Six Sentence Story - Crystal

Considering it is New Year's Day and all, I was a little surprised by what didn't come up at the top of my Google search for our prompt for the Six Sentence Story today. It is also an indication I suppose of my naiveté. Just so you know, I decided to write a Six Sentence Story - Crystal without going the direction of what I was expecting to come up on the Google search, nor what actually did appear. I am thankful for this little Six that surfaced and am looking forward to reading your creative works. Thank you, Denise, of Girlie on the Edge's Blog, for another year of hosting this blog hop hop!





You just don’t understand, because I have read the entire book, and the majority of it is as clear as mud.


What did you do to prepare yourself, knowing ahead of time that you would be undertaking such a course of study?


What do you mean, what did I do to prepare myself? I’ve gotten excellent grades and people tell me I am capable of achieving great things.


Not everything is crystal clear in life, as you have discovered while wallowing in despair when the understanding didn’t come as quickly as it did for you in the past.  Maybe now is the time to exercise a little faith in the possibility that there is a higher being who knows you better than you know yourself and is just waiting for you to ask for his guidance as to what to do about this predicament you have.

  1. Such guidance is welcome here, especially when everything is of mud quality.

  2. When the going gets tough... one should get out of one's own way and accept clarity. Nice take. Made me wonder what book was confounding the character.

    1. Yes, indeed. I don't know what book or subject he was reading, but it obviously had him stymied.

  3. No, not everything is. Hopefully more, rather than less, have a source from which they draw comfort and faith, a source that not only guides but delivers.

    1. IMO, I think the key here is in asking for his "guidance." Coming to a greater understanding of a subject often requires seeing a subject more clearly, with new eyes so to speak, and having one's thoughts and actions spurred in a different direction, etc. to be able understand even if it is just one degree at a time.

    1. That can be frustrating when the devices don't work like the computer at home. I have been in that situation at times too.
      I am glad that you enjoy my posts. There are many times when I feel way out of my league in this writing sphere, but I really enjoy the many degrees of writing expertise found in the posts written by others. I appreciate being able to try to learn a little bit through osmosis. HaHa

  5. all too often, the ego contrives to make the difficult things easy and the easy things difficult.

    1. Oh, yes, that Mr. Ego tends to make our lives more difficult that they need to be. It is funny how Mr. Ego is often almost invisible to the one that he is drawn to, but jarringly apparent to others in the vicinity, at least to their way of thinking. HaHa

  6. Or sleep with the book under your pillow. Haha Asking for guidance works better. Nice six.

    1. Wouldn't that be great, to just sleep on a book and have one's mind filled with knowledge! I would just end up with a crick in my neck. HaHa
