six words

have you heard of this book, 'six word memoirs'? famous and not so famous writers writing their memoirs in 6 words or less. for instance:

"almost a victim of my family" - chuck sangster

"a psychic said i'd be richer" - elizabeth bernstein

"painful nerd kid, happy nerd adult" - linda williamson

so i've been thinking about this. what 6 words would i write as my memoirs? here is what i came up with... having trouble with just one, but i narrowed it down to 4:

i'm really not that high maintenance.

God flung open all my doors.

my people, my cat, my books.

a little eyeliner never hurt anyone.

please write your 6 word memoir(s) in the comments section! :)

"My life is quiet and sweet."

It was one of the first things Kim wrote to me when we rekindled our friendship a year and a half ago. I loved it so much that I adopted it as my own.

overwhelmed and anxious needing more sleep

Normally?
falling forward in hopes of something

I too cannot pick just one:

God is there every single time.

Stubborn little girl. Determined, strong woman.

Independent rebel becomes fully devoted to God. (I like that one the best) :0)

I'm Chinese, not neccesarily a
doctor.

Teaching kids is like touching light.

My daughter is the best thing.

Patience is the art of hoping. (My new life mantra!)
