Six Word Memoir

Recently I heard of this book that was a compilation of six word memoirs contributed by a variety of individuals, both celebrities and average folks. I was immediately fascinated by the concept and started thinking about what my own six word memoir might be.

I’ve come to the conclusion that, for me, it’s not a static thing. Just as my life has so many facets (and that’s a post for another day!) and has gone through so many changes, my six word memoir can change as well.

So, for today, here is my six word memoir:

Detached, rescued, lost, found, strong, content.

What is your six word memoir for today?


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. That is a powerful six word memoir that is full of stories to be told. Look forward to reading the extended version!

  2. I dreamed. I lived. I became.

  3. I want every day overflowing with life. 🙂

    PS…I’ll be mailing off your prize ASAP for guessing the right answer to my blog question yesterday. Congrats again.

  4. I was obsessed with these a while back, and the one I wrote then, still holds true: Found someone who keeps me laughing.

  5. Twin, sister, wife, mother, grammy, author.

    These words are a part of my identity. The reason I put both “twin” and “sister” is because I have 2 older sisters and 1 brother, but my twin started out with me from day one and even before…that’s why it is listed first.

  6. I love that! Can I think about the six words? I like how yours evoked emotion:) I don’t want just nouns.
