A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

You are in my heart always.

My mother died 6 months ago. It was always a difficult relationship. I think of her everyday, now. That wasn't my intention. I didn't do that when she was alive. She was not loving or nurturing, however, I am slowly realizing that she probably did the best she could. That insight has softened my view of her. Wherever her spirit is, and if it's even possible, I wish her the peace she didn't have when she was alive.
