    I always love these posts! You find some great reads! I too was hit by that video! Personally struggling with some of our commitments right now and wanting to leave room to be wide open. It is a tricky balance!

    The FOMO video definitely made me think. I’m pretty sure I’m guilty of FOMO behavior as well. Or more precisely, I think I don’t choose because I”m afraid I will fail at what I chose. I guess that’s kind of the same thing? Making a choice is definitely hard!

      You’re absolutely right. I also find myself delaying on making a decision because I’m scared I’ll fail. But the real failure is in not trying at all.

    Whoa, that video about FOMO was mind-blowing! And so true… Not choosing leaves the possibilities open and yes, I think I do that sometimes. Okay, maybe more than I thought.

      Yes, we all have FOMO sometimes–me too! I’m working on making decisions and being happy with my choices. It’s the only way I’ll make progress.
