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.

Allowed myself one day of self-pity.

That was yesterday.

Today, I got up. Brushed myself off (figuratively). Took a long shower (literally). Went through the motions in the morning. Came back. Ate a little. And had the most productive day in as long as I can remember. I accomplished over a weeks worth of tasks in some areas and got caught up in everything that I needed to do. Honestly, it feels liberating. Yesterday is still nagging at me, but today I put that energy to good use instead.
