anything but common...

Lately I've been thinking about the term "common sense" A LOT and the reason why I've decided to completely eliminate it off my life.

Why, you might ask? Well let me try to explain myself why.

According to some online sources, the term "common sense" means:

"A Sense which SHOULD be common to everyone. Usually refers to any sort of logic that should be obvious to anyone." via Urban Dictionary

"The basic level of practical knowledge and judgment that we all need to help us live in a reasonable and safe way." via Cambridge Dictionary

"Sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts". via Merriam Webster dictionary

Now, when I analyze the world we live on nowadays, there's so much hate, envy and many other negative actions done by some many, that I feel this is becoming the common type of thinking by many.

When it's common for people to abuse children, animals and the environment (among others)...

In a world where being the most popular, the richest or the most powerful regardless of whom or how many you are oppressing is what's acceptable... When you turn on the t.v. and it's all about what you "need" or who you "have" to be in order to make it in life... I find it unacceptable and I definitely don't wanna be part of the "common kind of thinking", aka "common sense".

Many people claim that they have common sense. In many cases I have claimed to have it as well, but then if so many people think a certain way then that makes this kind of thinking "common", right?

So, as of today I shall not expect to understand others as I am not longer a member of the "common sense" practice but instead I am practicing a very "exclusive" kind of sense which is directly linked to be being loving, polite, friendly, helpful, caring and even empathic to others.

Makes sense, right? Just saying...

Have a great Thursday!

getting well... soon!

Tuesday has come and gone and I feel as if it was all a blur.

From Monday afternoon after I had lunch I felt my throat was bothering me, kind of itchy and harsh. By the time I got home all I wanted was some nice chicken soup, which I made and was great.

Tuesday I woke up feeling like crap, my throat on fire, my whole body aching and running a fever. So I stayed in, called in sick and slept most of the morning, got up, had some lunch, watch a movie and then off to bed again.

Today I woke up feeling even worst, so as soon as I was able to open my eyes fully, I dialed the doctors office and they told me that the only open appointment of the day was in half a hour!

Yikes! I literately jump out of bed, washed my face and drove to the doctor.

After two shots and some antibiotics, I am at home now and after a shower I decided to catch up on my blog and yours.. Feeling overall o.k. because of the two shots, I have a sick note for tomorrow so I should be back to work on Friday.

On another health note, I got the results of all my blood test done last week and according to the doctor, all is good, woo-hoo!

So, as far as my swollen eyes go, next weeks appointment should be about testing me for some food allergies, we shall see.

Happy Hump Day!!!

this is it...

Yesterday was exactly one month since we came back from Costa Rica and with the past couple of weeks I've had at work, now I feel like it's time take yet another vacation...

But instead of taking vacation today, I am going to settle with sharing some pictures from when we visited the Pacific beach in CR where we have a property.

Ario is the name of the beach and this last visit I came to the realization that this is it for my happy place in the world.

It is such a wonderful place, filled with Almond trees that give an amazing shade, lots of sand with areas covered in shells as well as a very colorful rocks.

The three days we were there [this last time], we walked the beach many times, collecting shells, taking in the nice fresh air and just enjoying the ocean breeze.

The tides are very high or very low making the beach different in a matter of hours.

The rock formations are quite unique and you can't help but wonder what took place during their creation...

There are also other very unique natural structures found on the beach.

This time we found a HUGE tree trunk, I can't help but wonder how beautiful the whole tree must have been when alive.

So, yes it is a magical, beautiful place and although it's Monday and I am not there, I can still close my eyes and transport myself to all this... To my very happy place!

Have a great week, will share more pictures of my dear Ario very soon!!!
