Well, I bet you are scratching your head in open disagreement. You cannot have your cake and eat it too!
In other words, you cannot eat your cake and keep it for another day. It is not humanly possible!
Maybe it is.
What if I chose to bake a REALLY giant cake and sliced it into a million pieces? Imagine a huge dome cake. I would then have the privilege of eating one cake a day for a long time, probably a lifetime!
Yummy by the way.
Let’s forget about the cake, though – for now!
Food aside, let us look at the same situation in real-life. How possible is it for you and me to balance between work and life without affecting one or the other?
In other words, how can you work REALLY hard and live REALLY happily without offending people around you? It is the same like asking, how can we have our cake and still eat it – with relish?
Well, big question!
It is no brainer we live in a fast and really mad world that worships money beyond comprehension. We are literally on our toes 24/7 in order to earn so that we can place food on the dinner table, and somehow be happy.
To achieve these, we are made to wake up early in the morning and work ourselves to death in order to make a few pennies.
The routine goes on year after year until the creator takes us away.
How then do you have your cake and eat it, all at the same time?
The bittersweet relationship between LIFE and WORK demands that we opt for the latter above everything else. The need to survive and see the next day, at least for the global majority, is like a game of chess.
We are cast to the sides if we play the wrong PAWN.
Consequently, we spend most of our lives working, and less time enjoying life with family and friends!
Food for thought
You can actually have your cake and eat
