fun is priceless

Contrary to the popular belief, fun is a subtle expression. Companies and retailers try to commercialize fun. Through their hoardings, advertisements and their social media presence, they mislead us into believing that fun is only for the selected few who take advantage of their offerings. They put a price tag on fun, and most of us unfortunately get influenced and carried away by their persistent reminders.

We get under the spell of their clever marketing schemes and start pursuing their idea of fun. We’re ready to pay any price to escape from our everyday stresses, frustrations, loneliness and sadness.

There’s no harm in gathering new experiences, but we need to understand that fun doesn’t necessarily mean indulging ourselves in unnecessary expenses. We have access to fun whenever we want; we don’t have to look for it elsewhere.

We can bring fun into our lives through small and meaningful avenues every day. It doesn’t have to be something grand and over the top. It can be as simple as enjoying the coziness of your home or spending time with a loved one.

The happiest place on Earth need not be thousands of miles away from you, it’s always within you. Don’t get lured by the blind chase of fun as the big giants want you to so that they earn massive profits. Instead, ask yourself what fun truly means to you, and make it something personal and meaningful.
