Hello November – Let’s make it a good one!


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.

Common Sense

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’Β 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 –

~ Penny

  1. 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. πŸ™‚

  2. 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! πŸ™‚

    • 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! πŸ™‚ xo

  3. 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! πŸ™‚ xx

  4. 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?” πŸ™‚ Enjoy your Monday my friend

Thank you for your thoughts!
