From FOMO to JOMO…Say Goodbye to The Fear and Anxiety of Missing Out!

I’m sure you’ve heard of the term: “FOMO” which is the “Fear of Missing Out” but I’d like to share with you my new Mantra: “JOMO” which is the “Joy of Missing Out”!!

FOMO can be defined as: the anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere. It can often be aroused by posts seen on a social media or by hearing of activities or events others are partaking in and that you might miss out on something!

Whereas JOMO can be defined as: the pleasure gained from enjoying one’s current activities without worrying that other people are leading more fulfilled lives or that you might “miss” something important.

I can say that for me, it seems that my level of FOMO has exponentially increased over the past few years.

And it hasn’t felt good.

Anyone who knows me knows I’m an extremely ambitious person and strive to have all aspects of my life in 5th gear at all times so I guess I’ve often felt like I need to “get out there” and not miss anything – whether it be just a good time that others are having or maybe an important opportunity for either my personal or professional growth.

Yet I’m happy to now say that I’m now at a point where I don’t want to feel that constant high-pressure tension any more. PLUS I have always aspired to be “inner-directed” and tap into my own interests, intuition and desires to determine my activities and how I choose to spend my time rather than “outer-directed” and constantly reacting to everything in my environment – so releasing the need to not “miss” something has been huge for me.

Switching my thoughts, actions and energy from the frantic, stressed “doing” and running around like a crazy person to the more inner-directed, trusting and confident self brings a peace unlike any other.

Yet I will warn you, to be able to make the switch requires that you have faith in a bigger, stronger, benevolent force outside yourself that is is control and wants only what’s best for all. It is the trust and belief in this force that allows you to relax, feel confident and know that all you need to do, be and have will find it’s way to you at the right time and that YOU ARE ENOUGH.

It is the peace that surpasses all understanding* and will help switch you too from FOMO to JOMO!

Remember friends: You can not be “left out” from what’s destined for you.:)

Hope this helps,
