The Search for Generation X

The "middle child" strikes back

The Journey Begins

Let us start with the truth.  WordPress created the title of this post, the pithy quote and the sunset photo.  So far, totally worth the $8 a month.  This brings me to my second truth, I can be a little lazy.  Correction… I am a firm believer in the “smarter not harder” philosophy of life.

I am 52 years old.  My student loans are paid and my husband and I are thisclose to paying off the mortgage.  I have worked for the same company for over a decade and have worked my way up to a management role.  I have friends and family that I love and I am grateful for every day.  And yet.. there is an “and yet”.  What does this mean?  I am suddenly evaluating my life and realizing I want more and less.  For example: more time for fun, less time worrying.

Why is the name of my blog “The Search for Generation X” (generationxlost.com)?

  • Because I thought it was a cool title (sometimes things are that simple).
  • Because I want to meet and spotlight other Gen-Xers that are fulfilling their role in the universe.
  • By meeting these people, I may get a clearer understanding of my role in the universe as a Gen-Xer.

So… If you are reading this and are a part of Generation X and want to tell your story contact me.

By the way, I am using 1965 through 1981 as my Gen-X range.  With that said, I am considering Barack Obama as the first Gen-X President of the United States.  A President that has Hip-Hop on his playlist gets a “youth pass”.
