I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year old again.
I want to go to McDonald’s and think it is a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
I want to think that M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer’s day.
I want to return to a time when life was simple; When all you knew were Colors, multiplication tables and nursery rhymes, but that didn’t bother you because you didn’t know that you didn’t know and you didn’t care.
All you knew was to be happy, because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that make you worried or upset.
I want to think that the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible. I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again. I don’t want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness and the loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.
So… here’s my checkbook and my car-keys, my credit card bills and my 401 statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood,
And if you want to discuss this further, you’ll have to catch me, cause………….
…………………………………”TAG!!!! You’re it. “
I was pondering that today about what was the happiest time of my life - It was when I was about 9 and went fishing everyday with my grandpa his lake, all we had to do was make it home in time for dinner, and we worked cattle horseback when we did our "real jobs" life was easier then!
That is great!!!!!! I love it, do you want company? And
TAG your it. lolol.
