The phrase "You can't have your cake and eat it too" has always confused me. I mean, it is cake..it has really only one purpose in life and that is to be eaten. I am not going to spend money and time on a cake and then not eat it. You can only really eat the cake as well if you have it. That would be a bastard move to have someone else's cake and eat it too, right?
No one ever says that about other items.."You can't have your car and drive it too"..I am just saying, whoever came up with that should not have gotten the acclaim that they got. Now the guy who came up with "Don't worry, be happy" should be happy and feel satisfaction with his bumper sticker and t-shirt empire but not the cake guy.
So really though, don't you ever feel that way though..that you are not allowed to have something you really want and feel free to enjoy it at the same time? We are almost taught that is pretty much shooting the moon or impossible but I disagree. I believe that you can have the things you want and dream about and that when you do get to actualize them that you should dive in and indulge like there is no tomorrow. So what do you have in your life right now that you don't fully enjoy because you feel as though you should not? Today..enjoy it. Stop and spoil yourself in it.
Live your life to find gratitude in the things you have, use them, enjoy them and don't take them for granted. Live your life to acquire the things you want and dream about. I mean, if you are going to acquire and have cake..you should certainly eat it too.
Let them eat cake.
