In Others’ Words: Sense
“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.”
~William James (1842-1910), American psychologist
Whatever I lack in common sense, I like to think I make up in a sense of humor.
And I completely embrace William Jame’s idea that my sense of humor is my common sense doing the cha-cha.
I’m all for evaluating the facts of a situation — I am a journalist, after all. But I also bring my emotions into play, as well as praying for discernment.
But allowing my sense of humor freedom to weave it’s way through a challenge has saved me from frustration. From failure. From walking away from an opportunity.
In Your Words: If you had to choose, would you pick common sense or a sense of humor?0 I like this!
