Six Word Memoir

memoir

"Everybody has a story, and it’s time to share yours. Inspired by the creative minds at SMITH Magazine, home of the Six-Word Memoir® project, we'd like you to tell us about who you are and the life you’ve lived in six well-chosen words. Send us your story by Nov. 11, and it could be featured in an upcoming issue of O or on Oprah.com.

Think you can’t condense a lifetime of experiences into a sentence or two? Consider the mini-memoirs created by our own Suze Orman (Broke waitress. Gives tips. Is approved.) and Dr. Oz (Healed with steel, then got real).

For more inspiration, visit smithmag.net."

Let me just say that I LOVE THIS!  What a neat idea....and difficult. 

It took me awhile...I am wordy. :)

Mine..."Loved. Damaged. Then Deeply Loved Again."

Yep...that just about sums up my memoir.  Then I started thinking....what if you did this for your life by decade...by category like friendship, professional, family, etc.  What six words would sum up those areas of your life?

Professionally:  "Driven.  Passionate.  Persistent.  100,000 Feet Thinker."

Spiritually:  "Sinner in need of a Savior."

Family:  "Love.  Broken.  Finally found unconditional love."

Wild, huh??  I challenge you to do this...it is harder than it looks.  Trust me...you will be glad to have done the exercise. :)
