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.

Your joy holds the future's key.

Cup it in your hands. Drink it up. Let it wash over you in smiles and laughter. "Happiness is not a destination, it's a way of getting there."

If this moment is all that I am gauranteed, then I choose to squeeze as much happiness out of it as possible. Wishing you smiles and joy wherever you are in life right now!
