As a few posts roll through my social feeds for an event we were invited to, I feel the slightest pang of “we’re not there”. And it appears as though much fun is being had … as it should be. But we said no. No because, life. And decisions about priorities.
It’s raining here today. And gloomy. And that’s about my least favorite kind of weather, so it’s especially easy to get caught up in fomo. But it’s where we chose to be today. So I sit here on this little bench waiting for our newest family member as she gets groomed for the first time. I’m THAT dog mom that’s refusing to leave and come back later to get her.
Why? Because I know she’s scared. And I’ll be here to greet her and give her plenty of attention as soon as she’s finished. Because that’s what’s important to me.
In the meantime, my top two are hard at work cleaning out the studio. Packing and packing and packing. Boxes and boxes and boxes. So much work, but so much WORTH it!
I spent much of September feeling like we were suffocating. I won’t complain about our work load, as I know firsthand that too much work is a much better problem to have than the opposite.
So we press on. And hustle again today.
Because we’re exactly where we need to be today. We choose to be right here, right now. So that we can be exactly where we need to be tomorrow. And the day after that.
I wait a little longer and scroll through my feeds again, but this time with a different attitude. “so excited for you!” … “have so much fun!” … and “can’t wait to hear more details” become my responses to all the fun images I’m seeing from aforementioned event.
And I mean it! From the bottom of my heart.
After all, they’re the ones that should have fomo.
