For parts of the planet the weather is definitely getting colder. For other parts it is balmy and lovely! (I must admit to being a little bit envious for the warmth in those areas.)
It is Monday for most of us, Tuesday for some and a new week and month has begun.
What can we do to improve our day and those days ahead?
Well it isn’t going to be easy, is it? I mean, how can you determine the truth of what’s going on in the world around you sorting through the “heaps and heaps” of untruths, half-truths and play ol’ runaway insanity we are inundated with each day.
So here’s a thought. How about for starters, we use our common sense! For example “all commercials and advertisements” you are viewing online (regardless of what type of mechanical device you are using) – are there for the sole purpose of enticing you to buy something! (Always – No Exceptions, here!) So keep this in mind. Not just as a consumer but as an individual concerned for you and your family’s well-being.
Don’t buy into a “story” no matter how compelling because it’s “trending”. Use common sense. If you’re in a state (USA) where you’ll be voting the same logic should apply. Don’t “vote” just to vote. If you don’t understand the issue (you should) take the time to learn about it. Ditto with those who are running for a public office. Common Sense is an amazing tool when we take the time to use it.
Yes, ‘Common Sense’ is absolutely better then ‘Omnipotent Hindsight’ which is how most opinions (we read about) are formed today – after the fact (spreading like wildfire) rather than securing needed information first – when the ‘actually facts’ can be of much needed value!
What is your ‘common sense’ quotient? Give it a try, you may be pleasantly surprised yourself, with how effective this tool can be for you!
Have a good November, make ‘common sense’ your new “norm”. And who knows? It might actually trend its way into some of the areas where common sense is sorely needed (because it’s obviously missing completely in those places).
Happy week to all, Stay balanced (with lots of love thrown in)! And never, never forget –

Hope you are having a lovely November thus far Penny! I agree that common sense is sorely lacking and we are often like sheep, following along blindly, grasping sound bites and holding onto them as truisms. Another great post about taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions. 🙂
So far so good, no more wind but getting ready to get really cold here.
Yes we’ve been seeing completely idiocy recently in our politics, in the way people are living their lives, it’s just insanity, LuAnn. And you are so right about the “sheep” thing. Thanks, I feel like I need a cattle prod, okay I didn’t really mean that … well maybe … 🙂
I believe we all know someone who could use a good cattle prodding on occasion, including ourselves perhaps? 😉
Truly spoken indeed! 🙂
Common Sense does not seem to be something we have in quality or quanity these days. Nor does it seem to be something we value. It is unfortunate.
Yes, it is now “uncommon” for there to be “common” sense. I am hopeful this state of condition will improve. And you are right, it is unfortunate!
AnElephantCant believe he is beautiful
But he wants to share a strange coincidence
His post today
From far far away
Is also about uncommon sense
Great stuff, Penny
So I read. Uncommon sense indeed. Such an uplifting thought for the common sense personality! 🙂 xo
Common sense seems to have dwindled in quantity in, I’d say, the last 7 or 8 years. Surprisingly, the one thing that likes to be the thread that runs through all of it is the lack of true communication. The simple conversation is rare these days, being replaced with hipe, how-tos, and gibberish centered around pipe dreams.
Too, too true Glynis. I shall be most pleased when the next phase (of people) remembering these things makes them reappear again! Happy thoughts indeed and hopefully not a pipe dream! 🙂
May November be lovely for you, Penny.
Thank you Celestine, and you as well my friend. You are not forgotten, but deep in my heart, I regret not visiting you more recently but did want to remind you of my feelings for you and your wonderful family! 🙂 xo
Happy Day – Happy New Month!
xo 🙂 🙂 xo
Happy happy RoSy! You brighten my November, already! 🙂 xo
In my view trying to mix common sense, voting and politics is like mixing oil and water lol Have a wonderful November : )
Hi Claire, I’d say you’re 1000% correct. For those with common sense, (unfortunately) many stay as far away as they can from politics – which, of course, proves your point doesn’t it? LOL You also – a happy November, may this November be filled with wonderful memories to lessen those, from a year ago my friend! 🙂 xx
Thank you Penny. Last year… phew thank goodness none of us are going through that again in a hurry! lol But this next one coming up is going to be amazing for us all! Only happy times ahead allowed (giggles)
Totally Claire – Only happy times allowed!!!! 🙂 xxx
Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.
Have a great week Penny, and a great November too. As I was reading this, the old amusing thought struck me – “Why is common sense the least common of all the senses?” 🙂 Enjoy your Monday my friend
Cheers to strong motivation for November! 🙂
Thanks Andy, a windy weekend here on the Northwest wiped by my Internet for a fair portion of the time but you can’t keep a good woman down!!!! LOL 🙂
wow that must of been one helluva storm! thank god for data plans 😀 lol
Wasn’t “scary” just weird Andy. I used to live in Florida and the hurricanes, well they’re scary, but for even just 60 mph winds here – it is unusual, so we aren’t prepared for them, and my wireless router didn’t want to behave either!!! 🙂
Well I’m glad you made it 😀
Just stayed indoors! But I do thank you! 🙂
That works! 🙂
