Maybe we should just call it sense

Maybe we should just call it sense.

Take the common out of it.

Common sense is on the endangered list.

Yes, of course, if you’ve got to get a nail through a piece of wood, a hammer makes sense.

But if a positive attitude as well as peace and contentment is exponentially better than a negative one…if exercise is better than not…

On second thought, maybe common sense is extinct.

To see what is right in front of us is one of life’s greatest challenges.

Why we struggle with this is a mystery.

Einstein Average Man

“If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make a living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher.  I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances”. Albert Einstein

Meanwhile in my zip code, there’s a sea of upscale vehicles, yet the 1990 Toyota suites me perfectly.

There’s even a dinner-plate sized dent on the driver’s front fender.  Was going to have it repaired until I realized how much that road-rage induced dent signified how lucky I am to still be alive.

In America, we are constantly tempted to keep up with the Joneses.  Why?   Because we are afraid of who we really are.

Would you rather be loved for who you’re not or hated for who you are?
