Simple things...

Why as adults do we make life so complicated? At what age do you reach where you stop seeing things as they are and not try to make them something they aren't?

Life is meant to be simple.

Not complicated.

Just ask any child.

I over-analyze everything. EVERYTHING. Every little detail. It's very obsessive and annoying and it doesn't do me or the fifty people I am asking to hash it out with me any good. Do you think sometimes that we over-analyze issues because we are trying to get the answer we really want? Knowing that the answer we truly want isn't at all the answer that we will get.

You get me?

I wish I was a little kid again...for lots of reasons. One in particular is because as a child you view the world differently, you view the world as it is. Just that. You don't judge. You sure as hell don't care what you are wearing or how you will be received. If you want to wear a pink tutu with cowboy boots and a tiara. You do, because your six and you can get away with it. At 26, people may think you are crazy. Just a little.

The reason I say all this, is because I was recently playing with the most adorable three year old. I just love her to pieces. I was having a rough day to go with a very rough week. Needless to say, I just wasn't feeling it...I didn't feel pretty, I didn't feel like being there or anywhere, it was just one of those days.

The first thing she said to me was, "Hello Lyndse, you are so pretty today...you can have my doughnut hole's."

That statement coming from a three year old, seriously made everything better. For one, who doesn't like to be told they look pretty and who doesn't like doughnuts?

See, it's the simple things.

She's a smart kid. And right. PS - I would give you my doughnuts too.

A lady I work with has a son who is about three and this morning he told her, "Mom, have a good day at work. Don't bite anyone." Ha! Kids are so stinking cute.

LOVE this!

You said a mouthful about us with this line: Do you think sometimes that we over-analyze issues because we are trying to get the answer we really want?

Um....yes. I think that's EXACTLY why we do it.

Ugh girl you took the words right out of my mouth. I had a breakdown after work today and just cried. I looked forward to adult life so much in college, and many parts of it are great, but it can be so hard. I wish there was a guarantee that everything would turn out all right and we would all be happy!
