Some like the number 13.. While others don’t!
Which one are you??
Just the number.. Not Friday!
Would love to have your comments..
All of us at One True Blue…
It takes One to make a difference!!!
We are the Ones who belong to GenX.. Generation X..
Yes well, I recently found out that I, myself, belonged to a generation that actually has a name. GenX. Fancy that!! Do I live on another planet or what??!!
So I felt like the chosen One.. It was my new purpose in life, to make a statement. I literally took it to heart. Hahah!! I laugh at myself when I remember the “Call to arms” mood I felt. Wonder woman, move aside!!
Oh, wait! Let me explain why I felt this way… So sit back, have a coffee, tea or even a drink and enjoy the read..
Well, it seems that GenX is somewhat the “middle child”, the lost generation; those of us born between 1961 and 1981. Seriously..
This is what most of the research and articles I have read say.. So it must be true.. In a sense, well, it does.. What with being caught in the middle between the Baby Boomers (1946 – 1960) and the Millennials (1982-2000). Those last ones sure do move fast. Too fast for my tired bones, however much energy I have.. But I can still try to do it at my own pace, and it will be awesome! Applause, pls… Loll.. I’m still on a mission here!!
To find the “lost” bunch, meaning us, and have our voices heard!
And in the process of doing so, I realized that just me, nahhh… won’t work! GenX people are busy busy bees (myself included). And in no way can I compete with those youngsters.. And do this on my own..
Hence, thank you Alexandre Dumas for so eloquently putting it; “All for One and One for all, United we Stand, Divided we Fall”!
Feel better already..
Why “One True Blue”?? Well, and following up on my reading, most articles define GenX as the loyal, faithful generation.. We like something like a brand, a restaurant, a shop, a site, etc… we stick to it.. We are built this way.. Most of us, anyway.. “True Blue” means in addition to loyal and faithful, dedicated and committed.. Therefore, what better word to describe us Ones? Yup… “One True Blue”.. For you… Remember Madonna’s “True Blue, Baby I love you”.. That one; yessss… whom most of us grew up listening to!
Believe me.. It was not as easy as I put it here.. Oh noo… It took a lot of thinking, research and perseverance to find a name to define and represent the blog. To have a nice ring to it, and to find the domain name in .com available.. Boy, most nice names are just out of the market!!
Finally, “One True Blue”!! We tried the group blog, for 4 months. But it was a difficult task. Hence for now (who knows what will happen in the future, right?) this is going to become my personal platform, where I can post for my friends..
To conclude, yes finally, I do need to stop, otherwise… On one important note, this is probably one of the few lengthier articles.. “One True Blue” are quick reads, quick tips and answers.. So, thank you so much for joining me, and for sharing my life journeys with me, and for trusting me with your thoughts..
Looking so forward to our mutual exchange, and to making “One True Blue” your favorite GenX blog.
Cheers, and here’s to all of u!! 💕💕
