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.

I'm so happy I've made mistakes.

by MelMellyM on March 28, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've recently decided that some of the best things I've done in life are the mistakes I've made.

Failing has taught me more than succeeding ever has. What not to do, how to try harder, what to avoid next time.

My mistakes have been my best teachers. I appreciate everything they've shown me. I will honor the lessons I've learned and learn from the new lessons to come.
