15 Day Challenge: Day 2 Six-word Memoir

Linking up with Sar for the 15 Day Challenge. Here goes!

[Day 2] Write a (few) six-word memoir(s)

I wrote a few different memoirs, trying to come up with the perfect one. Not sure I was successful, but here is my favorite one:

Chose happiness. Shared well with others.

I think this pretty well sums up my life. Just like most of us, I've had my share of heartaches and disappointments. But I honestly think that you can choose how to to approach life, and I chose, and continue to choose, to be optimistic and happy. I strove to become that competent, even-tempered coworker that others wanted to work with rather than avoid. I tried to instill a good sense of self, and humor, in both my children, and am very happy with the adults they have become. They both have a wicked sense of humor! My marriage, like many others, has its ups and downs, but we chose to stay happy and stay together for the long haul. It's been 30 years, so I think we are successful on that front, too.

When others see the glass half empty, I'm ecstatic that I have a glass at all, and that's there's even something in it! Woo Hoo! I can't imagine living life any other way.


Be sure to link up with Sarah to share your memoir!



  1. Congrats on thirty years of marriage! It's rare that people make it that long anymore and it's encouraging to find someone who has!

  2. Wow 30 years of marriage! Congratulations :) I think your line is really beautiful and it has so much importance.

    Good luck with the challenge!

  3. You not only shared well with others, you taught us to love with all our hearts. You're the best mom alive.

  4. 30 years! Wow! I hope for the same happiness! =]
