Can We Sum Up Your Life Story in Six Words?

Can We Sum Up Your Life Story in Six Words?
I first discovered six-word memoirs while reading Gretchen Rubin’s interview with Larry Smith. Smith is the editor of SMITH magazine, home to the idea of writing your life in six words.

Then, I read about six-word memoirs on one of my favorite healthy living blogs and then I wrote about the concept on my body image blog Weightless.

According to their mission, “SMITH magazine celebrates the joy of passionate, personal storytelling.”

The inspiration for six-word memoirs came courtesy of a legend about Ernest Hemingway. As the story goes, Hemingway was once challenged to tell a story in six words. He came up with this:

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

Six-word memoirs are a profound and creative way to think about your life, your surroundings, your reality and ultimately yourself. Is yours a tale of success, or a roller-coaster?
