My Life in Six Words?
It's Saturday Centus time...Yayyyyy!! This is the weekly challenge to create a story, poem, song, novella or Haiku from an idea or prompt given by the illustrious Jenny Matlock, Off On My Tangent. Normally we are given a DECENT amount of words to work with, but this week is payback. We are to write our autobiography using only six, that's right, words. Since I usually have to delete words from my pieces because they are too long...like this paragraph, I feel particularly challenged to sum up my life in six words, but here goes:
ETERNAL HOPE THROUGH DESPAIR AND JOY
My first thoughts were "I party like there's no tomorrow," or "finders keepers losers weepers nanny nanny." How about "eat to live; live to eat?" But then I haven't always been connected to these particular words. I think "despair" and "joy" are feelings we've all had, coming or going. But I've always had hope for "better days" through it all, especially the joyful days when I hoped to pass that feeling on to someone who needed it.
