The first ‘job’ on my list would be to volunteer at a drop-in centre. I am actually doing that at the moment. Before I started this, my first thoughts were:
- people will smell
- there will be too many people out of hand because of drink or drugs
- they won’t talk to me
How wrong I was. Yes, there are some of the above, but the majority are wonderful people, who have helped me see the world through different eyes and challenged my ‘proper’ thinking!
The second job would be to fruit pick, whether that were cherries, apples or grapes. At the same time, I would love to learn how to tend orchards and vineyards. I already love growing my own fruit, vegetables and salads so this would be another avenue for me to explore.
The third job would be to cook for others. I love baking cakes and bread, making jams and chutneys etc. And I know that everybody loves to eat so I would see my hard work being appreciated.
After all, everyone want to be appreciated. Being paid for your work isn’t the only way to receive appreciation, and sometimes, there are definitely more satisfying ways of expressing it.
