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.

my guiding thought for 2014: BALANCE

by Raven_OKeefe on January 1, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

rather than a list of resolutions for each new year, I choose one overall guiding thought or concept to keep in mind all year long, in everything I do, and this year it is BALANCE. it's all too easy for our lives to become unbalanced little by little, and before we realize it, we're totally off center. when this happens in our bodies, we develop spinal problems, nerve damage, all sorts of nasty health problems. but when it happens in our lives, the damage is just as bad but harder to recognize. I guess I'd say its main symptoms are unhappiness and anxiety. so I am going to do my best to get better balanced this year, among the various key areas of my life. wish me luck! :-)
