Millennials (What can we learn?)

Millennials

If you were born in the early Eighties to the mid nineties, then your label is one. I think! ๐Ÿค”

With traits such as,

Being overly confident.

Or at least pretending to be.

Preaching tolerance…. till the next ‘attack’….

Having a sense of entitlement,

while being incredibly narcissistic…

Demanding that everyone needs to be a winner.

No more first,second, or third place, because that causes low self esteem.

These are your basic stereotypical Millennials. Mind you…

That all seems just awful. Doesn’t it?

But what are some positive traits?

Because no Generation is perfect…we all have flaws.

I’m told that I have a lot of Baby Boomer ideas and thoughts. (I’m not a Baby Boomer, btw)

But I have always seen that as a compliment because I feel like that age group has always been most authentic.

Next to their parents, The Silent Generation. Aka’ Greatest Generation Ever…

I love spending time with older people.

Baby Boomers and up. They are my favorites.

I can listen to their stories for hours on end, absorbing every one of them!

Isn’t It ironic that many Baby Boomers are the parents of the Millennials. I’m still

Trying to wrap my head around that one.

That said, my parents are both Baby Boomers. I suppose that’s why I fall somewhere in between. I have a lot of different traits and ideas about life. And I’m forever changing them. Always self reflecting and trying to improve.

There are many things I love about what the Millennials seem to have accomplished though.

Well, besides making sandwiches and Avocado toast, daily staples. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What I admire most-is their mind frame of working less to play more.

Being your own boss.

Being financially set, and many hard working ones owning their own home before age twenty-five.

Not needing a degree to have a dream Job.

Thinking outside the box.

Not following in their parents footsteps, because that is what was expected of them.

Doers, not dreamers.

They make things happen!

I guess it’s because they are loud.

I admire that and support that 110%

I love the doers not dreamers part the most.

Trying and failing is better then not trying at all.

Risk Takers!

Millennials are risk takers.

They are not savers, but spenders.

Spending on life experiences, mostly.

We each have a huge life to live, so why not spread our wings and not limit ourselves.

I think they have a wealth of knowledge, despite all the negatives.

Again, what Generation is without flaws? Zero!

Sure, maybe they don’t know how to cook, clean, can, maintain healthy relationships, or change a tire.

But they are always in a learning mode.

After all, Google is only a click away.

Who needs a healthy relationship anyways.

Kidding of course… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Story Time:

My daughter asked me yesterday what my least favorite job as a teenager.

I told her it was when I lied, and got hired at a Home Depot type of store.

In the interview I told the guy that I knew a lot about construction.

So I had builders come in and ask me questions on how much wood they would need. Questions about different bolts and screws. Paint.

I was clueless!

I ended up quitting after two weeks.

Even if it was a high paying job, at $5.75 per hour. ๐Ÿ˜

My daughter looked confused that I told her that I quit because I just didn’t know the answers.

She then asked me why I didn’t just Google them?! ๐Ÿคฃ
