When school starts, and I pack my kid’s lunches, I always finish them off with a special note to encourage them in the day.
For instance, with my youngest Kassie I did a bunch of K’s that I think are special for her!
My kids say that it is a moment in the day — among hard work, getting teased, and questioning their confidence — that they pause to know that someone really cares for them!
As I was thinking about how my oldest daughter carefully folds and saves each note, I wondered how much we all need that encouragement.
But then I thought — do we do this each day — through Twitter? For instance, when I share quotes or welcome the beautiful sunrise, is that the same?
Is that the new form of the lunch box note?
What do you think?
I am seeing this “Fear of Missing Out” growing and emerging as a new stress point. With everyone watching social networks, where people only post the “great things”,
This phenomenal has become so common that it was placed in the dictionary in 2013. FOMO is defined as the “anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on a social media website.”
So that you do not get caught up in this new theme, here’s some tips:
My kids were at their grandparents the last week and so to keep in touch we did a series of “dubsmash’ videos to communicate.
Yes, we discovered this through my Brother and Sister in Law and have had a blast doing it!
Just a fun Wed tip!
Go to the AppStore and look for DubSmash. It is fun!
