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.

Realize the greatness of your spirit.

"You give your power away when
1. You no longer believe in yourself.
2. You don't see any beauty in yourself.
3. You don't trust your intuition.
4. You think others are so much greater or smarter than you.
5. You depend on others for that which you can do for yourself.
6. You don't realize the greatness of your own spirit.

It doesn't have to be this way. You didn't come to this earth to give all your power away. Do yourself a favor and Take Your Power Back."

- James Weeks from Across The Kings River
