Observing a new generation develop before your eyes is quite fascinating, especially when they are your kids. Their generation is called millennials, and from my experience, I feel this is only a tag put to define a specific group, for purposes like research, study, or other, and while all together they may look alike, one must remember that any demographic is composed of individuals that sometimes look like they belong and sometimes don´t to the ways and decisions of their peers.


It also means that as humans, independent of your age, or upbringing, you can have your own personality that may mix with characteristics from previous generations like baby boomers, or even be inspired by the next ones, like the Z generation. This is being nomadic and interchangeable with other generations and learning.

As a coach, not always our efforts at home do work to grasp it all yet sharing some of your family time with older generations, and the next younger ones is very humbling and enlightening to make you grow, course correct, and develop adventure skills like going nomad at any age or coming back home too! You can and are allowed to ask for help, from your parents and friends, and we are also allowed to ask for opinions and perspectives from our kids as well. Infinite possibilities are born and are to be celebrated when you reach out, starting in your own family, and then the world around you.


What I notice, specifically in two domains, like travel and therapy, is how uncomplicated millennials can be, first, on deciding to hit the road on a whim, for travel or work, and secondly, taking action to nurture their relationships in a very straightforward way. It would take me a lot of logistic and planning way back then to travel and go nomad, the resources were limited, on one hand, yet on the other, you felt an immense sense of accomplishment and effort this is important and worth sharing with our kids, just as a motivation and a glimpse from where you came from because experience is something personal and unique.


These are two major areas that require courage and challenge and both nurture our soul and our social relations: travel and coaching, or therapy, depending on your need. In some cases, I feel they can be synonyms, right you usually do come back from a trip recharged, uplifted, and full of new ideas!


What I see today is so many millennials seeking and hiring a pro for every little and big aspect of their lives this is very useful and needed, mostly when one is dealing with big decisions like health issues or buying a home, and you want to get as many opinions as possible and facts related to your specific matter. I have seen this with my kids, and it has been game-changing. I am so grateful for this.


One of the advantages of marrying young, in my case – and obviously if you choose to do so and if life presents you with your fun partner and friend is that you sort of dive full-on and want to be part of almost everything your loved one does I call it conscious enmeshment guided by enthusiasm.


And this is my point to be human and to truly find what moves us to build, create and work towards something, one must at times jump first, consult our internal compass, our heart. This goes for relationships and connections. After you get your answer from within, you will then be more likely to discuss and listen to the matter with pros, without letting yourself do something that is not what you aligned yourself inside to do or go.


While I think therapy and all pro help and counseling are very helpful and lifesaving in many cases and please do ask for help now if you are depressed or have some serious mental issue I urge couples to reach out to one another too and open their hearts. The intimacy and growth will be faster and even improve the journey to find professional help that is a good fit to you, or the couple.


Further ahead, as time goes by and you feel the need to build more space for your personal journey, and desire to become less enmeshed with one another, while still being loving, you will derive great pleasure in knowing and feeling that you have completed a lovely cycle and are ready to build your relationship in a richer and deeper way. For each season there is a time, for each situation, there is an approach from coaching, to therapy, to finding a group that relates to you. The nomadic journey is yours to choose and to select the support that puts a smile on your face and brings meaning to your amazing life.


Good change and growth are always welcome, even bumps are a way of putting us back on track, renovated, and stronger. You may feel like swapping your mentorship or shrink. You may want to become a nomad or settle down.


With all the helpful technology in the world, excellent professionals, courses, advisors I say yes go for it, learn, and grow, yet hold tight to your inner knowledge and intuition, have faith in your unique personal formula, and share your lovely discoveries to inspire others around you.


A new generation may bring speed and outreach, another, some relaxation, and perspective and pause. Take it all in, find time to tell one another, the previous and the next generations in your house, or at work, that everything is ok, you are just fine the way you are, hang in there.


I love how interchangeable and different this learning can happen by being an example and inspiration to each other persisting and investing in understanding who you are and who the other person beside you is too.
