Psh.....join the club!!! I don't even remember the last time I got what I wanted.....hence the saying "you can't always get what you want"......think about this, were the things you wanted only because of expectations through seeing others get/have those things? Were they things you TRULY wanted for yourself, or was it a sort of "keeping up with the Jones's" type of thing? A lot of time we think we want something only because the masses do/have it.....when in reality, if we stop to think for a second, we end up realizing that the things we "wanted" weren't even really our cup of tea.......hindsight is 20/20, we can't dwell on times/choices past either......hope this helped at least a bit.....8)

Wow! Cool! Is there really Lamb in there? Sort of like a Gaint Pate or Empenada!?
Or is it a sweet type cake? Some typical Easter thing??
And how would you do that all in one w/out 2-sided?
What tradition in your background?? And have you always liked to cook/bake?
Sry... You know me; what-where-how.. Lol!

It's a really simple cake recipe......and yes, there is a lamb shaped cake pan that has two halves to it.....I opted to NOT try and bake a "one piece" lamb....I just baked the two halves and then they got frosted together....8)

That's reality for you. Try not to depend on the things you want because in end you will be disappointed when you don't get them. Just remember that your not always going to get want you want but try to accomplish the things that you can.

Life is never fare and will not be fare to what we like in life. It could be you have not evaluated your goals and potential in life about what you can achieve which makes you believe you can achieve things beyond your means. I would encourage you to work harder and you might experience them.

Don't base all of the happiness you have in life off of getting what you want. I've got some of the material things I want, but in reality, it's the non-materialistic things that make me the happiest, like family, and spending time with the people I love.

There's a name for the phenomenon of not getting what you want. It's called "life". How you perceive it is all up to you. You can focus on the things you want and never got and make yourself feel miserable all the time or you can focus on the things you truly need and feel grateful that you have them. "Count your blessings" sounds like a corny cliche but there's a lot of good sense in it.

One of life's cruel tricks - you only start to know what you're doing once you're too old to go out and do it anymore.
