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.

Wow. What a lovely, lovely day.

Learned heaps while hosting coaching talks with my first year students.

A colleague said "it was fun to work with you" after hosting a dialogue with international students about their learning experience in Holland.

Then, saw an inspiring movie ("NO") with the lovely company of Juan (a real nice guy and maybe... a potential date?).

AND the Dominican Republic won the World Baseball Classic championship.

Oh, and I bumped into my ex-husband (we split up 10 years ago) and it was great to feel that we still care.

I'm happy, inside out. And grateful, by all means.
