The day's soup du jour seems to be fear mongering. Now, season that hot mess with a dash of digital distraction. Mmm, mmm, good... does it sound tasty or just plain nasty?
I can remember this fear with hesitations and reservations when I had to stay home for house chores instead of going to the game with friends. They always had to say that disappointing phrase, "Man, you should have been there!"
Committing to knowing you are exactly in the right time and space is one way of pushing aside the fear of missing out.
