6 is the new number.

After reading about the Six-Word Memoirs project by Smith Magazine over at Oh She Glows, I wanted to create a 6 word memoir of my own. The concept behind the Smith Magazine is to create an outlet for storytelling. Their creed is, “We believe everyone has a story, and everyone should have a place to tell it”.

So true.

In a time of complete access and constant communication, many times it can still be difficult to have a voice. In an age where chaos and outrageousness is celebrated, sometimes less is more.

Just six words. That’s all you need to make a statement. Honestly, I can think of a LOT of statements that require just one word, but many of those aren’t appropriate to say out loud (oh HI mom and dad!) 🙂

Therefore, six is the magic number. Six words to sum up a topic.

The topic? Happiness.

Here are some of the memoirs from the magazine:

Finally finding funding. Grant getting go-ahead.
