RESIGNATION\n\nI am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided\nI would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.\n\nI want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.\n\n\n\nI want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with\nrocks.\n\nI want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.\n\nI want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends\non a hot summer's day.\n\nI want to return to a time when life was simple, when all you knew were\ncolors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother\nyou, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. All\nyou knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the\nthings that should make you worried or upset.\n\nI want to think the world is fair.\n\nThat everyone is honest and good.\n\nI want to believe that anything is possible.\n\nI want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by\nthe little things again.\n\nI want to live simple again.\n\nI don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,\ndepressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money\nin the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.\n\nI want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice,\npeace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.\n\nSo . . . here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my\n401K statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.\n\nAnd if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first,\ncause........\n\n\n\n......"Tag! You're it."\n\n\n\nPass this to someone and brighten their day by helping them remember the\nSimple Things in Life.
