seem stupid, like an extreme phobia of dogs, however quite important. They're not important only because now I can go to Hyde park without feeling stressed with every dog that struts past me but also because I had the opportunity to prove to myself that with a lot of resilience I can achieve things I deem impossible. Growing up I was never a quitter but it does not mean I was confident in my persistence. Believing in myself has always been an issue and opportunities like this are perfect to help me see the positive outcomes this has. 

It was also a good place to realise the unhealthy ways of my life. I'm not talking about my food, that deserves another post of its own, but about mental health. It took  a 3 hour drive and a no technology situation forced on me to wind down, relax properly and do some soul searching. At that is another challenge I find; Allowing myself to listen to myself. It can be quite scary at times because it means dealing with certain feelings and thoughts and it is so much is easier to bury the under thoughts of work. However, it is also how you can lose yourself and believing in oneself at that point is a harder task to complete.

I have definitely not come out of this with an absolute confidence but it has made me realise that I want to start believing in myself a bit more. I realised that I should not be afraid of the challenges and more importantly to find time to just let my inner self rise to the surface.

Have a great week x
