Who am I?

I was tagged by the lovely Lisa to do a pretty interesting meme.

The Meme originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure.

It's a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.

Here are the rules:
  1. Write your own six word memoir.
  2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
  3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
  4. Tag five more blogs with links.
  5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

.........................................

I have never been tagged before - and it seems like this one is pretty hard. I really thought about my 6 words. Six words to describe my life. I again thought the same way that Lisa thought - there are many things that define my life.

But after I thought about it, I came up with:

Cherish Today - Because Tomorrow it's Yesterday.

I actually remember writing something similar in my HS yearbook.

I really try not to have regrets in life. I remember seeing a quote somewhere that said, "Life Is What Happens When You Are Making Other Plans"

Life is a road trip. Sometimes you make a wrong turn, sometimes you find a shortcut, sometimes your destination changes. But, I always enjoy the ride.
