Hello fellow travelers! Welcome to our little cage on the web. Doug and I were born right in the middle of the Gen X baby downloads.
A lot has changed since the 1970s, and we sometimes feel unmoored from life. We’ve learned that the typical path in life is anything but typical anymore.
There’s some searching and introspection that must be done to find meaning in life, and that’s where we come to the rescue!
We’re starting out by sharing our decisions, struggles and revelations resulting from being Gen X monkeys in a modern world. You can use our thought exercises to gain some insight into yourself.
In fact, we’ll present them as step by step guides that encourage your own self discovery.
What makes you happy? What do you want to be when you grow up? How can I make a living doing what I love? If you’re like us, you’ve asked yourself these questions and many more, and have answered ” I don’t know”. The models we learned as little monkeys in the 70s do not work anymore. We, all of us from the pre-plugged in generations, have to find contentment on our own. It isn’t being handed out with a gold watch anymore…
The goal in life isn’t to reach adulthood. It’s about reaching youhood. So, grab a pen, read along and do the exercises. Find out who you are and what you want… Learn to be happy. Doug and I are not some fuzzy gurus with all the answers (yet), but we’re asking important questions of ourselves, sharing the answers and guiding you along if you care to join us. We’ll be branching out to cover other topics in the future too. We’re still growing. Well, Doug is as big as he’s going to get, but he’s growing on the inside.
Doug can’t type. He has no fingers. So, from now on I may refer to us blog monkeys, as I, us, we, and/or Doug. It’s all the same. We confer on posts and content. I promise, it makes sense in my head!
Oh, about the 7.3 welcomes. I read somewhere that the most read posts always have x number of this or 10 trillion of that in the titles. So, I’m not sure we reached 7 welcomes, but I’m confident we delivered on the .3… Congratulations! You’re on your way to monkey contentment.
Ready to create the life you really want? Come on then!
