My Life Expressed In Six Words

Jaime Shine:

This post from the TED Blog captured my attention. Can you capture the essence of your life in only 6 words?

As an introvert, people often think I’m not participating in the world. But I am, in my own way. I’m also a nature lover, from my days growing up in a rural area, and a free spirit who loves life. Even as the quiet type, I love sky diving, paddle boarding, tubing, riding roller coasters and other thrill-seeking activities. My bucket list includes going in a shark cage and snorkeling with sharks.

Here are my takes at expressing my life in 6 words:

Introvert, introspective, smiling in the sunshine.
Living in my head, breathing fresh air.
Living out loud, in my way.

It’s a wonderful world, come in.
See the world through my eyes.
Born again, experiencing life first hand.

Free spirit awed by nature’s beauty.
Soaking in sunshine; my movie plays.
Starring in the movie of life.

Starting over, getting it right now.
Thinking, laughing, while the music plays.
Touched by nature, blessed by God.

Hello sunshine, come out and play.
In my head, living out loud.

What’s your favorite one?

In my head, living out loud–

Smith is still fascinated by the short tales people tell about themselves — especially those told by kids. And so he conceptualized the TED Book Things Don’t Have to Be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs by Students Making Sense of the World. The twist? Students would draw as well as write their six-word manifestos.

Smith sat down yesterday for a live chat on TED conversations. Read the full conversation or check out highlights below.

First off, Larry Smith asked: Can you define your life in 6 words?

“So far, so good. What’s next?” —Alan Russell

“In the womb of Knowledge, Reborn.” — Paul Kirhagis

 “Making the most of every opportunity.” — Elizabeth Gu

“Born and dreaming myself awake…

I love to write. While most kids were playing with blocks or dolls, I was publishing magazines and newspapers – feature articles, ads, sports box scores, the whole nine yards. From promotions director to advertising roles to branding projects, I’ve always been interested in all forms of marketing. That interest blossomed into a career path and led me to open my own business, which has always been a dream of mine. And I’d love to work my magic for you.
