FOMO

Ah the first day of school… Totally not going to lie, I found myself combing through the dozen photos and posts of my facebook friends sending their children off to their first day of Kindergarten yesterday. I know, I know, I don’t want children right this second (take a deep breath, mom), but I couldn’t help but feel the constant little tug on my heart, wishing that I could have partaken in the same emotions that many of my friends experienced yesterday as parents. Maybe it was my socially constructed biological clock ticking, or maybe it was the typical bi-monthly fear of missing out (FOMO) garnered from stalking everyone’s highlight reel online, but whatever the reason, yesterday had me feeling sort of down.
