40 Things To Say Before You Die

40 Things To Say Before You Die 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. Jessica Hagy,

5 “I’m terrified.” Fear is an asset. It can save you from danger and alert you to trouble. Don’t ignore the tingles that run up and down your spine.

6 “I don’t know how to do this.” It’s better to admit it and learn than to fake it and embarrass yourself.

11 “I don’t care.” Being able to discern between what’s important and what’s trivial is a skill that will save your sanity and your schedule.

12 “I earned this.” There’s a layer of proud ownership over everything you possess that wasn’t merely given to you.

14 “Tell me more.” Really getting to know someone (or some topic) will help you better triangulate your own place in the world.

16 “That was my contribution.” Own what you’ve worked to create—that’s how your presence will be felt long after you’re gone.

17 “Get out.” It’s always harder to take back an invitation than to give one, but protecting yourself from personified trouble is always worth the effort.

19 “Hold the mayo.” Ask for the little things on a regular basis and you’ll find that it’s easier to make larger demands on occasion.

21 “Damn, I look good.” You come from a long line of people who convinced others to sleep with them. Remember that.

23 “Isn’t this beautiful?” The more often you notice the gorgeous world around you, the happier you’ll be.

24 “I quit.” Not everything is worthwhile, and sometimes we don’t find that out until we’re in the middle of a rotten situation.
