Do you ever notice how kids between the ages of 4 and 9 seem to not have a sence of fear. And then the older one gets, this once aluring fearlessnes is replaced by a fear of almost everything. Now, I don't know if it is exactally fear, but more of common sence. Youth and adults know that jumping from the side of the pool and landing on your stomach hurts like crap, and don''t do it. Kids know that it will hurt, but think that if they do it enough times it will eventually stop hurting. I guess my point is, I wish I was more like a kid in this aspect and not an adult. I don't want to be fearful, I want to be fearless.
