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.

Any dance can be our last

I am not sure if I ever wrote and/or "published" this one but it is becoming increasingly more important to walk out this philosophy. It is trite to say "YOLO"...as well as annoying as hell to hear said phrase. However, this image of last dancers and the underlying meaning grounds me. In the midst of discussions about medication choices, physical issues, job demands, social events, and finances it comes down to this....my husband and I are here together today. What will we do to make this day count?
