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.

Change is always, and already, happening.

Even at the basic cellular level, change is always, and already, happening. Trying to fight it, trying to hold onto things or wanting them to stay exactly the same, is a tremendous cause of stress. Accepting THAT things will change is the key. You don't have to "accept the change" as is - but if you roll with it, you have a much better chance of coming out ok than if you stand stock still and refuse to budge.

It's the flexible branch that bends, the rigid one that snaps.

So much easier said than done - but, then, we don't grow and get stronger when it's easy, do we.
