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.

You've chosen it not lived it

by sisterpoet on January 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

These very simple yet profound words were spoken to me recently. I know and believe that walking out my choice is to set myself up for the unknown. And I try not to focus on the unknown as clearly I can not prepare for what I do not even know is coming. I said "I made my choice". I said I was sure about my choice. He said he would not ask me anymore if I was ok with my choice. Yet, the reminder...spoken or hidden deep in our hearts and minds...remains ever present. There is a life ahead of us. We will live it one day at a time, one choice at a time.
