If you had just six words to tell your life story, or even a small part of it, what would they be?

This is a “six word memoir” I wrote awhile back:

I wanted revenge. Karma was better.

Believe me, it was.

So what’s your story?  Do you have six words to share?

  1. Hi ‘Espirational’! Thanks so much for visiting my new blog, I hope you enjoyed it. I’m so glad you found me because here I am visiting your blog and it is wonderful, so unique and uplifting 🙂 Love everyone’s comments. What an ‘inspirational’ idea for a blog, really gets people thinking. I hope you will visit me again and I look forward to following you and receiving your daily ‘Espirations’.
    Meanwhile, my life story in 6 little words would have to be:
    “God’s mercies are new every morning”.

  2. First thanks for visiting my site and liking my posts! This is the first quote I came up with about 3 years ago…My 6 words “On this journey possibilities are endless”

  3. Thanks for liking my Labyrinth post! Browsing around your site…my six words are (and also my motto for 2013):
    (The) harder I work, (the) luckier I get!

    Thanks for the challenge…

  4. I thought about your 6 word memoir, but I could only do 5. “My faith has saved me.” But it will be something that I will continue to ponder. Thanks for stopping by and liking my post “Quiet Street for Solitary Walk”.

  5. No regrets. No more missed opportunities!

    We have so many opportunities to help others and many times we let them pass on by… This exercise is a fun way to look at life. Thank you. Take care!

      1. I suppose so although ” I was born into Heaven and nothing has gone wrong, everything was beautiful and nothing hurt” would be the story I would have prefered. LOL.
        Also I realised (instead of sleeping one night) my story had 7 instead of 6 words.
        I tried to think of two words for “pulled me out” but haven’t managed to find anything with the same impact. Then I stumbled across psalm 40:2
        “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
        OK it is also more than 6. But this is God right! He isn’t a pedant or a perfectionist like I am. He he doesn’t have to be because he is already perfect. LOL again.
        Your blog is fun and thought provoking.
