Millennials, Centennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers, Silent Generation are the most common terms of different generations we hear nowadays based on year you were born. Oh no, I will not reveal where I belong because I call myself Fillennials. (Feeling Millennials JJJ)
Looks like the world is being ruled by Millennials nowadays. These are the young generations from age 22-40 years old. Technology evolves around their time and their batches are considered more empowered, fiercer, more independent and the big factor is because technology is at their fingertips. Whether we like it or not, that’s the biggest advantage they have to other generations before their time. However; humanity becomes less and less of essence.
As I reflect for the last ten years; technology did a tremendous turn in our daily lives both personal and professional. Social media becomes the platform of our daily lives. Almost everything electronic makes it possible to do the jobs get done. Yes, I get that. I remember how I can’t travel because I have to do my job in the office. Now, I can do all transactions anytime anywhere in the world. How cool is that? Friends I’ve lost; now I found through social media. However, I considered the previous generation as the real essence of existence.
I get to play outside with my friends, get wet by the rain and perspire under the sun. I go home at night time, eat dinner with the family, exchanging stories and laughter at the dining table. I enjoy dinner talking with each other. Because I am human.
I experienced receiving love letters, giggled, blush at the sight of my ultimate crush. Having a relationship by spending quality time and getting to know each other until deciding to spend the rest of your life with the person you love. Because I am human.
The joy of seeing a family or friends because you have not seen or talked with each other for a long time. Then you spend quality time with each other. The means of communication is by sharing and exchanging your thoughts and ideas while spending quality time. Because I am human.
I don’t use LOL when something is funny because I laughed as hahaha, hehehe or hihihi. Have you heard somebody laughed as lol lol lol? Because I am human.
I write as I speak; I do my own grammar and spell check. It may not be perfect so I consult dictionary and grammar rules if necessary. I can do math without a calculator unless we are talking about geometry and those other types of Mathematics that only scientific calculators have the answers. Because I am human.
I used to wash my clothes manually and still do the dishes the way it has to be up to this time. Because I am human.
I meet my clients the first time and meet up with them especially when I need to explain a document that they need to sign. I have to make sure I provided value to them and they feel how important they are to me Because I am human.
I disagree with creating another human being through artificial procedures. For me, creating another human from conception to the day he was born is the biggest essence of our existence. Because I am human.
Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy what technology brought to us all these years and made our lives easier. I consider myself a tech savvy in my own way. Inventions are wonderful, the work of science and technology are unimaginable; they are necessary to this way of life we live in. The list could go on and on but the message is clear. We are human. We need to disconnect so we can connect. Communication is not by sending the message but the thoughts and the hearts that go with it. Let us not be like robots in the future where everything will be run by technology and our life fully depends on it. What if one day, you wake up and the global network is down. Can you survive? One thing for sure; previous generations will. Because we’ve been there done that!!
