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.

Look up, enjoy where you are.

Moving around and traveling a lot for work this past year, I realized that I was living life point to point, and not enjoying the time in between. I realized that we always are looking forward in life, which makes us miss out on the beauty of living. I remind myself that changing your perspective just a little can make all the difference. So just remember to Look Up, and Enjoy Where You Are. (Smile is optional)
