Why I'm so Damn Proud to be a Millennial
Random Thoughts Archive
Alright so this thought kinda came out of the blue (as in I was sitting on the sofa, reviewing my emails and waiting for dinner to cook), when it dawned on me that I actually LOVE being a Millennial! HAHA yea I'm laughing at myself just typing that out. Millennial's don't necessarily have the best rep either! I mean we are considered Lazy, unmotivated and privileged to say the least. But ever since finding out that I fall smack dab in the middle of the millennial era (which is technically 1981-1996 who knew!) I've worn the title with pride!
And here's why:
Okay, so we were born into a time where internet and social connection EXPLODED. Yea most of us seem "unmotivated", but that's because along side this new world of global connection and networking, is an education and employment system that's completely failed us!
were taught to conform to the middle class, to settle for 9-5 work that's not even available when we finally finish 4+ years of overpriced education that we can't even afford, to be stuck living with debt until retirement. While the global entrepreneurial business structure is booming around us, where gen-z teens are now making money posting Mukbang videos on YouTube! (What a life to live by the way).
We millennial's were stuck in limbo between the old ways of our grandparents and the new digital age that hasn't been entirely accepted until just recently. No wonder millennial's come off as "unmotivated and lazy!" . We have these ideas that suit the new way of life but we are raised by tradition and old education.
We're not lazy, we're just lost.
So why am I so proud to call myself a millennial ?
Simply put, we (little to our knowledge) are the leading generation to a new world! We hold the power and the inspiration to achieve great things and become the entrepreneurs of our dreams! Remodelling the education system, having the freedom and the power to think what we want, be who we want , do what we want, and have a positive impact on this earth! But of course we need a big boost in the right direction first.
This year has taught me so much already (yes it's only been two months but hear me out!)
I've learned to focus my time and my energy towards objectives that satisfy my inner self. I've learned patience, determination and most of all, leadership.
These traits are in every one of us, we just need to stop being so negatively affected by our older generations (no offence), and stop feeling so ashamed by our "wild imagination".
You have no reason NOT to wake up in the morning and work towards greatness. You owe it to yourself!
So embrace your creative side, do what makes you the happiest and fulfill your own dreams. (That's truly how you're going to get out of that minimum wage job after all).
But I'm curious to know, are any of you millennial's? How do you feel about the stigma posed on us? And most importantly, what are you doing to better your life?? Let me know!
