THE RENEW EXPERIENCE
"You can't pour from an empty cup."
I believe this quote encapsulates this personal development experience for me.
I love helping people and being kind and thoughtful is in my nature but in the past I have been this way at times to the detriment of my own happiness.
Through RENEW I have realised that if I live by my values and am true to myself, I can find a balance and feel more at peace by placing my own happiness on the same level that I do others. This will allow me to have more power and capacity to help others, be kind and be thoughtful.
The RENEW experience has taught me so much. I look forward to sharing this knowledge with my family, friends and colleagues to create a ripple effect with the amazing tools we have been taught. I know that I still have so much to learn from my experiences here and they will benefit me not only now but in the future as well!!
The relaxed and supportive environment combined with the emotional transformation that we all experienced lead to really special and unique lifelong bonds with the other members of the RENEW family and a much deeper connection with our own values.
Those bonds became even stronger as we co-facilitated a workshop at Makumira Secondary School. The children were so amazing, each one so eager to learn. It was an honour to be a part of the team and to encourage and assist the kids through each activity, seeing their confidence and self belief grow with each day!
I have thoroughly enjoyed each aspect of the RENEW experience! My heart is so full of joy and gratitude. Adam, Uswege and the whole RENEW family are so incredible - I can't thank them enough for their endless love and support!
I am really sad that our time in Tanzania has come to an end but I believe this experience is far from over, I look forward to continually challenging myself in the future in order to learn and grow.
Love you all loads and miss you already!!
