Content - A Six Sentence Story

Sometimes, I lay awake, contemplating my life's contents.

Sometimes, I'm worried, sometimes I'm angry, sometimes I'm happy, and sometimes I'm simply content.

Sometimes, when all things fall into place, when we had a simple, quiet day, without much hurry or excitement, when the little things become the big picture.

On these days, I only truly see the content of my life.

It is not about celebrating big victories or trying to survive the big defeats.

It is the small things that bring on the peace of content.


This post is part of the Six Sentence Stories; thank you so much, Ivy, for being a genius!!

  1. very nice work with that cue word! (somehow, there is a rhythm to the words*) of your story that is as much a part of the enjoyment as the words themselves.

    * I'm always trying to notice things that done in the good stories and (first) try to figure out what it is and (second) try to learn how to do it myself

    speaking of first

    FRISST!

    1. FIRST, Clark :-) I generally prefer poetry without a rhyme but with a good rhythm instead. It's not something traditional, but more calming, to me..

  2. I think this cue has triggered something in me. I spent part of today driving around and thinking much as youve written .... It is so nice to come here and see this ... it makes me feel better... I was not feeling great after the drive but somehow this was a real boon... THanks Stephanie! PS... winter soon... get to take out my neck warmer! Not everyone hates winter!

    1. I DEFINITELY prefer winter over summer, because I can snuggle in nice, warm clothes and fabrics. I'm going to get my neck-warmer out again as well :-) I hope you feel better soon, Ivy!
