I can never understand why people make it seem like it’s such a bad thing to have your cake and eat it, too? I mean, cake is good! But that’s besides the point. OK, if I earned a piece of cake, I deserve to eat it. Achieving your goals in life, means you deserve a reward. When you receive an award, you should also be allowed to enjoy it.
I will be the first to admit that I want my cake, and to eat it, too. If that makes me selfish or anything else, then so be it.
