Your life in six words  
A member of my forum posted today about an anecdote about Ernest Hemingway betting that he could write a story in six words, which he won with "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn".

She heard this on a BBC radio program where callers were asked to sum up their life in six words. Here were some of their submissions:

Wasted my whole life getting comfortable

Head in books feet in flowers

I knew I could be happy

Found it, lost it, found it

Wrong era, wrong class, wrong gender

Too many sausages, not enough sex


She invited us to try this and here was mine:

Quest for love, understanding, and Truth.

So my challenge to you is, sum up your life story in six words. And pass this on!

Successfully lived out my mother's dream.

Perfectly worded! Fortunately, you are still young enough to find and live out your own. :)

I read that to my mother and she said it made her feel bad, but she admitted it was very true.
