If someone were to ask you, “Are you happy now?” what would be your answer? A few months ago, my friend asked me the same question. I suddenly realized – “No, I am not happy!”
I came here seven years ago from my country and I worked really hard for the last five years at a bank. I worked without any passion. I was just working like a machine. I had no regrets but I wanted to be happy. So, I decided to find another job that would make me happy.
Now, I am a Care Giver. In-home Support Service includes a wide range of services to meet individual needs and assist eligible persons with disabilities to live safely at home. This job seems to fit my personality. I want to support my clients from the bottom of my heart. I am currently taking care of four people. They need my service and we get along with each other. I treat them as if they are my parents. They also treat me like family, and always wait for my visit. Above all, a good point is that I am able to help someone in need. Even though my salary decreased, I feel better than before. Maybe this work will be hard for me, but I don’t regret my decision to change jobs.
These days I spend time doing things that make me happy. If someone asks me, “Are you happy?” I’m certainly sure my answer is “I am very happy nowadays!”
