Fear of Missing Out

As a general rule, I don’t feel like I have to do what everybody else is doing. But sometimes, you know, sometimes I feel like I’m missing out. Right now many of my blogger friends are in Chicago at BlogHer. This time last year I was there with Crystal, having a blast in NYC. This year, I’m in NC with my husband and son having a blast.

It’s different. And my trip is absolutely wonderful.

But I’m sitting here wondering what I am missing out on.

Parties and sessions, hanging out between events, Voices of the Year keynotes, and swag galore… One on one fun with computer-turned-real-life friends, naps if I feel like it, and drinks at the bar with total strangers.

I fear missing out on the fun.

But what I would fear the most, if I had gone there this year, is missing out on the amazing fun I am having this weekend. And THAT fun is bigger and better than anything else that’s out there.
