Want to Resign From Your First Color?

When the stresses of your Color(s) get a little high, or are about to impact others (the dark side of your Colors from the Advanced seminar), maybe try this ‘resignation.’ Or at least daydream about it for a few minutes:

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 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 basic things like 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 and kind. 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 less of my to-do lists, planning, stress, over-thinking and worries. I want to live simple again. I don’t want my day to consist of 50 emails, paperwork, masks, social distancing, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, bills, gossip, and illness. 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 check book and my car keys and my credit card bills. 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.” (Adapted from Author Unknown)
