2013-03-13: Things To Say Before You Die (Part 1)

I read an article awhile ago that I thought was worth sharing. It’s called “40 Things To Say Before You Die”.
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 lese 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.
