Generation Y Not

In our parents’ generation if a man hit 50 and left his job for something entirely different, it was said he was having a “mid-life” crisis. Fast forward to today and by this definition the “mid-life” crisis would seem to have become the “30’s” crisis. A lot of my friends in their 30’s are re-evaluating some aspect of their life. But is it actually a crisis? For those of you who don’t already know, I used to be a disgruntled lawyer (bang, horror, shock!), and when Juliette was born it was the most powerful motivator for examining what was making me unhappy about my career. I believed that being a good role model meant having the courage to make a change, and I was lucky to have the opportunity to do so. But my story is not uncommon. If you look around you, you are likely to find many thirty somethings taking big leaps. Our generation is often referred to as entitled and narcissistic, but it takes confidence and flexibility to reinvent yourself, which also makes Generation Y progressive and creative. So no folks, we are not having a crisis, we are seizing the moment! As The Who would say, this is my generation, this is my generation baby.
