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.

Discovered Self through their mirrored eyes.

By simply allowing me to see myself through their eyes, my dogs have transformed me and my life. Though they have taught me patience, courage, determination and how to find a moment of joy while standing in a place of great pain...my great challenge is to live up to the blissful adoration shining in their eyes as they greet me.
