my resignation

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 think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.

I want to return to a time when life was simple.  When all I knew were colors, most of my multiplication tables, and a few nursery rhymes.  All I knew was to be happy and I was blissfully unaware of all the things that should make me worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair.  That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe anything is possible.

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’s bills, illness, and the loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, kind words, truth, justice, peace, dreams, imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So here is my check book and my car keys, my credit card bills and all my statements.  I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further, you’ll have to catch me first, cause…


p.s. you might’ve read this before, but if you’re like me, you would see no harm in reading it again.
