Resignation From Adulthood

Author Unknown

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 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 loss of loved ones. I want to go to McDonald's 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&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 what 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 should make you worried or upset.

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 the keys to my car, my company badge, my credit card bills, my 401K statements and all 32 of my computer passwords. I am officially resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause ... TAG! You're it.

Thank you for posting that Gecko. If only some of that wide-eyed innocence would linger on into our adulthood.

Sigh...and i'm only 18! but oh to be 8 again...
bella, 'wide-eyed innocence' decays when one approaches adulthood. the word here is 'jaded'.
and it's sad that these days the younger ones loose their innocence so much quicker.

My favorite part is the bit about being "blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset." I love that. That is how life was for me when I was a kid, although I didn't know it at the time. Time passes so quickly now, and my mind races so much from so many things that I can't even sleep anymore. Sometimes I stop and think about my childhood, and wish that just once, for one day, I could go back and relive it. I am glad that I did not know then how the sparkle of life disappears as we grow older.
