I Hereby Resign.......
To Whom It May Concern
I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of a 6 year old again.
I want to go to a fast food place and think its a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks.
I want to think that small sweets are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to play football at playtime and paint with watercolours in art.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and watch the ants march up its trunk.
I want to run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summers day.
I want to think a 5 pence piece is worth more than a £10 note cause it's prettier and weighs more.
I want to return to a time when life was simple. When all I knew were colours, addition tables and nursery rhymes. When i didn't know what I know now.
I want to believe that the world is fair.
I want to believe that everyone is good and honest and 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 be able to walk along the beach and think only of the sand between my toes and the prettiest seashell I can find.
I wouldn't worry about time, bills or where I was going to get the money to fix my car.
I want to live simple ....yeah...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 the loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, dreams, peace, justice, love, the imagination, mankind, Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy, a kiss that makes a boo boo go away and that my parents are the strongest and smartest people in the world.
I want to be 6 again.
Here's my cheque book and my car keys, my credit cards and the bills too, my stocks and bonds, my insurance premiums, my job, my house and the mortgage, my e-mail address, pager, cell phone, computer and watch.
And if you want to discuss this with me further you'll have to catch me first because
