Running down hill

Life is sometimes like running down hill. You get going pretty fast, not thinking things through, not considering the speed that might build up and that you might land badly at the bottom.  So, you start down. It feels exhilarating.  You're smiling. Things are going well. It's fun.  You get going faster and faster. Your legs can barely keep up. You land in a heap.  Ow.  
When we're kids, we climb the hill again, having learned about the hill and our legs and our mind that we forgot to use the first time, then go about it differently. This time we lie down and roll, laughing the whole way to the bottom. 
Let's not forget to do as adults that thing that came naturally to us as kids.
