Flow Life Lesson 9

flow life lessons

For more than ten years now, Flow has been promoting the message to live life slower. To seek happiness in the little things and to embrace life with all its ups and downs. We have made ten videos around these topics, with life lessons that are so very much needed in these hectic times. Lessons that we didn’t learn at school, but which we will benefit from all our lives. Watch the ninth video in this series below.

Enjoy the joy of missing out (JOMO)

Embrace your so-so days. The ok-but-not-so-spectacular days. Forget other people; those enjoying their fabulous picnics, brilliant strolls and amazing festivals. The ones with lives full of hashtags like #watchingthesunset, #makingmemories, #thisissoamazing. Remember: the so-so days are just as #amazing. Enjoy the slow-cooked eggs, milky cornflakes, soft blankets, cups of tea, the fat cat purring. And nothing to do. Stop comparing. And learn from the cat. It couldn’t care less; it’s a master of JOMO: the Joy Of Missing Out.
