A sign of something

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life|Ottawa

I spotted this sign at the Golden Ave. Bridgehead in Westboro last week, and it got me thinking:Life is too short
I was prepared to fill it out. I knew what I wanted to say but I was reluctant to commit it to paper in front of a coffee shop full of people. In the end I walked away.

Maybe I’ll go back and check on it. Would you add something to it, if you had the chance?

… not enjoy a piece (or two) of a good chocolate.

… not spend a lot of time with the kids.

… sweat the small stuff.

Life is too short for regrets. Do it now, whatever it is.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
