I commit once again to resigning from adulthood, want to join me?!


During the last few frenzied months, trying to figure out a way to make a living doing what I love and you will have gathered by now that it’s TRAVEL, I seem to have lost my way once again and forgot to enjoy life’s little moments and certainly to have more fun along the way.

I found myself swept away without my permission along the path of constant worry, anxiety and seriousness. But I felt I had to stop, retrace my steps and find a way again of letting go, revel in the moment and have faith that everything will fall into place in its own time.

I commit once again to resigning from adulthood and abandoning the land of broken dreams and reclaim those dreams as a road map to rediscovering the real ‘me’, inner peace and freedom! Will you join me?!

This was the very first post of my blog, but I thought I would share it with you all again:

I’m hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided that I don’t want to¬†feel the weight of responsibilities and feel like a zombie going through life without really noticing what’s all around me.

I want back my rose-tinted spectacles, endless sense of wonder and curiosity. I want to jump in naked in a bottomless sea, roll down a grassy hill and see what happens, be given piggybacks and squeal with laughter, gaze at the stars and discover new ones every time, swim underwater through canyons of coral and be amazed at the wonderful patterns of light reflected in the sea, dance myself silly for hours till I’ll flop on the floor exhausted, walk barefoot for a whole week and laugh again till my jaws hurt and my belly is sore!

I want to find magic again in simple things, I really want to live the simple life again and feel good all day just because I saw the most amazing dawn or sunset or just because a baby smiled at me in the street. I don’t want my life to be a repeat of today and yesterday and the day before and carry on drearily overwhelmed by depressing people, news, stifling routines, talks of redundancy, the pain of losing loved ones, the separation from friends.

I really want to believe in the power of love and hugs, in kindness, justice, compassion, forgiveness, wild flights of fancy, letting my imagination fly high like a kite and never taking no for an answer.

So………here goes, I’m resigning from adulthood and if you should try and stop me, you won’t catch me as I’ll be long gone and riding my shiny new Harley on Route 66 with no helmet, wind in my hair, the sun beating down on my back and a big grin on my face!
