The Mint on FOMO!

Good morning!

I did not walk this morning; instead, I slept in until nearly 6:30. Just look at those steps from yesterday!  In addition to having a good step-day, I worked, I made a quick welcome home stop at my parent’s house, I ran to a store to look for something to wear for my nephew’s wedding on Saturday; I think I found a backup outfit.  When I came out of the store there were storm rumblings, and I prayed that it would hold off at least until I got into my next event, which turned out to be a wonderful networking event held by my friends Gwen Miller and Nancy McAlpine of Middleburg bank (had to give them a plug!). I left by 6:30 in order to make the first Communication Committee Meeting for my community.

<Imagine the sound of screeching brakes here>

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”  -Ambrose Redmoon

I know this quote seems to be a little out of place this morning, but here is how it fits in.  It has to do with my friend Ben, who came up with a new word for the dictionary: FOMO.

F – Fear

O – Of

M – Missing

O – Out

The word means Fear Of Missing Out.  I know, it sounds like a disease and my sister, Nancy, says that I have a terminal case of it.  Of course, the main reason for joining the Communication Committee is that I have FOMO.  I want to know everything about my community.  What I did not expect was the idea that I might end up as chairperson, which is a scary thought!  When I first read this quote this morning, although I appreciated it, I could not think how it applied to me now until I remembered FOMO.  I will confess to you that the fear of taking on the role of chairperson is not as important as my terminal case of FOMO!

Here are my questions for you this morning.  What drives you?  What are you so passionate about that it is more important then your fear.  Please feel free to share your thoughts

AffirMINTion: I am courageous

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to!

Life is good!

  1. FOMO definately describes you Deb – I know your friend Ben has it too. You also have FONK – fear of not knowing and it is really bad when you have FOMOFONK ha ha ha ha ha
