I need a lift

I'm trying to help a client find a job who hasn't worked in 20 years. In any circumstance finding a job for him would be hard. But now.... I honestly believe he could find great work. He is very intelligent. I would hire him. But it's the out there that worries me.

A client came in today in such despair. "It's so hard out there." I let him know that we are behind him and he replied with "that's why I come here. I need a lift."

Do you ever look at things and wish they weren't this way. But the deep longing in our hearts must be a sign that a better world is possible? We all deserve something better. Than this.

Life's challenges have always compelled me to desperation more often than not.
Former UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan's, quote is usually a source of inspiration: "The world is at a critical juncture, and so are you....Go ahead and make your plans... and don't stop learning. But be open to the detours that lead to new discoveries."
