Stop Apologizing for Having Fun

In a world of critics and cynics, you will constantly be told to stop posting selfies, sharing stories, or bragging about your experiences. It's not bragging if it's the truth and you're enjoying life. It's highlighting how fun life can be if you choose to make it that way. It's showing appreciation for the experiences and people who bring you joy. You don't need to apologize for having fun and enjoying your life.

If someone cannot figure out what makes them happy or constantly creates justifications for their unhappiness, that is not your concern. They must find their own alignment and their own path. Do not dial down your life, your relationships, or your experiences. You inspire others when you share the good stuff! If you're not comfortable with sharing, that's totally fine, but don't STOP sharing just because it makes someone else uncomfortable. What they are really uncomfortable with is being accountable for creating their life. They want pity and attention instead of fun experiences. You cannot change their perceptions nor their behaviors. You can only continue to live your life the way that you want it to be.

There is no need for guilt or explanations either. You are accountable to you so you might as well enjoy your journey. Don't fall for the paradigm that "life is hard and you must struggle for everything" unless that's the type of life you want to live. Follow your own heart, your own excitement, and no apologies are necessary!
