“Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it….” – Lets Fall In Love

I love this song originally by Cole Porter, sung by Ella Fitzgerald.  When I was younger I used to giggle over the “do it” part, thinking they were implying sex, not the whole falling in love part.  Now as an adult, I still giggle at the “do it” part.  With all the doing it going on, what about when we are doing it?  We all know the many other phrases associated with “doing it,” but let’s call it what it is – sex.  The good, bad, and the ugly – sex.  We all have sat through sex ed in school, rolled a condom on a banana as practice, and felt somewhat embarrassed by the terms used.  In real life how often are we running around looking for a dental dam?  The reality is, sex happens, and for the most part we are smart about talking to our partners about protection, past partners, STDs, pregnancy and the like.  What about those other times?  We take risks thinking we are invincible, and we won’t be part of another statistic.  This goes for all ages too.  A lot of the times, there is an association of irresponsibility with teenagers, but adults can be just as guilty.

Clear Thinking

It’s a beautiful morning here on the East coast.  Dreams are blooming like the plant life outside.  What are you inspired to accomplish today?  I learned over the last 24 hours that life tends to shift right before our eyes and we have to take the time to think about what is before us and where it will lead us.

Sometimes we have to deal with the hard stuff, transitions, and playing in the dirt to realize we will come out on the other side happy, clean, content and satisfied.  Sometimes that has to be enough, even though we over stuff our lives with things, activities and people in an effort to make sense or matter.

Remember that you do matter, you are loved and it will all be okay in the end.
