I follow some pretty kick butt stay at home moms on social media, one of my all time favs (and literally she probably has no idea) is the one and only PopTart Diaries. I pretty much live vicariously through her and all the cool mom group friends she’s made. You know, those Insta girls that end up becoming your Insta friend.
Anyways, I was thinking, how cool is it to have the label stay at home mom, it really has its own community. And then I got thinking well, I actually get to be a Stay at Home Gen Y.. and that’s something you’ve probably never heard of. Like ever.
I love what I get to do, and I love that I get to do my life first in and around my biz.. and then a lot of the times it becomes the perfect work life mix, all in one. Stay at home Gen Y.. what’s the requirements for that? And how is that even possible without a massive trust fund account?
Stay at home for all intensive purposes as a Gen Y means anything but that.. more like a go to the gym in the middle of the day, wake up early just cause you can, binge watch Making a Murderer on Monday Afternoon, join the 10 am Yoga class, working on a girls self-esteem charity, Starbucks Strolling, non-two week vacationer, read lots of books just because, Gen Y.
And that’s an option I wish was taught in school, the kind where you can have your cake and eat it too. A life lived to the fullest on your own terms, and one where you can still give back.
And no, I don’t get to live off of a massive trust fund account. Bring on the stay at home Gen Y.
