When I was 5 years old I was asked what I wanted to become when I grow up. I told them I wanted to become a fairy princess. All the grown-ups laughed and though that I was amusing. Children can’t grow up to become princesses, much less into a fairy.When I was 7, they asked me the same thing. My answer slightly changed. This time I wanted to become a fairy godmother. Again they laughed at the absurdity of my answer.When I was in middle school, my teacher asked the class what we want to do when we grow up. One classmate said he wants to drive and compete in a Grand Prix, another said she wants to sing the national anthem at a Super Bowl Championship, and another said he’d discover a new star and name it. My turn came and I said, “I want to make people happy.” The teacher smiled, commended me for the nobility of intentions and wished me good luck. Up to this day, my answer remain unchanged. My ideal profession is to make other people’s dream come true. I want to spend my life earning my keep by making people happy. In fact, that’s the motto of my company.
I run an event and festival services business. It is our job to make people’s dream come true no matter how childish, amusing, absurd or noble.
The last event we handled was a field trip for the patients of a children’s cancer foundation. The foundation directors wanted the patients to experience having a fun time at a theme park, enjoy amusement rides, and eat taffy and popcorn.
It was difficult to get the approval of the parents and government authorities. They are not willing to take the risk. Parents can be overprotective, while government authorities don’t want to be liable for any “accidents” that would aggravate the children’s already fragile states. We convinced the parents that the field trip had been idea of the foundation directors under the medical advice. The amusement rides for hire Melbourne will be limited to those approved by the physicians. There will also be a medical emergency team on standby at the park. We argued with the government officials on the same merits.
A Memorandum of Agreement was signed by representatives of the government, the foundation and the event and festival services company absolving the government of any accountability that may happen during the field trip. The field day came. The children arrived at the amusement park jumping and running out of the bus. Any onlooker would never guess that these children were sick or dying. Squeals of laughter filled the air. It was happiness in its truest form. This is what I live for. That night I came home exhausted but blissful. I remembered one particular day when I was 7, and I smile. I really grew up to become a fairy godmother.
