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”.
