The one thing that I have learned over time and has become the most important lesson in my life is that our sole purpose is to help others. We are all connected in one way or another. Having a connection from my heart to another is the best way to care for someone. My life has given me lots of loving opportunities to grow and find that caring for others is a true passion of mine. Life is like a fine painting we all have details in our lives that one can't handled alone. When that time arrives and the need to ask for a helping hand for those things we can not handle on our own that where I enjoy stepping in and helping others. My personality traits give me the ability to be very sensitive and gentle to others. I have been given the gift of being and empathy and feeling other people's emotions very deeply. This allows me to be very intune with other people. I enjoy sharing and learning from others. I work very hard at fullfilling all my commitments and duties to my best ability. I am very straight forward don't like to waist others time. Even tho I'm straight forward I do make it a point to always come across loving and respectful because we are all connected by our actions. This is why I believe I am well suited for caregiving. The reason I started care giving is because my grand father had a stroke. It broke my heart when people would not give the quality of care he deserved but only thought of him as a burden. What I enjoy the most about caregiving is when I know that the care and love I am providing is felt with great graditude by my client and they have a smile that says it all. The greatest achievement in my life would be assisting my ex in saving another person life.
