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.

Aspired, too; prevent further heart disease?

by Passerby on January 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The human heart: the four-chambered pump that quickly sends warm, oxygen-rich blood through the vessels in our body, nourishing, purifying, and keeping the flesh pliable. It is so sensitive to what we do - it can speed up from a sound or movement. It can be strengthened when a cause is brought to mind. It can be hurt by stress, physical and mental. I wish I had protected mine more thoroughly, but with what I have left I aspire to foster healthy habits for it - starting with diet, exercise, and meditation.

Always moving, internally massaging, changing, this organ can be opened by positive change or closed by ignorance concerning what is beneficial.
