Six Sentence Story June 20

The cue word today is polish. Or maybe it is Polish.

Just Look For It


I studied the polish on my nails before I gave a reply.

"No," I said slowly, searching for the right words, "happiness is not hard to find."

"You just have to work on it as much as you do cost anaylsis or playing games on your phone."

Allison shrugged, "I don't want to work at it, I just want it to be there when I want it, like an automatic teller machine."

I smiled and shook my head, "I think you need to recognize happiness when it happens to you, like right now with your new manicure."

She looked at her nails with the sparkly crescent on each one and looked at me in surprise, "You're right, that did make me happy and I didn't even realize it!"

    1. Thank you. Sometimes we get so caught up in the rush of everyday, or the worries of everyday, that we forget that good things happen throughout the day.

  5. A lovely reminder that joy can be found if we free ourselves to take note. Of the little things, of what often is right under our nose.
    Good six :)

    1. Thanks. I decided to start taking note every time a good moment made me happy and draw on those at times when I don't feel happy.
