40 Things To Say Before You Die
Originally appeared on Forbes.com
Before you’re sprawled on your deathbed, there are some things you really have to say. They’re not complicated. They’re not poetry.
They’re just short sentences with big meaning.
I hope they get you talking.
40. “I wonder.”
Give yourself time to think so the time you spend doing things will be better spent.
39. “Today was good.”
If you can say it once, you can say it again. And again. And again.
38. “I believe in this.”
A god, a plan, a company, a person, an idea—you have to put your faith in something.
37. “I’m not finished.”
Only you get to decide when your life’s work is done.
36. “Thank you for making this possible.”
Because nobody does anything alone. We’re driven and supported and thwarted by others at every turn.
35. “That’s enough.”
Food. Drink. Episodes of Law & Order. Pairs of shoes. Overtime. Articulating your own limits is powerful.
34. “I can do better.”
As soon as you say it, you’re that much closer to making it true.
33. “I’m sorry.”
But you can’t just say it; you have to mean it. Really mean it.
32. “I survived.”
Moments of danger are the plot points of an exciting life.
31. “You’re amazing.”
Let yourself be in awe of another person, and you’ll feel strong and weak simultaneously.
30. “I am home.”
Home is every adventure’s final destination and starting point—and we all need one to call our own.
29. “I did my best.”
If this is true, you did something amazing.
28. “How can I help you?”
Because you want people to come to your funeral, and if they can’t make it, at least they’ll miss you.
27. “I’m lucky.”
You are lucky, in a way that no one else is. Now, what are you going to do with your good fortune?
26. “I want that.”
Ask for it: that’s you get what you covet—from others and for yourself.
25. “This is wrong.”
If you never say it, you embody the statement.
