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.

Want what ya'have/ not what ya'don'ave!*

by Dhani on April 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is what happens when the memoirist attempts to squeeze eight (8) pearls of wisdom into six (6). The orginal quote reads:
'Want what you have, not what you don't have',

uttered out of the 'Horse's Mouth' in Neale Donald Walsch's New Age Thriller: 'Friendship With God, An Uncommon Dialogue'.
