Grateful Sunday #88: Rapt & the Very Apparent

Data gathered by the Pew Research Center suggest that, in their own self-interest and for the common good, the eighteen- to twenty-five-year-olds who comprise the so-called Generation Next may need to focus on developing concern for others. They’re more socially and politically liberal than the Generation Xers who preceded them, but their overriding goal is to become rich and famous. “It’s all me, me, me and pleasure, pleasure, pleasure, but there’s lots of evidence that that’s what makes people unhappy.”

Gratitudes:

Probably why my generation at large seems to be ever on a stereotypical “quest for meaning.”  Fame and fortune are not the end-all be-all.  Invest more attention in your fellow man, and less in narcissistic pursuits.

Grateful for a little more awareness & a little deeper understanding of my life.
