One Life. Your Story. Six Words. What’s Yours?

Six word memoirs - Uncommon Chick...what's yours?

Ahhh, the ever so oldie but goodie – six word memoirs/stories.

I remember when everybody was talking about it after Smith Magazine started a challenge back in ’06 and even O Magazine had a full feature highlighting stories from readers.

And it got me thinking – What would my peeps say? What’s their story?

So I took it to the streets and by streets I mean Facebook. :-)

In Response to ‘What’s Your Six Word Memoir?’ 

I am amazed, inspired, and sometimes amused by what some of my friends had to say and enjoyed reading their unique perspectives. Check it out!

Six word memoirs from my Facebook friends - What Yours?

Six word memoirs from my Facebook Fans - What Yours?

What’s my story?

Now it’s my turn to take a stab at it. So putting myself in the hot seat, I came up with these six word memoirs:

  • Do it today; be glad tomorrow.
  • This is MY life; enjoy it.
  • Life is simple; don’t complicate it.
  • Live life fully or die trying.

Who’da thunk that six words can be so powerful?!

Everyone has a story…what’s yours?

There’s no doubt that each one of us could write a long autobiography but sometimes fewer words do the trick perfectly!

So now I ask you – what six words sum up your life or philosophy? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share in the comments below!

Wassuper, it’s yo girl, Kesha and I believe we should Be the Fruit Loop in a world full of Cheerios because life is more interesting when you dare to be different! My personal mission is to enrich others’ lives through personal anecdotes, valuable resources, connection and inspiring messages. I also thrive on challenging what’s “normal” and encourage others to do the same. Learn even more about me and let’s connect!

    Hey Kesha,

    Girl, you sure did start that conversation going. I love that too, good for you. Okay, I would have to go with:

    I am here because of God!

    It just doesn’t get much better then that.

    Hi Lakesha, the very sight of the six word memoirs made me happy. I have learned a lot from life and in every sphere. For me the six words of my life would be – ‘My life- my terms and conditions’.

    Nice post Lakesha! In 6 enchanting words, I would say – Stand Tall, Take Action, Prove Yourself.

    Hmm, this is a hard one…I was literally sitting here counting words on my fingers, and kept coming up with too many! ;)

    Let’s see… “I am fearless, loving, and positive!”…that’s my affirmation!
