Working and loving it!

I began working this week. The work is at the MS Society office in Modbury, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. I'm going to be working 15 hours a week. Five hours a day, three days a week. So, on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, I'll be heading off for the 45 minute drive. I start at 10am and finish at 3pm.

I wasn't entirely sure I could do this, but, judging by my first two days this week, it's going to be great. I've enjoyed the work so far and I'm excited about the project I'm working on. This job is a work placement and is the final piece of the journey started with studying for the Certificate 4 Community Services Work.

I completed the study part, and now I am going to do 140 hours of this work placement, then I will have earned the qualification. There is no money for this work, but the experience I will gain as I put what I have learned into practice, will be invaluable. I have an illness, Multiple Sclerosis, and the people in my workplace know exactly what I need, and what I can and can't do. It's good not having to explain everything if I feel I have to sit down for a rest.

It may be harder work than just staying home doing not much at all, but I want to do this. And if it does get more difficult, I'll keep on as best I can. I certainly won't let that stop me from following my dream of helping people to find their best life possible, no matter what is handed to them.

I'm living my dream life, and I don't see why other people shouldn't be able to do the same.
