A heartwarming thread about tips for a good life has gone viral on Twitter. New York entrepreneur and content creator Sahil Bloom recently tweeted the 40 pieces of advice he got from 90-year-olds ahead of his 32nd birthday.

He asked them what advice they would give to their 32-year-old selves and shared the responses with his 834-thousand followers. Bloom’s tweet racked up 19.5-million views in just a few days and this is some of the life advice he says everyone should hear:

  • “Now and then, break out the fancy china and drink the good wine for no reason at all.”
  • “Dance at weddings until your feet are sore.”
  • “Tell your partner you love them every night before falling asleep. Someday you’ll find the other side of the bed empty and wish you could.”
  • “Don’t fear sadness, as it tends to sit right next to love.”
  • “Treat your body like a house you have to live in for another 70 years.”
  • “Never raise your voice, except for at a ballgame.”
  • “Do one good deed every single day, but never tell anyone about it.”
  • “Time doesn't heal anything when it comes to relationships. Don't delay difficult conversations.”
  • “Find the things that make your eyes light up. Do more of those.”
  • “Always remind yourself that your track record for making it through your bad days is perfect.”
  • “If something has a minor issue, repair it. Minor issues become major issues over time. Applies equally to love, friendships, health, and home.”
  • “The most damning lie you can tell is the lie you tell to yourself.”
  • “No one has ever argued their way to happiness.”
  • “You may occasionally disappoint others, but make sure to never disappoint yourself.”
  • “Never let a good friendship atrophy. Send the text, make the call, plan the trip. Good friendships must be treasured.”
  • “The ‘good old days’ are always happening right now.”
  • “Taking no risk is the biggest risk you can take. Regret from inaction is always more painful than regret from action.”
  • “It doesn’t have to be perfect for it to be wonderful.”
  • “Do one thing that challenges your mind every single day. A crossword puzzle, math problem, anything. Daily ‘exercise’ will keep your mind sharp for the long haul.”
  • “When in doubt, love. We can always use more love.”
