If I had to do it all over again...

  • Not hesitate to try new foods. Tandoori Machhi, yes please!
  • Invest in some funds for the future. Buy that stock.
  • Wear more colour. Flattering or not.
Listened more
  • To my father's army stories in Mozambique. I need to share them with my children.
  • To the calm silence that fills our house. It's our safe place.
  • To the noise that fills our home. Laughter, cries, song, music – it's our life.

  • Take more photos and write more journals. About how Grandma always pretends to be scared at the same Halloween costume that your brother wore last year.
  • Stop running around the table serving and cleaning up during the holidays and sit and take part in the gift unwrapping instead.
  • Take a day off work to volunteer for school trips.
Talked more
  • Tell people "I'm wrong." I can be.
  • Tell people "I love you." I do.
  • Tell my parents how thankful I am. I am.
If you could do just one thing over again, what would you do?
