Be Different - Make a Difference
Good evening everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend! This post is dedicated to all you dreamers and achievers out there and I've even fabricated a little friend (pictured above, created via Photoshop) to inspire everyone! I've dubbed him 'Chirpy' and he's just a reminder that you're amazing and that you can achieve amazing things.
The influence for this particular post stems from my gaining employment recently and even though I am a designer at heart and you may stereotypically think that I'd be working in a colourful environment to match my persona, I actually don't. So, allow me to give you all a bitta background to my story; for quite some time now I've been scouring the scenes for a job that offered substance, something rewarding, ya'know? And I've had my fair share of working in empty retail jobs but have felt that I never truly could give anything back. I yearned to make a difference and not just be another student drone, working in promotions for freshers. And then, something amazing happened - lo and behold, I was awarded the opportunity to work with a wonderful worldwide company called Home Instead Senior Care whereby workers offer their companionship in caring for the elderly in the comfort of their own homes.
I know it sounds silly and immensely cheesy, but I am thrilled to be of service to these beautiful older folk and I am so excited to be the person who gets to brighten up their day, be that with just sharing a cuppa with them whilst watching Countdown or listening to their marvellous life stories and adventures and you never know, maybe I'll learn a thing or two! Additionally, my enthusiasm for wanting to work in the care sector also occurred because I missed the company of my grandmother back home in Northern Ireland, as she's been living with my mum and myself since before I can remember! I missed the responsibility and companionship of an older person, so my granny truly is my inspiration for wanting to go on and be different; to make a difference.
