25 lessons i’ve learned in 2012 | by A-SKI

Most people do New Year’s Resolutions, I decided to go the opposite direction and recap valuable lessons and trials over the year. A resolution to me is more of another proponent in procrastination (why wait till the New Year if you had not reflected what you gained in the past year?). So here goes..

1. Family first.

2. Health is paramount.

3. Feels great to stop paying a credit card bill (and starting a retirement portfolio).

4. Going through the darkness to fully appreciate the light (grimy before shiny).

5. Community service is vital (voluntary of course).

6. What use to excite me at 25 is an appetizer for me these days (not the main course..still in the menu). 

7. Celebrate abundance.

8.  Watching the elders grow older is beautiful (but difficult to fully embrace).

9.  Money, people and status are musical chairs (don’t get excited).

10. I finally met BOBBY WOMACK and he is exactly as I figured!!! Epic! 

11. Staying creative (working with like minds that respect what you do is a blessing).

12. Letting the past stay where it is (you will be enslaved by it..instead of being inspired by it).

13. There is a crossroads with people you think that would be in your life forever (you still wish them well..all love..all good). 

14. There are those chosen few who stay consistent and loyal (y’all know who you are…thank you for ridin’ for me! champagne and good times for life! always love!!)

15. It has to be my way (everybody wins).

16. Keeping good counsel is worth more than money. 

17. Laying low (avoiding the shadows is the natural light). 

18. Laugh at yourself more (you’ll go crazy if you don’t). 

19. Im still obsessed with Stevie Wonder’s  “INNERVISIONS”. 

20. Feels good to play instruments and compose again. 

21. Ready to do some more traveling.

22. I have outgrown LA (all love..been there..cant do reruns). 

23. Staying in shape is the s–t! (I use to RUN from the gym ..now I run towards it!)

24. Seeking and gravitating toward higher frequencies is pure nirvana (shifting the focus).

25. Keep it humble in the rumble. 

bonus*

26. Never cry over spilled milk..get a better cow.
