The Cake lesson

(no idea where I got this, it is beautiful though)

I was walking alone and this hit me. I just had to share it:

“Cake is funny, it’s creation is analogous¬†to ¬†your life journey. When you put all the ingredients on the table it doesn’t make sense. It won’t make sense until it’s being blended and created into the finished product.

We look at it backward. We see the cake and trace its roots to a bunch of ingredients that were sitting on a table or in a fridge. We rarely look at the bunch of ingredients and think “This will be a cake one day.”

We have to learn to see our successes and life path going forward, instead of waiting and focusing on attaining the finished product and then tracing it backward. Be happy with the right now, appreciate the contrast, the confusion and the creation process of your life. One day, all the ingredients you ‘struggle’ with, will come together and make a wonderful product.”

P.s. No I didn’t tell you to eat cake -__-, you can have a slice of this analogy though ;).

Please note: No cake was consumed in the making of this post. Any endorsement to eating cake is just speculation and not on the part of the writer.
