I’ve always been into quotes and sayings—and understanding what they mean. So a few years ago ( for about a year or two—pretty crazy! ) I was fixated on a really common saying that “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” And I just kept thinking… “What does that mean? Why can’t you have your cake and eat it too?”
If you’re wondering, a quick Google search will tell you it means “if you eat your cake you won’t have it any more. The point is that if you eat your cake right now you won’t have it to eat later.”
I don’t believe that… LOL.
So I kept thinking about it. And I realized, you CAN—you CAN have your cake and eat it too. You just have to always be baking.
Meaning, you have to always be producing. And when you think about it it makes a lot of sense.
How can you have money and spend it too? Well, you have to constantly be making money. ( Or at least, making more money than you spend. )

I wanted to share it with you guys because it’s been on my mind a lot lately.
Right now, I think about it as I need to always be producing content. That’s something I’ve been focusing on right now: producing more content for JOYFETTI & JOY Consulting Co.
So, what do you think about the expression “You can’t have your cake & eat it too”? Do you believe it? Or do you agree with my thought that you CAN have your cake & eat it too. You just have to always be baking! ; ) Would love to hear!
Speaking of cake…
