Day 192 – 24th July 2018 – Darwin, last shift at the Resort

Today I worked with someone different and felt totally heartbroken by her story, to the point that I was nearly in tears for her at one stage as she shared some of what she has been through.  She has had an incredibly traumatic life and I admire her strength to survive and her attitude.  She works hard and is really good at her job.  She calls a spade a spade and doesn’t hold back telling you her opinion, which puts a lot of people off.  I actually enjoyed it and learnt a lot from her, sharing tips and tricks as the day went on.  At the end of the day I told her that I had enjoyed working with her and she actually looked shocked and I was worried I had said something wrong.  She said that no-one had ever told her that before and it was like she wasn’t quite sure what to do with this information.  It was such an interesting reaction it has made me chuckle every time I picture her face at the compliment.  It was sincerely said and I did enjoy my last day working with her.  I will definitely miss aspects of this place and this role.  I have learnt so much and am so much fitter and stronger than when I arrived.  I really did enjoy the experience and just learning new skills.  What will the next chapter bring?
