Imagine a job where the point is to just be yourself

I was just thinking about how blessed I am with my job at the adult day centre. The point of my job is to be with the people. Yes, we have lots of programs to fill up the day and make it interesting and enjoyable, but still, the point of me being there is to be with the clients and it is my personality that makes it work.

I was thinking about it right now because tomorrow I’m not actually running any programs so I was thinking about what my purpose is, then, of being there, and it’s really quite simple. I’m there in order to be there. Be caring and loving and shmooz a lot.

I really do love the clients and look forward to seeing them. Because it is not a one-way road in any shape or form. I get so much love and care back. I get so much appreciation from the clients that a typical day means I leave happier than I arrived in the morning and I got so many smiles and laughs and thank yous and compliments.

Thank God.
