6 Word Story: 9/26

I’m seriously thinking about taking a half day at work and catch up on what needs my attention here at the house. My luck, I’ll get swamped at work and will barely get to eat lunch. Going to start with my story, breakfast, and hope that today goes well.  Happy Wednesday everyone!


Prompt: Sand

Create the pearl that other's cannot.

6 Word Story: 9/22-24

I’m going to start off saying…I failed already this morning but plan on walking this evening. Second…I had the most relaxing and wonderful weekend. I didn’t worry much about anything. I lived in the moment and it was one of the most rewarding experiences. I’m going to catch-up then post later about events, ideas, and adventures. They may not be considered as adventures by normal standards but for me, it was.


I think it’s true that you’re are only as old as you think you are. I also think that I have missed out on a lot because I felt like I had to be an adult. I ended up being a wet blanket when I could have enjoyed so much more in life. I’m going to start trying to still be an adult but one that enjoys more in life.

9/22 Prompt: Youthful

Age depends on how you feel.

I think if I believe that my mind, thoughts, and feelings as my space rather than a part of societies whole I wouldn’t let so much eat at me. Or at the very least, not have panic attacks about what others think about me.

9/23 Prompt: Territory

Your mind, your territory, your rules.

Frogs? What was I thinking about this prompt? At least I made myself smile this morning and hope ya’ll got a kick out the prompt too.

9/24 Prompt: Frogs

Kissing frogs shouldn't be a priority.

6 Word Story: 9/21

My son kept me up last night for no real reason other than I took his tablet from him and he thought he was going to be sneaky and try to get it. Lack of sleep kind of killed my motivation to get on the treadmill this morning. In fact, I’m running so behind this morning I’m really not caring if I’m late for work. My friend that texted yesterday about her depression was doing so much better later in the day. She told me that she liked to draw and I got her a pad and micron pens so she can get back into her doodling. I explained to her that is can help and I realized that I need to get back into it myself. I have no plans this weekend other than battling the mosquito population with chemical warfare.

Today’s prompt seems like something that is hard to find or is manipulated for people’s own personal agenda but I’m going to try and keep it positive.


Prompt: Tangible

Your goals are proof of hope.

6 Word Story: 9/20

Yesterday was a huge FAIL but this morning I woke up deciding that I won’t let that bother me today. I think what pushed me was a friend reaching out this morning and telling me that she feels like her battle with depression is getting the best of her. I’m glad she reached out and wished more people would. It helped put things in perspective for me and I hope that opening up helps her. If someone reaches out to you, listen. Oh…ugh weigh in day today.


Prompt: Incandescent

Be the radiance your soul needs.

6 Word Story: 9/19

After 2 years, I was approached by my hiring manager and was told that I would finally be able to do social media for the company. That’s why they hired me! It took them this long to figure out that the company needs some sort of online presence other than an outdated website that I’m not allowed to touch either. I’m super happy don’t get me wrong but why the change of heart? Was it the search history on my computer and my applying to other job activities?

Tomorrow is weigh in day but I have made a commitment to either write tonight or paint. The coin toss will happen after I cook dinner.


Prompt: Concern

Let go of what causes anxiety.

 

6 Word Stories: 9/8-9/9

Have you ever wished life would give you a break? The kind of break where you can sit and do nothing and not worry about anything? I would kill for the opportunity to go for a hike or even just bask in the sun (now that it’s not storming anymore). My daughter received bad news and isn’t doing too well, emotionally. She had a miscarriage and what’s worse the doctor will not do anything until Monday hoping things will happen naturally. This morning, I learned that my cousin was in a bad wreck last night. Lost control and rolled the vehicle. She and her boyfriend are lucky to be alive. I was going to do nothing today. I wasn’t going to go outside, answer the phone, check social media, or do my stories. It feels like it would open the floodgates but I figured that living in that frame of mind is what will turn into me not leaving my bed for a few days. I talked to my daughter and cousin now I’m trying to write. Here goes nothing.


9/8: Offer

Offer commitment to achieve your goals.

9/9: Pets

Small paws can deliver unconditional love.

 

6 Word Story: 9/7

Trying to be positive is so difficult with everything happening around me. Bad news coming from both directions then add stress makes it difficult. I did jump on the scale again and it said that I gained 3 more pounds. My rings are tight on my finger then I realized that it’s water weight. So, cut back on the salt and drink more water. That’s my main goal this week.


Prompt: Plausible

Dreams are plausible if you believe.

 

 

6 Word Story: 9/6

I’m frustrated to no end and ready to throw my hands up and just eat and be lazy. But that’s for a different post. Today’s prompt is something I feel that I have done or been my ENTIRE life. I much rather stand up against others, go against the grain, and at times-rise to the occasion of an argument.


Prompt: Rebel

Rebel against your own self-doubt.

6 Word Story: 9/5

The rain is neverending at the moment. Of course, my area is under a flood warning! The river that flows through our town is above flood level and the businesses along its side are preparing for the worst. It’s making my morning walking routines non-existent and even school canceled their first day of school because of the rain. The puppy update…he’s doing better. He’s eating and actually seeking affection from his foster mom. Today’s prompt and the past situation helped inspire this 6-word piece.


Prompt: Voice

Don't whimper. Scream and be heard.

 

6 Word Story: 8/30

Today’s prompt word can be used to refer to many things and situations. Like right now, for example, I believe that I didn’t do well on my diet this week. Pizza, cake, and bloody marys aren’t sufficient but I did love the indulging of fats, cheeses, and booze. I’m forcing myself to get back on track but I’ll post all that later.


Prompt: Belief

Always believe in your first step.

6 Word Story: 8/27

I had to wake up really early to do write. I wanted to get my walk in before going to work where the company has blocked EVERYTHING. I can’t access a lot of sites including my writing classes and most of my WP site (not even on our breaks) so I wouldn’t be able to write at work. Today’s prompt was difficult to wrap my head around but I came up with something.

I’m learning a lot about Asatru, watercolor, and apothecary. At first, I felt like an idiot but then I started reading, practicing, and learning about a lot and don’t feel quite inept in conversations.


Prompt: Feeble

Understanding weakness allows space for learning.

 

6 Word Story: 8/23

Guess who got their internet back? This gal. The company finally agreed that we needed a new router, came and installed it. 

I really can’t speak for society as a whole but I can from my point of view. From what I see, I heartbroken and scared. I know that more is being shown on the news and not so much censored as it was in the 80’s and 90’s. I think it’s just going to get worse to tell you the truth. A week ago I stopped to let kids on bikes cross through the crosswalk and no one else stopped. I literally had to get out of my car to help them across. I hope that drivers that seen me are mindful next time they are driving and come up to a crosswalk.


Prompt: Society

Be an example for younger generations.

6 Word Story: 8/20

I tend to be the person that takes something that bothers me and brood over it. I do it more than I should and it’s just wasted energy. I worked and worked on this prompt trying to make it a positive one.


Prompt Word: Dwell

Reside in confidence and defy failure.
