6 Words

I came across this article and video about "6 Word Memoirs" and how they put many people to test on what they would write. The history behind it was explained:

"The six-word memoir is said to be rooted in a bet between Ernest Hemingway and a friend — supposedly, the author claimed he could write a short story in just six words. (He won with “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”)"

So after watching this, I figured to put myself to the test. 

I won't lie, it's been a challenge to sum up so much happiness, grief, growth, setbacks, life and death in six words, but figured that in reality, six words is more then most of us get.

So here we go:

Lived for life, died for love.


What would yours be?
