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.

Too much being, not enough nothingness.

by notjustagirlintheworld on March 26, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Working on finding myself in the stillness of what lies beneath all the being busy. Trying to overcome the need to always be becoming something or be going somewhere and just be what is not something aka nothingness. It occurs to me that we have it all backwards, we are 'building in' time to "be" (still) to relax. rather than being still and relaxed and building in time to do doing 'things.' I want to change my default settings.
