“Impossible Just Takes a Little Longer.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs Of The Week

Best Six (Sept 6-11)-01

It is often said that life is a journey. This week’s Sixes make us realize that our journey doesn’t have to be rushed or flawless because it is always a work in progress. Some memoirs are about embracing imperfections (“My flaws lead to my discovery!”), while others recognize that modification is always an option (“Delete, edit, create the wishful life.”). And some Sixers trust that anything is achievable with time (“Impossible just takes a little longer.”). We are inspired to embrace life through all of its trials and tribulations. —Allison Volpe

Least flawed: “My flaws lead to my discovery!” —PhDink

Most meaning: “That one passion connecting all dots?” —Amapola

Toughest Narrative Arc: “No longer renting. Owning my mistakes.” —JohnBigJohn

Best attitude: “Impossible just takes a little longer.” —rratatat

Most adaptable: “Delete, edit, create the wishful life.” Nol_Martin-tungpala

Best query: “Ducks are lined up. Now what?” —trust2020
