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 Subway and think that it's a four star restaurant
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and
make ripples with rocks.
I want to think M&M's 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 day.
I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colours, multiplication tables
and nursery rhymes,
but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didnt care.
All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of
all the things that should make you worried or upset.
That everyone is good and honest.
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.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news.
I want to believe in the power of a smile, of hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace and dreams.
The imagination, and making angels in the snow, of seeing rainbows, jumping in puddles & dancing in the rain.
So...here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit cards and all my responsibility.
I have officially resigned from adulthood.
If you want this too then you'll have to catch me first
"Tag! You're it!"
