If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be to talk and socialize with people. Yes, it may sound uneventful and not exactly the definition of a “job”, but it could be life changing. Many people don’t have someone to talk to when they are going through the hardest times in their lives, such as a divorce or the loss of a family member. A simple phone call or house visit can make a big difference. I have experienced this first hand by volunteering at a hospice where I visit patients and talk to them. Allowing them to communicate what they are feeling and share their life experiences is truly rewarding, for the both of us. With today’s technology, people are hiding behind screens thinking that is the norm of communication. It is an eye opening experience to get involved with people who are living in an older generation without the harms of technology. I am presented with the opportunity to turn my phone off and communicate in ways today’s society has forgotten. By turning away from our screens we can connect with people rather than connect to our Wi-Fi. Because it won’t be long before the rings of doorbells get replaced with the rings of text messages.
