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.

Words tucked away resurface when needed

Today I was talking with my acupuncture lady, telling her I thought I'd just give up on finding a love interest. I have my reasons, mostly based on not-so-good experiences. She didn't seem convinced this was a good idea.

When I returned home, I was looking for something not related to this conversation at all. I opened one of my journals and out falls a card I've had for years and years. It has a quote (directive) by Maya Angelou:

"Have enough courage to trust Love one more time. And always one more time."

Hmmmm, well Dr. Angelou, I may just rethink my thought!
