How I wish I could return to that life that was once simple. With no huge responsibilities, simple ideals and when I was never affected by the pressure of the survival of the fittest.
A life when I was not disturbed even without handphone, PC, credit cards (or the bigger 5Cs) or a property of my own.
Aww…How I wish I could resign from adulthood and be able to live like a child once again. So, it is so important that as a parent, I enable my two boys to enjoy the simple joy of childhood as much as they could while they are still young. Somehow, children these days are robbed of their carefree life earlier than our times. Agree?
As at today, I had officially resigned from my career for 5 months. With a main responsibility of immersing in the world of two children everyday, it’s VALUABLE being able to appreciate a simple life from the eyes of a child. Truly, I have never felt so relieved before.
Hmmm…it’s all about searching for bigger happiness in simplicity. Yeap, must cherish till I return to the society again *haiz*.
To my sons : Trust me. Must cherish the simpler life that you have now. Enjoy!
Interesting poem. Extacted from internet.
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 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 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 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 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 my car keys, my credit cards and all my responsibility.
I am officially resigning from adulthood.
