Since Asa's birth I've learned more about myself and other people than I did during the previous 29 years.
I learned about friendship and fear, about my shortcomings and strengths, about expectation and the power of thought. I learned that I know very, very little in general.
I learned that some times it's better just to let go of relationships rather than feeling the need to work at them. I learned about meeting people where they are at. I learned about asking for help.
I learned that there's a lot I need to work on and that is ok.
I learned that karma is real, both bad and good.
Most importantly, I learned that comparing yourself to others will never end well. Maybe I am still working on learning this lesson.
Oh yeah, I also learned that I don't give a rat's arse about the latest shopping trends-not even close.
