What Will Be Your Last Words?

What Will Be Your Last Words?


David Cassidy died this week at the age of 67. While I don’t expect you to remember him, he was a bonefied teen star back in the 1970’s. He is best remembered for his starring role as Keith Partridge on the sitcom, The Partridge Family. He toured America as a pop-singer, selling out arena after arena. It didn’t last very long, but for a time, he was that “it” person in America.

David also struggled with alcohol and substance abuse most of his life. He was married three times and had two estranged children. He had a lot of regrets for the way he lived his life. As a result, his dying words were, “So much wasted time.”

Joe’s Perspective: The goal of life should be to live it so you don’t have too many major regrets. We all have regrets. I wish I had handled a situation differently or treated someone better. However, at the end of your life you want to feel proud of the way you lived and the choices you made.  David let drugs get the best of him for years. Because of it, he was a lousy husband and father. Now, that’s real regret. My advice is don’t let that be you.

Your Turn: When it’s all said and done, what do you want your last words to be?

  1. My last words would be “ To be your self and be happy don’t spend your life making others happy at the end people come and go”.

  2. No matter how you handle a situation always look for a way to better yourself so that you are prepared for anything else to come down the road. Don’t live your life in regret do something to Change what your regretting.

  3. “Be kind to everyone”
    even though it’s somthing I’m not always good at, it’s somehing i would like other to live by because not only will it make yourself feel better, but it will also help you feel better by making someone else happy.

  4. I would like my last words to be I enjoyed life while it lasted and it taught me valuable lessons; along with knowing I made a positive change in numerous lives.

  5. When people think of me I want them to think of me as a nice person.
    “Be kind to everyone. You don’t know what they are going through.”

  6. My last words would have to be “ be grateful for what you have and never take anyone or thing for granted, because you can lose it in a matter of seconds. And change that may hurt at first can be the best thing to happen for you.”

  7. I would want my last words/live advice to be, “Make others’ lives better,” because I want people to remember me as a person who made their lives just a little bit happier.

  8. Nothing lasts forever. So live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama, take chances and never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.

  9. At the end of my lifetime, I want to be able to say that I lived my life to the fullest. All the relationships with family and friends to have no regrets or problems left unsolved. ” perfect run”

  10. I would want my last words to be “I did it.” Perhaps I don’t know what “it” is yet or maybe there’s a bunch of little “it”s but whatever “it” turns out to be, I want to have accomplished it.
