Kind of sounds like a little kid doesn't it? Actually it was what I was saying last night at the end of my birthday...I ain't got no cake!
I love cake. All things cake. And this new found focus on cupcakes...LOVE IT!
So yesterday on my birthday I was expecting a birthday cake from my mom. Our parents are home for the winter for the first time in almost 20 years. What a perfect time for her to make my birthday cake. I don't care how old you are...your mom is still your mom and part of the universal mom job description is maker of birthday cakes.
Okay maybe I made that part up BUT in my world that's what it looks like. :)
Anyway...no cake. I was at their house and got a very lovely card and a present but I kept waiting for the cake to come out. Alas no cake. I have to say I was like the little kid...saying in my car on the way home..."I ain't got no cake!"
Being an adult I did not say "Where is my cake?" and make her feel bad because clearly it was only my expectation...and I can write it here because she never reads my stuff. :) But with that said...I was still thinking about it when I woke up. *Remember one of my themes this year is focus! LOL!!!
Then over my coffee this morning...BOOM... I realized yet once again that no one but me is responsible for bringing joy and what I want into my life and that includes a birthday cake.
When you place your wants in someone else's hands you are abdicating your responsibilty for your own happiness.
Duh...how did I miss that once again?
It's a great lesson to remember. Like an extra birthday present...one I will "use" this year as I go forward towards the year I am creating.
Now I must busy...I have eggs to crack and a fabulous cake to whip up!
