Over the past year I have had some things happen in my personal life that have made me rethink my priorities. As a result I quit my high stress insurance job to spend more time doing things that actually matter and my next goal is to find a job that I love that impacts someone's life in a positive and meaningful way.
Growing up I absolutely adored my grandparents, the time I spent with them and the memories of those times mean more to me than anything. After losing my last living grandmother in 2014 it has felt like there is a hole in my heart that nothing can fill. I find myself wondering how many fascinating stories may have gone untold and how many valuable skills and lessons might have gone untaught.
I have spent the last year doing a lot of self reflection, it was during this time that it occurred to me how much I longed to have an elderly person in my life who I could listen to, learn from and hopefully I could add some additional happiness to their life as well.
