Raise your hand if you've ever felt the fear of missing out (FOMO) creep in…

You know that nagging voice that says you “should” be doing more, seeing more, and achieving more? That gnawing feeling that your life is somehow incomplete if you're not constantly chasing the next hot thing?

As an ambitious woman juggling it all, FOMO can hit hard. You see those “perfect” stories on social media and start doubting your own path. Before you know it, you’re saying “YES” to everything out of desperation not to miss a single opportunity.

As someone who used to be plagued with FOMO, let me tell you…

That frantic hustle is actually holding you back from true fulfillment. Running yourself ragged to “keep up” only breeds burnout, resentment, and feeling disconnected from your own desires.

The good news? I was blessed to learn how to transform such fear into joy – and I’ll walk you through it today!

“When I'm thinking of [the] fear of missing out… I am thinking of the overextension of yourself – the committing to events or projects that aren't really focused on where you are in your life and where you want to be.” [7:11]

“You do not have to satisfy everybody's expectations at the expense of your own well-being. Your life is about embracing your choices, finding satisfaction in living a life that feels good to you, and finding joy in your current life, because as far as we all know, we only get one of them.” [10:13]

“[The joy of missing out] is about giving myself permission to push off the pressure of having to have that constant busyness – the relentless need for constant connectivity, the perpetual questions of what others are doing, where they're headed, where I should be, and who I should be with. And it's about celebrating my decision to skip a party or even a family event if needed.” [13:18]
