Describe Your Life in 6 Words

February 1, 2010

For the past few weeks my local newspaper, the Kansas City Star, has been requesting readers to send in their autobiographies. But they didn’t want full-length novels. They wanted an autobiography of our lives using just six words.

I thought this was fascinating and went to work thinking about what mine would be. A few entries the paper shared that I loved:

“Went to college. Came home pregnant.”

“Born naked, raised Catholic, love fashion.”

“Went for it…almost always succeeded.”

“Life’s funny secret: some assembly required.”

“I look like a great cook.”

And it didn’t take me long to come up with my own:

Now, everything I have always wanted.


So, what’s yours? If you had to describe your life – now, then, in the future, whatever – using only 6 words, how would you do it?
