Chances are you or someone you know is moving this summer. Most moves involve a change in geography, although some moves occur without any change of address. Sometimes it’s a change in work, school, or relationship status; sometimes it’s all of the above. Whether you are packing up by choice or circumstance, and moving on literally or figuratively, transition and reflection go hand-in-hand. The team at Six Words wishes you well if you are knee-deep in boxes this summer or starting a new chapter. Our advice on moving: “Hydrate, take breaks, write a six.” Six-Word Memoirs offer a great way to recharge your batteries when you are long on thoughts, but short on time.

    I want to express my appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of such a difficulty. After scouting through the online world and finding ways which are not productive, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Being alive without the answers to the issues you’ve resolved by way of your good website is a serious case, and ones that might have in a negative way affected my career if I had not come across your site. Your good competence and kindness in touching every item was important. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a point like this. I’m able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for your reliable and result oriented help. I won’t think twice to endorse your web blog to anybody who would like direction on this matter.
