* How is Your Sense of Human?

Have you noticed how our computers and smartphones are becoming more intuitive when it comes to our spelling? For example, when I type in meditate it changes Β to mediate. Learned appears as lean red…..
Texting now comes with so many errors that I have given up trying to change them. It happens to all of us. Let’s let that one go! πŸ™‚

The other day I was commenting on Louise’s blog “Dare Boldly”.Β I typed in “sense of humor” and Apple changed it to sense of human. How funny and very true for this post about picking up in her yard!

It made me pause …. Having a sense of humor about being human is so important as we go through the highs and lows of life.

A sense of human is when…

  • we embrace our inner critter when it gets up to mischief!
  • we can laugh at our imperfections … and then give ourselves a hug πŸ™‚
  • we notice all aspects of ourselves and can say “How curious!” “How fascinating!” or “How hilarious!”
  • we realize that life is actually like a daytime soap opera!
  • we look in the mirror, see our parent and laugh out loud!
  • we find ourselves noticing the pain and struggle in others and bring lightness their way …
  • we appreciate that laughter feeds our souls and is good for our health πŸ˜›

So share often!

  1. Very good thoughts. I love it when google helps me formulate my search by completing my thought for me . . . but I like to do my own spelling and typing and not have my inner critic turned into a inner critter without my permission. 😎


  2. I’m with Miss Kimberly – what a way to turn a mistake into something better – and what a great life lesson that is for me to keep in mind; mistakes can happen for a reason, and usually it is so I can learn, sometimes it is so I can grow, but I should embrace them better! πŸ™‚


  3. That attitude towards life you so ably describe, Val, is health itself. It’s the way to live – isn’t that what is being human all about. I think so. I must say I find those little changes in texting a bit irritating. Kind of has the audacity to take from me what I want to write. πŸ™‚


  4. Brilliant observations (as always)! Thank you Val. I loved how your comment to Louise got changed to sense of ‘human’. Reminds me of a minister, years ago, using a story in Star Wars to help make her point. She shared the part where DV reaches for Luke, and she said his words as ‘Join with me Luke, and together we can ruin the universe!’ Freudian slips are awesome. Thanks for these fun insights. And let’s keep smiling and laughing! It’s so good to lighten up. Hugs, Gina


    • Thank you Barbara. There is so much happening in the world right now that can bring us down. Finding lightness and sharing it helps us find balance.
      Thanks for stopping by!
      Val xo


  5. This is so beautiful. Especially the line “we look in the mirror, see our parent and laugh out loud!”.
    Everyone tells me I look like my father. Though I’d rather have more of my mother’s features, it’s fascinating to look into the mirror and spot the unmistakable resemblance. Hahaha, it’s cute – the way our parents live in us =’)


    • Thank you for stopping by Naima. Sometimes when we see our parent in the mirror, cute may not be the most appropriate word … but the ability to laugh is always good for the soul πŸ™‚


  6. Val, what a beautiful post. OH yes we must remind ourselves we are human and oh yes, how valuable a sense of humor is. The world is so perfection orientated, and I get a kick that the um smart phones are making mistakes. I’m glad for my android that doesn’t do that as much. Maybe peeps will get so aggravated with their techy toys that they will actually start talking to one another again. There is always hope that happens. (smile) Love, Amy


I'd love to hear from you ...
