“Swam in mud. Recovered inner lotus.”—The Best Six-Word Memoirs Of The Week

Best Sixes of the Week ending 11:14:14There’s something about the nature of change—whether it’s time passing, relationships evolving, or perspectives shifting—that effects us deeply. This week, Sixers shared their insights on change in its most intimate and reflective iteration: personal growth. From the playful (“Why not purple hair at 35?”) to the hopeful (“Lived past prognosis. Sky’s the limit.”), our memoirists found positivity in a process that might otherwise be daunting. Although transitions are inevitable, these Sixes emphasize that we should embrace those silver linings (“Stop counting minutes, start counting memories.”). —Caroline Goldstein
