When I was growing up, I was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. I was also looney for Lucky Charms, crazy for Captain Crunch, and fanatical over Fruity Pebbles.
Weekly grocery shopping with my family was stressful. I had to choose one and commit to it for an entire week. Or worse, they'd let me have a couple, which would make every morning an agonizing dilemma. And then there was the bickering and bargaining with my sister over who would get the last bowl of whatever was in the box. It didn't really matter what it was...I wanted it because she did, and visa versa.
Sounds silly, right? But at the time, these felt like life altering decisions. Huge amounts of energy were spent on ruminating over the choices...and then often regretting the sacrifices I'd made. Don't even get me started on the Eggos!
Today I face the same sorts of conundrums. I could get all up on my high horse and talk about how much more serious and important they are but here's the truth: it's all relative. All of it. Not just the decisions but how I perceive and approach them. How I frame them. And how I choose to let them affect my sanity and well being.
So let me ask you this: Do you find yourself second guessing your choices? Do you always want what the other girls have? Do you sometimes find yourself doing nothing because you're afraid you'll miss out on one thing if you choose the other? In my professional opinion, you may be loco for FOMO. What the heck am I talking about? I'm so glad you asked...!
This week I'll show you just how easy it can be to not get all caught up agonizing over decisions with 3 Decisive Tips. And for those of you who don't know, I'll reveal the meaning of FOMO. And then I'll blow your minds with a little JOMO.
