Doreen Bazile is a social worker. She sees many different patients with distinct needs and issues, regarding spirituality and religion, family conflict, loss, grief, bereavement, and more.

My name is Doreen Bazile. I'm the social worker, I've been a social worker for the past 15 years. And when I think about wishes, I think about when I was in early childhood, when I was young around a table with my family, at a birthday party, and blowing out the candle, and wishing for maybe like the latest cabbage patch kid or wishing that I could be a dancer or, you know, some childhood wish that typical children have. Then I remember thanksgiving time, there's more wishes when you dry out the bone from the turkey and then wishing something around that. And then also looking, into star on a summer day, and wishing on the falling star. And at that point, maybe my teens thinking about like the most recent one boyfriend or thinking about prom, you know, my magical experience at prom, those were different wishes then. As I turned older in life, my wishes have gone from those kinds of wishes more materialistic, more of wishy washy wishes, two more things that are more relevant, like happiness and how, and also looking at it as to, instead of wishing for things, appreciating what I have now, I think that's the most important thing instead of wishing, is making sure you appreciate, and you're content with how your life is now and living in the present.
