I was speaking with an elder the other day and he was spitting a lot of good knowledge but really coming down hard on ‘my generation’ as they often do. As usual I listened intently because you never want to miss a rant from an elder. No matter how over the top it may be on the surface, there are always small take aways or bits of knowledge that can be applied.
“You all have no direction. You have no sense of purpose, no sense of what hard work is. You use circumstances as an excuse to be still and not fight for your dreams. It’s sad.” He ranted.
I think a lot about my ‘generation.’ I think about whether or not we have taken full advantage of what’s out there. Have we used ALL of the resources provided to us? Are we lazy? Or do we have a drive that those of another older generation may not understand?
