Well, I might stretch it till Wednesday.
It almost seems like the universe is playing a mean joke on us as some of our most notable and beloved icons are seemingly taken away, for various reasons. But when it is all said and done, we have two assurances in this life: death and taxes. (insert groan here)
Being the mother of three bumbling baby teenagers has taught me over and over again the lesson of seeing a glass half full rather than half empty. They live, they breath and they exemplify all the positivity of a generation that has been dealt a rather dark and dismal hand at that.
We’ve bankrupt their chances for decent healthcare, never mind the phenomenal cost of higher education and yet, I’ve got a senior in high school who insists on making her mark in the world through art and music.
I argue the practicality of getting a decent job with decent wages, she in turn hands me 20 college applications, the FAFSA website link and all the while playing yet another round of scales on $99 beginner’s viola she’s had since the 7th grade.
She and her generation have been dubbed ‘Generation Z’, post millennials, living in a post 9/11 society, fed and nurtured by the internet, and raised by the social media moguls of our time. And yet, with all of the world accessible, literally at our fingertips, deep down inside, we are pretty much made out of the same fiber.
We hope, we dream, we love, we lose and when we fall, by golly, we lick our wounds, stand and begin again. If there ever was a teenage idol I hoped or aspired to be, it would be the very best version of teenaged Wendz. (seriously, I was totally hot.)
After all, we are the only ones who have the power to limit ourselves and our imagination. So if you aspire to be, then aspire to be the very best you.
