    Wow! I have FOMD! My boyfriend can attest to that, he thinks I take too many pictures or too much video but I just love the capturing beautiful moments (which in my case it's almost everything I do) and reliving them again and again. But yes once in a while I just have to put the phone/camera down and fully absorb the moment in mind and body. Great post!! Thanks Missy

    This is great! I'm trying to live in the moment more as well---- I think we have to be happy with our experiences and memories-- even if tons of people don't see it and envy it. Or even if there aren't tangible remnants of it (photos). I feel like through social media we are constantly seeking others' jealousy and approval and it just takes away from the overall experience.

    I admit this fourth of July, I was trying to feel the fireworks through my camera and it wasn't working. The instagramed shots, however, were great default pics. :(

    my wife pointed out on sunday how awesome the people were who were not looking at Andy Murray through there phone after his historic victory, but who were just enjoying the moment. Appreciate this societal perspective to contextualize that comment and better witness my own activities on this front.

    I caught myself in the midst of a FOMD all this weekend at the beach. Felt pretty terrible then and now. I love that this topic is being brought up! Hopefully we can learn to strike a balance between life and technology.
