This week’s words: Placid Brook JOMO (Joy of Missing Out) Twitter Cypress Verdant Proximate Snag Inhale Brace Sunshine Placid
When Jim JOMO woke up, he resolved that as of today he would stop missing out, stop making excuses, put aside his placid self and go outside, inhale the fresh air, take in the sunshine and start his day with a new purpose.
After all his mate SKOMO had recently had unexpected success by manipulating the truth and convincing people he was acting in their best interests when in fact he wasn’t.
Jim was planning to step out of his comfort zone, and his first act was to go to the brook behind his house and brace himself for the sensation of the cold against his feet when he stepped in. Jim had long been envious of those he saw having fun in the brook.
He took a selfie of himself knee deep in the brook and posted it to his new twitter account. He then wandered through the cypress forest then out across the verdant meadow and began to realise how proximate nature was to achieving ultimate joy.
There was only one snag to his newfound joy in life, and that was substituting his profound joy in missing out, his penchant for self-pity, with his new found enjoyment in life.
“What an astounding difference all this is,” he thought to himself, as he returned home and stopped to smell the roses at his front gate. “Placid Jim is out, and action Jim is in.”
