Falling in love consists merely in uncorking the imagination and bottling the common sense.
June 26 - love has faith and commonsense
Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves;
they will always have entertainment
Blessed are those who can distinguish between a mountain and a molehill;
they will save themselves a lot of trouble.
Blessed are those who can rest and sleep without looking for excuses;
they will become wise.
Blessed are those who are intelligent enough not to take themselves too seriously;
they will be appreciated.
Blessed are you if you can look seriously at small things and peacefully at serious things;
you will go far in life.
Blessed are you if you can admire a smile and forget a scowl;
your path will be sunlit.
Blessed are you if you can always interpret the attitudes of others with good will, even when appearances are to the contrary;
you may seem naive, but that is the price of charity.
Blessed are those who think before acting and who laugh before thinking;
they will avoid foolish mistakes.
Blessed are you if you know how to be silent and smile, even when you are interrupted, contradicted or walked on;
the gospel is beginning to take root in your heart.
Blessed are you especially if you know how to recognize the Lord in all those you meet;
you have found the true light, true wisdom.
This is a little difference twist to the Bee Attitudes that I shared in a previous post. Our attitudes are so important in life and I think our faith plays a good part in what kind of attitude we have. Using our common sense is also part of a good attitude.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Mark Twain said it well with his definition: Common sense is the simple knack of seeing something the way it really is and doing something the way it should be done. A good mixture of both, faith and a bit of common sense, can only serve to improve our attitudes.
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
