I usually don't...

...take the advice of celebrities to heart, but I thought to share these words from Skateboard P. (creator of Ice Cream kix --see inset picture) with our readers, as they resonated strongly with me:

"I try to tell these kids, 'cause I've got this resource center in Virginia Beach, I tell them, "Yo don't do what you think is going to make you the most money, because there's a lot of people with a lot of money who are not happy. You'll realize that you wasted your whole life for a dollar, and you ain't really happy. What you need to do is find out what you love and do that, and you'll have a happy ass life. You might not be the richest, but in your heart and in your mind you'll be rich." I gotta tell you man, a lot of people tell me, "You don't know what it's like to be this or to go through that," and I tell them, "Yeah I do, because I came from that!" At the same time, I see other people who've got way more money than me, but because they don't do what they love and they don't love anything more than money they're always upset and s**t. To be a billionaire with no wife, what kind of life is that? Random b*tches can't hold you over for the rest of your life, unless that's what you want. If you want a full, healthy life, and to be good with your own family, to teach and give-because that's what's fulfilling to me. I guess to each his own. I just try to tell the kids that it's more important to do something that you love to do. There's more to life than just what you see on MTV, it really is-there's more to life."

That's word life.
