In an age that suffers from FOMO [fear of missing out] it is no surprise to me that we can get in a tizzy, worked up, personally bothered & anti-something [or anything].
We insert ourselves into people’s lives as if they were our own — “I mean, I know everything about them [I follow them on Instagram] surely I’m granted a fair opinion on their affairs.”
Fixation on others vs. sharpening ourselves? Most definitely.
Our days allow for so much opportunity, possibility, sights, acts of kindness, growth & yet we swell our well with the thoughts, actions, food choices, political stances, relationship updates & opinions [on everything] of others.
I raise my hand — I am as guilty as the rest & like everything >> balance is required. B U T a challenge to myself: self reflect, pray, read, write, sing, laugh & be present more + troll less.
My life is now >> I’m not about missing out.
