Brevity: The Six Word Memoir

The challenge:  write a six word memoir.  Six words?  How can I cram my life into just six words?  How the heck do I do that?  I do love a challenge, though.  (Hey, that's six words.)  Here it is, my six word memoir, summing up everything I know about life and my attempts to have a healthy, successful existance despite all challenges.  Can I do it?:

I don't know, but I'll try.

Here's the rules to this crafy little meme: 

  1. Write your own six word memoir;
  2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like;
  3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere;
  4. Tag at least five more blogs with links; and
  5. Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!
I was tagged by Amylia.  In return, I'm tagging:  Nicole, Carey, Bennet, Allison, and my soon-to-be married bloggy pal Melissa.


No! Try not. Do or do not. There is no try. ~Master Yoda

Yup. That about sums it up.
Thanks for playing along. I love reading these "bumper sticker" slogans of our lives.

Thank you, Master Yoda. :)

Thanks for the tag!

Well I don't blog, but the 6 words came to me immediately, because they perfectly summarize the two stages of my life-so-far.

Hated my job. Now I write.

And my diabetes life? Cheated a little (okay, a lot) by combining words (shrug), but this sums it up.

Test 10x/day, thirty years, mostly complication-free.

Very nice Kerri - I like that quite a bit.

Says so much in six little words.

What grows is what you feed.

I can’t say anything that briefly

Thanks for playing my meme, I enjoyed reading your blog. My one-year-old niece was just diagnosed with acute onset Type 1, scary stuff:(
