Sweet sixteen? As I ponder the Millennial, we are now 16 years in. It is like a child who is growing and changing. In our youth there is all the innocence of a child as they learn and grow.
As they enter their middle teen years, 13-15, they start striving for independence and there is a lot of struggles and conflicts often with parents, teachers and peers as they work to figure out who they are and start demanding their freedom. It is a time of increased peer pressure as well. Then the sweet sixteen arrives.
Sweet sixteen is celebrated as a coming of age so to speak. It is a time when we can now get a driver’s license and sign our own consents.
So here we are in the millennial, in our coming of age! So what is 2016 and your coming of age going to look like? Are you going to go for your dreams? Are you going to drive your own life? Are you going to give yourself consent to go for those pictures you have in your head?
How are you going to take care of your relationships both at home and in the workplace? Common of age comes with it’s responsibilities as well. We get our driver’s license but that also means we must follow the rules and the laws of the road, including those set out by our family. So just as we enter 2016 and we choose to follow our goals, dreams and aspirations, let’ not lose site of the most important relationships in your life!
It is time of great potential? Are you going to control it or is it going to control you? How will you fill yourself up to continue to serve those around you? Sweet sixteen is full of potential! Will you set your goals and follow through for the dreams you are aspiring to?
