In this episode, Laurie talks about the disease of modern people: the fear of missing out. Laurie empowers us to look within and find the passion for which we long. F.O.M.O., as it is called, tricks us into taking opportunity cost where we should not. Unfortunately, it is baked in our technology, marketing, and human nature, which forms a swirl of distraction that leads to lethargy. When we constantly look around at what others are doing, we never end up making the necessary moves that ensure our own success! FOMO is a lie. Laurie explains how we can find real peace in the midst of life’s complexities! .

FOMO - @aprilandvista 🔹
Written on a summer afternoon at Malcom X Park in Washington, D.C., this song is about accepting being in a transitional period and learning to have faith in one’s own ability to transcend suffering.
More personally, the lyrics explore the band’s frustrations surrounding the independent grind.
Happy Sunday!! It’s almost Monday and I am excited for some new jams, are you?
JER: “Sam & Dave Dig A Hole” by author Mac Barnett and illustrator Jon Klassen (one of my favorite artists/authors BTW) is all about expectations and the innate randomness of life. “Sam and Dave are digging a hole and they will not stop until they find something spectacular” (inside front cover). The reader watches in frustration as Sam & Dave narrowly miss digging up larger and larger pink gems. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Are the gems supposed to be the “something spectacular”? Ultimately, “something spectacular” does happen, but not what I expected. Sam & Dave seem to be perfectly pleased with the result, and they are happy to head inside for “chocolate milk and animal cookies” to reminisce over their “spectacular” adventure. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• If there were a narrator or reader of our life, would they look on in frustration as we missed finding increasingly large metaphorical “gems”? Are we missing out on “something spectacular” just out of sight or around the corner? Are we better off finding joy in the magical reality we are experiencing, or should we be fearful that we are missing out in something even more “spectacular”? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I don’t know. But I have recently found a lot of peace in exploring the philosophy of “Stoicism” - which focuses on viewing the world and experiences with a rational mindset. We never know what may happen tomorrow. We can only be sure that we have this moment right now, and we should enjoy it as if it were our last chance: to see our loved one, to see a sunset, to see a full moon, or to wish our fathers a “Happy Father’s Day”. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• To all the DADS out there “Happy Father’s Day!”

Anyone else have a baby with some serious FOMO? My son, now 6, was allllllways awake. Still is... now he wakes at 5:30 am every day 😳 My hope is that he’s some sort of evil genius that just doesn’t require much sleep 😂
Tell me about your little night owls! How old were your kiddos when they finally slept through the night?
I am very fussy about having my picture taken, as anybody who has tried to take photographs of me can attest.
I can find a million faults with any given picture of myself, which according to my mom is because i have an unusually high opinion of myself 😂 i would like to disagree except that its kind of true. (You know the How God Created Me meme? My last ingredient was a tad bit of self confidence- oops; overflow/ 7 spoons/ i forget the phrasing)
I am picky about photographs of myself because i a) dislike living moments behind the lens and i always feel major FOMO about the laughter/ conversation that goes on anytime im getting a picture taken. And b) because i rarely if ever put them up anywhere.
Its later, when i am thinking of putting up a display picture of myself somewhere and find none that i regret being bad at getting my photograph taken.
Its something I've been trying to get better at because i realize that eventually? All you have left of your once-physical, visceral memories are the bad photographs that are never quite as terrible looking back. Neither are the good ones as great.
They just are; a snapshot of a moment you lived through. A pleasant (or unpleasant) rediscovery of a phase in your life. A memory that isn't as all consuming in your mind anymore. A paused second in time where no one grows older, or apart,and nothing changes.
I dont love this picture either, (see original point) and because i refuse to spend time editing my photographs just to live up to impossible beauty standars (not that it makes me better, just lazier), the imperfections of this photograph are irreparable.
But, maybe thats okay. One day, looking back? it wont even matter as much.
I always look at old photos of myself and think about my goals then, and compare them to my goals now. I am constantly checking myself to make sure I am always progressing. I never want to settle. My biggest fear is looking back and saying I wish I did this”. #fearofmissingout ~~~ Sometimes my dreams discourage me, cause I’m like ”there is no way I’m gonna be able to achieve this!” But that soft whisper always comes right on time, “I am the one that placed those dreams in you” 😭 ~~~ I don’t know how you’re gonna do it God, but you do YOU, I’m just the clay. 🙌🏾🙏🏾 #moldme#patience .
„Social Media Can Be Poisonous“ 🍎 - Gerade bei jüngeren Mädchen habe ich schon so oft erlebt, was Social Media Plattformen wie Instagram auslösen können. Wenn ihr den ganzen Tag nur perfekte Körper an Traumstränden und Influencer, die von Kopf bis Fuß in Chanel gekleidet sind, anseht, fühlt ihr euch nicht schön genug und das eigene Leben erscheint fad. Aber ihr dürft niemals vergessen: Auch Instagrammer zeigen nur die Schokoladenseiten und wenn euch bestimmte Accounts sehr belasten, ist es besser ihnen zu entfolgen. Ich selbst habe viele Jahre einer Bloggerin gefolgt, die dann irgendwann ein Kind bekam, was sie enorm für Instagram ausschlachtete. Zudem gefiel mir ihr Helikopter-Erziehungsstil so gar nicht. Nachdem ich mich über Monate über sie aufgeregt hatte, entfolgte ich ihr. Auf einmal fiel dieses Ärgernis weg. Darum wählt mit Bedacht, wem ihr folgt, wer euch ein gutes Gefühl gibt. Dann ist Social Media auch nicht giftig! 📱💻
Hier sind 5 Accounts für euch, die mir ein richtig gutes Gefühl geben: @alexasearth @juleamelie @hellopippa @vanillaholica @todayis_de
Welche Accounts machen euch glücklich? Gebt mir gern Empfehlungen!
FOMO is out and available on iTunes! Why, FOMO?
I love long talks with people. Hearing what life feels like from their side of it. I found myself in lots of conversations about the #fearofmissingout
What it felt like to be somewhere and still wanting to be elsewhere, not out of a certainty that elsewhere was better, but out of something inside of you that says here right now isn’t quite enough. The inner pull that the next best thing isn’t right where you are, but actually somewhere else just out of reach. So, I wrote a song about it lol and hope that people feel more understood. The opposite of more is enough and right where we are can be enough! Happy Listening!
Thank you @jenniemonaco for awesome cover!
Vaivaako «fear of missing out»? Täytätkö päiväsi kaikella mielenkiintoisella, mitä tulee vastaan? Ooh, sehän vois olla mukavaa! Mitäköhän siellä oppisin? Ja tottakai lähden kahville! 🤩🤩🤩🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️Ja hups. Olet kiireisempi kuin koskaan. 🤯Pulssi lyö sataa ja omiin hengähdyshetkiin ei ole aikaa.
Sitten etsit ajanhallinnan vinkkejä. Sleep faster, sanoi Arnold Schwartzenegger joskus puheessaan. Heh. 😏
Itse noudatan sääntöä: « to get your 80%, know your 20%” 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 💛 Tiedän, että oma onnellisuus on 80 % täydellistä, kun annan aikaa perheelleni, mielenkiintoiselle työlle, jossa saa oppia ja olla luova ja omalle hyvinvoinnilleni. 🌸🌸🌸 Kun pidän näistä kolmesta onnen lähteestä kiinni, olen onnellinen. Silloin tällöin hyvin satunnaisesti jää aikaa muullekin, mutta en ota paineita tai stressaa, jos ei jää. 🙏🏻☺️ Rauha on lopulta tunne sydämessä, että et olisi missään muualla mieluummin kuin juuri siinä missä olet nyt tietoisesti valinnut olla. Antamassa aikaa sinulle kaikista tärkeimmille ihmisille. ❤️ #rauha#rauhawellness#kehonrauha#mielenrauha#tärkeimmätihmiset#breathe#lauttasaari#your20%#fearofmissingout
$8,500/$7,500/$9,500... Who cares. It’s the $10,000 wall that should cause massive FOMO once reached. Then the parabolic 2017 $hit starts up again, and you WILL be priced out (think NYC/Paris/London real estate SQAURED). Us humans LOVE round numbers...🤓🙏🏽🤑🚀 #FearOfMissingOut
In trading, a Forex Trader has to stick to their rules and their trading plan. Consistently following their plan and being discplined in their trading methodology is the fastest way to consistent results.
For example, I posted Gold Chart 13 days ago. Some traders thought they missed out on the breakout.
There was/is an opportunity on this RETEST in the form of a pin bar. The pin bar and the RETEST after a breakout are great confluence factors.
Enter after the Pin Bar forms on the horizontal support resistance line.
En français : peur de rater quelque chose. Ce syndrome pousse les internautes à rester connectés non-stop afin de ne passer à côté d’aucun événement marquant, d’une promotion, ou tout autre occasion de s’exprimer sur l’actualité.
Ce syndrome se développe sous la forme d’une anxiété sociale de ne pas être là quand les autres le sont. Cette dépendance est accentuée lors des soldes et périodes de promotions agressives qui surfent sur ce besoin de ne rien rater.
Alors oublions de temps en temps nos téléphones même s’ils sont aussi de précieux outils de travail :) #socialmedia#communucation#fearofmissingout#need#disconnect#trend#tuesday#statistics
For several weeks, my thoughts have been, “Will I ever learn to say no?” I wake up to what I’m doing AFTER I’m sick and burned out. My goal is to stop sacrificing my health on the altar of other people’s expectations or my own FOMO. Now the last couple of days, I’ve been brilliant at graciously saying “no” by keeping in mind and scheduling what I need ahead of time. I’ll take that progress and keep on walking.👍🏼😎🌱🍾💪🏼💃🏻(Repost from @codependents_in_recovery) #imworthit#feellikecelebrating#fearofmissingout#goals#expectations#learntosayno#lessismore
Yep!! Anything that involves a group. I go, but I’ll likely only stay for about 30 minutes and then I’m out. Thankfully, @kelton.19 is worse than me with group things! #joyofmissingout over #fearofmissingout any day of the week! Getting old is THE BEST! Gone are the days of worrying about what other think of that. 🍾🎈
Social norms are tricking us into believing that a busy, stressful schedule is desirable. A peaceful, calm life is considered a waste of your life time. You better read those guidebooks on how to become 250% more efficient, you better not cancel this social gathering even though you‘re feeling tired and would need some rest (you don‘t want to suffer from FOMO aka fear of missing out, right?). I made a similar post a few days ago, but this time I want to focus more on our perception of stress. I used to think that feeling stressed is “normal“. Well, it is, to a certain point. But the moment you start filling your schedule with activities just for the sake of filling your schedule and being or feeling busy, even though it‘s stressing you out, that should be a red flag. Can‘t remember if I have already mentioned this before, but Jeff Bethke once said in a post or on his and his wife’s podcast that he wants to live a boring life. I‘ve been thinking about this statement, stress and pace of life a lot the last few months and have come to realise this:
▪️if something or someone is making you feel stressed (and is not a necessary part of your life + the problem can‘t be solved in any other way), put an end to this and walk away. This is 100% ok.
▪️saying “no“ is necessary and healthy
▪️your schedule does not define the quality of your life. The way you live your life is up to you and should not be measured by social norms.
▪️live in the moment. Even though this sounds like straight outta tumblr. Ever since I have started practicing mindfulness, I have become more calm, being fully aware in plenty of moments and breathing them in and experiencing them deeply with my senses, feeling connected to the present, my mind not being busy with the past or the future. (I may make a longer post on mindfulness sometime.) When I‘m old, I don‘t want to be thinking “I‘m glad I spent my life chasing after what society defines as desirable and feeling stressed out“, but I want to say “I‘m glad I lived my life in my own pace. Maybe I have not done all the things I could have done, but there have been so many moments in which I was absolutely present and felt at peace deep inside.“
NET BEVESTIGD: theatergezelschap House Of Nouws gaat tijdens een existentieel feestje op zoek naar wat je allemaal misloopt als je bang bent om dingen mis te lopen. Voel je de FOMO al? Dit wil je niet missen!
F E A R O F M I S S I N G O U T | ever feel that you are always saying yes to things even if you know mentally or physically your body can't take it? Ever find yourself constantly scrolling through your umpteen social media accounts or people's instastories and feeling inadequate or that on some level you are missing out in some way? Even children I see will take their phone to bed, be on it until the early hours of the morning, keep the volume of their phone on so if it beeps in the night they can reply straight away!Sound familiar? I have thought about this sense of FOMO for a while - the reality is that on some level we all have to miss out on something. Every decision we make may be at the expense of another. We can't go to every single party that is going on in the world. We can't be friends with every single person we meet. We can't eat at all the restaurants in the world. These are just some examples but there are plenty of more. I suppose the message to glean from this is to make decisions for yourself. The time and energy you expend fearing that you are missing out on something can be spent elsewhere. #fomo#fearofmissingout#energy#learntosayno#switchoff#lookafteryourself#energy#wellness#wellbeing#mentalhealth#mentalwellbeing#healthymind#healthymindandbody#lifestyle#healthylifestyle#mind#tuesday#tuesdaymorning
Talkin’ FOMO in the poems today. •
I recently realized that the experiences that are mine are the ones I have, the ones I choose. If I don’t go to something I am not missing out because it is not my experience if I’m not there. In turn, if I do go then that is my experience to have and I am grateful. I struggle badly with indecisiveness, but slowly learning that whatever I choose is just fine because that is where I’ll be! I bring forth the experience of being here and seeing it through my eyes. I contribute the “Kaia” ingredient. The show can go on without me and it won’t be my show and that is just fine. My show is where I am. ✨
😬Fear can be a real blocker in achieving and reaching our potential. For me it’s, “what I if I get it wrong”, or “what will others think of me?” Often the story I tell myself behind my fears is well off what really happens as well 🤔. Yet even though I know this, it still lurks hidden, ready to pounce.
My wife has many giftings and talents, but the one that's been hidden for far too long is her songwriting ability. Here's a snippet from her first single! Drops June 14! It's been a privilege and an honor to work on this track with the love of my life! So proud of my girl! -JG
Thanks @jenniemonaco for the album art! ✨😍🙌🏼
