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.

To the inner folks: You're perfect!

To those inner folks that live inside me, who feel they failed, please listen and believe--inner child, inner wife, inner daughter-in-law, inner stepmother--you were perfect. You tried so hard. You did your best. No one should have ever said otherwise to you. No one.

You were perfect. You still are.

As a recovering perfectionist, I don't use that term lightly. :)

So twirl, flourish, and enjoy life!
