Along the Same Lines...

Yesterday I wrote about the six word stories which reminded me of the six word memoir. I wrote mine back when I first began blogging. Here it is:
Life is Good ~ Sing it Loud!

Have you seen the meme asking for a six word autobiography yet? What a cool idea. What a difficult task. How to sum up a life in a few words and not sound like a bumper sticker? My first thought when I saw the meme was relief that I was unlikely to ever be given such a task. It's funny that I remain untagged, but have written my perfect six word autobiography. I came up with it in less than a minute when I gave a title to this picture. At the time, I didn't have a clear idea for this post. I just knew I had to write about the picture that moved me so much. I thought titling it was a good place to start, even though I can't claim the honor of photographing it. This picture is so me that when I described it, I realized I had described myself pretty well - autobiography well. Life is Good - Sing it Loud!
  • I'm a top-of-my-lungs-out-the-car-window kind of singer.
  • I'm a cry-at-Hallmark-commercials passionate woman.
  • I'm a want-to-hug-you-when-I-see-you-when-I-leave-you-and-any-time-you-make-me laugh kind of person.
  • I laugh often and loud.
  • I'm a roll-down-the-hill-in-my-Sunday-clothes kind of girl.
  • I say "Yes!" and "Why not?" more often than "No" or "We'll see."
  • I still ride on the merry-go-round every chance I get, and I race my daughter for the highest swing at the playground.
Life is Good - Sing it Loud! That's me.
And you? What's your six word memoir?

Girl. You always make me think and I come back and I think some more and sometimes I just go away still thinking, with no answer. :) Y'all are good and I am tempted to say "She sells seashells by the seashore" as mine because I have nothing. LOL! I will have to go away and think some more.

It sounds just like you. You have always been full of laughter, even when you were small. I love your enthusiastic attitude about life! Love ya! Grammy

Meri said...

Well (hugs to you, too), how about:

Always turning to face the sun.
So much still left to do.
Learning to loose the goddess within.
Love never leaves, it nestles inside.
I create and thus become myself.

Shall I keep going?

Hi Relyn,

That's a great autobiography line - as are all your other predelictions!

As for me:
Wait a minute, while I think!

Debbie said...

Well now that is just splendid (my Grandpa Amsler's favorite word). Hey that also has 6 words but it isn't my 6 word story. Mine would be

I will be - an open book.

I'm still back thinking about the Robert Schuller quote. That one just stirred my thinking.

Her heart sings with earth beauty.

That is what is popping in my mind right at this moment. And you add to that beauty.

I was away and without internet accessibility hence I am visiting after what seems like ages.
My six word story would be: Wondering wanderer on an insightful journey.
