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.

Brightness cannot be defined without darkness.

I've always found with every horrible moment I've been through, it makes the good times feel so much better, and when things seem as if they'll never get better again, I just remember the good moments and have faith that ones like that will return. I take one of the happiest moments and save it for when I'm upset, then when I remember it, everthing becomes more "under-control".
