When my family arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1985 we were following our dreams. My husband was returning to beautiful memories and I was ready to immerse myself into the American Dream. We moved to Florida eventually and it was not all that dreamy in the beginning and yet, life today is beyond my wildest expectations.
My life as an optician started in a family business in Germany. They trained me well. My first 6 months in the optical shop were spent in the lab, learning to work with frames, hand edging, filing, polishing, soldering………And then, they let me work on a real person, I was allowed upfront. I was so eager to adjust my first patient’s eyeglasses perfectly that I burnt his ears in the process. Back to the lab for another 3 months. They trained me well.
Many years have passed and I have never burnt another person’s ears. Sometimes we learn best from traumatic experiences.
