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.

Mom says, "Happiness is a choice!"

Whenever I am feeling down and I am not willing to do anything my mom always says "Happiness is a choice!" The reason she says this is because it really is a choice. You can choose to be all gloom and doom OR you can choose to be HAPPY! Who wants to be all gloom and doom. Am I right?
