Be Yourself Be Happy Be Unapologetic

Who are you? Well, I am John3c, and no that is not the name given to me but, for the purpose of this post that is who I am. I enjoy long walks on the beach reading good books, and many other things. I dislike sandwiches with tomatoes on them, any type of hate.
See what I did there? Without, going into great depth I began to profile myself and I did it using the emotions of happiness and sorrow. Being human can seem on its surface complicated but it is actually beautifully simple and miraculous. I feel like the poet Walt Whitman did an amazing job of describing this state of humanity, especially in his Leaves of Grass collection. I encourage you to read this if you haven’t and if you have read it again. Man has simple emotions but engages in some amazing things. We call finding ourselves puberty or adolescence when it happens in our teens. When we are older and rediscover who we are we call that, a midlife crisis. Whatever it is,figure out what you love, hate and are apathetic to. Find yourself, then be yourself.
Being yourself is the first step to being happy and what is life all about, of not being happy?

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
John Lennon

Apologies are more for the person who gives them than the one receiving. Think back to the last time you apologized to someone. Why did you do it? Probably to make that person feel better. But, really it was more for you than them. When you live your life your life to be the best you, there will not be a need to apologize. I think Kissinger said this best

“Accept everything about yourself – I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end – no apologies, no regrets.”

Henry A. Kissinger
