This is a really great piece, Julia. So much truth. Then again, our experience comes from a different time. One in which the world moved vastly slower and we had way less in the way of comparison to believe we were failing.

Millennials are made to believe (by advertising, by their parents and teachers, by wealthy creatins holding political office….) that they’re competing. With everyone. For a slice of a very small pie. The truth is though, they have the opportunity to create a whole new pie for themselves. There are no limits. It’s a vast cosmos of opportunity. It’s our task to give to them the tools and imagination they need to create a niche they can own. That’s what those of us in our later decades can pass on to these wonderful creatures. This piece is a little bit of that sort of encouragement. Thank you.
