It’s been a while. It actually feels like its been forever.
The job I started way back in late February of this year, has not only taken up most of my time, it’s also effected how I look at and see people, and I mean REALLY SEE people.
I took this job because I thought I could help those who truly need help, stupidly or naively believing I could perhaps make a difference, however small the difference.
It’s kind of strange, a foolish kluge, a conundrum that makes my attempts to sleep at night a real struggle. Yet, it’s the most fruitless and rewarding job I’ve ever undertaken throughout my working life. It’s a brilliant, cruel nightmare that never stops spewing out rewards and failures and triumphs at the exact same moment. And I love it.
The team I work with are very experienced and a little bit cynical, but brilliant at what they do and always give it one hundred percent.
This is just a very brief post before I try to make some time to actually write again, which is what I love to do.
By the way, my job title is Enablement Worker, supposedly employed by the local council to enable those who need to find the motivation to restart their lifes. The experiences I’ve had so far have altered how I see life and view other people.
Some of us really are very fortunate and I’ll begin to write about the people I support and help when I find the time and motivation. I hope everyone is safe, well and happy.
