My Resignation

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an eight-year-old again.

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 a sidewalk with rocks.

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

I want to 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 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 simply again. I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive when there are more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness and loss of loved ones.

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

I want to play with my pets and my days of imagination to last forever

So here are my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my 401(k) statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first because,"Tag! You're it!"

    I was thinking about this yesterday while watching my granddaughter and her friend (both are 6) playing grownup. There they were with the feather boa, barbie high heels (well for them) with feather doodahs on them, one had a poodle purse and they both had on jewelry bling. They would walk downstairs so we would comment on how beautiful they looked and then go back upstairs.

If the parents were too busy to notice, they would come by me. Of course, MeeMaw would!

What a hoot!

  It would be nice to jump ropes, play jacks, hang out with friends and not worry about all those adult things, but,,,,,,,

    I spent the afternoon flying kites with my kids, hula hooping and racing my 10 and 8 year old sons rolling down a hill. I think I already resigned, and I like it!

    That was delightful. And the whole time we were 8 we could not wait to grow up and be in charge. No such thing is there? So now we need to remember that inner child you just described so well. Off to find the Easter bunny. emoticon

    Great wants; it's all a matter of attitude ... outlook, perspective, whatever - in any case getting that child's point of view back is a matter of moving the mind over a bit! I am gonna see if I can let that happen today! Thanks!
