By now you’ve probably heard of FOMO, or the Fear Of Missing Out. Yep, it appears we have successfully made our junior-high insecurities into a celebrated phenomenon. Personally, I’m not okay with carrying my adolescent anxieties into my midlife evolution and beyond.
Recently I learned of JOMO, or the Joy Of Missing Out. This too is becoming a cultural sensation, but this one validates. It’s a repurposed Just Say No–a transformed teenage-era catch phrase that still resonates with my ripening self.
Either fear-based or grounded in peace. We get to choose, and thus create our lives. Either way.
