I know that the complexity game is also innate within each of us females. There is most often a reason why that boy said that particular thing at the moment he chose to say it.
When really, the boy was just trying to say that he liked your shirt-no hidden agenda, no alternative motive. In fact, I can recall many specific times that my friends and I would sit around analyzing what a boy said, or texted, or facebooked. Sad but all too true. And I'm not crazy, it's just the way I am. Thankfully, over the course of time I have learned that most of the time when it comes to boys, things can just be taken the way they are said. Simple.
This past Tuesday night I watched Forrest Gump-a really great movie. And as I was watching it I realized how attracted I am to how simple Forrest views the world. Actually I was envious, because if you really lay it down...life isn't all that simple. As a matter of fact, it is complex. The real change comes in how we decide to look at a problem, a word, a situation...whatever. We can look at it complex or we can look at it simple. I'd like to think from this moment on I'll look at it simply, through the eyes of a child....or through rose colored glasses, or whatever they say...but I probably won't. :)
