You ever hear your elders or a random senior say, “your generation is just so lazy. In my day…”
The more I think about it the more I realize they are right. Especially us women of this generation. The women before us have fought for so many rights and privileges that we have now, such as, voting, the ability to work, property rights, the right to use birth control (yes you read that right!), and many others. We take many of these for granted. There are very little things now that we must fight for, and in return we have become a very lazy generation. We all dream of having so much in our lives, but how many of us really push our selves to the limit to get what we desire? How many of us “fight” to reach our goals? We want the world handed to us on a silver platter. This brings us back to an older post, “I am Obsessed.” (If you haven’t read it, I suggest you do.) We need to begin to “taste” our desires, become obsessed, crazed, however you want to describe it, in order to really get what we want. Nothing is going to be handed to us! We have to dream hard, work hard, fight hard, and only then will we get what we desire in life. But first we must get out of this lazy state of mind. Think about the women who came before us and how hard they’ve worked, so we don’t have to struggle like they did. Think of all the girls who will be coming after you and the path you can pave for them.
