Piece of Cake

Sunday, February 28, 2016

Kate Spade is using this quote on her bags and although I like the meaning, this quote rubs me wrong. I'm going to get it off my chest here and tell you why. Here is the thing, there are different types of happiness. There is the low risk and work type which usually have low pay off like the rush you get from sugar, and then there are things that require more work and/or risk that have a longer lasting real happiness effect. I can do crack and get a false elated sense of happiness for a few hours, but it's not good for me in the long run. Crack (or cake) will not make your life a better place. It will not make you happy. I am not going to look back on the memory with happiness. At the end of my life, I am not ever going to think, "man i am so happy I ate all that cake for breakfast". I might say, "I am glad I watched all those sunsets". At 80, I may say, "I am sure glad I started to treat my body right".. but really I am going to look back at moments, vacations, friends, loved ones, accomplishments... thats where the real meat and potatoes of life is. I say go have hot sex and forget about the cake. I get the meaning is do what makes you happy, but there is not true happiness in cake. True happiness is often found in those things that you put energy into like maintaining friendships
