6 Word Story: 2/23

Do you ever really think of what you do daily even without knowing you’re doing it? Like a habit that was never formed, something learned but never taught, or something observed and now practice? A daily habit of mine without knowing that I do it would be watching the news and thinking about it, I’ve been doing it for years. First thing in the mornings the news is blasted breaking the slumbering silence and I realized my father used to watch the news. Now another habit that I do would be writing is some form or another and now I’m trying to get some type of art in as well.

Prompt Word: Daily Ritual

“The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday, that’s guaranteed… But guess what, Sunday is my favorite day again.” – Silver Linings Playbook

OK, obviously the prompt word is “Silver Lining” but the theme for this month is gratitude. If I could warn everyone about the downside of silver linings I would but then I think maybe it would be different for them. For me, yes silver linings occur but there is always a way for the other shoe to drop. What does that have to do with gratitude? Simple, if the other shoe never dropped I would never find a strength I didn’t know about or brush off my old skills of dealing with randomness thrown at me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not strong all the time, not even a quarter of the time but I deal with ‘it’ in my own way.

“Bright sides have drawbacks”, she warned.
