Thought for the Day

I have a bazillion ideas for posts, but I do not have the time or energy to post them just quite yet. I am leaving for my 1st of 4 beach trips on Wednesday, so who knows when I will get to posting them. For now though, I have a thought that is inspiring me today. It comes from a conversation between two of my favorite fictional characters:

Booth: Is my faith shaken? Yeah, it is.
Brennan: It is?
Booth: I’ll go home tonight, and I’ll lie in bed. I’ll toss and I’ll turn, and I’ll beat myself up. I’ll question everything.
Brennan: Will you get your faith back?
Booth: Always have in the past.
Brennan: So you have faith that you will retain your faith. Why?
Booth: Because, Bones. The sun’ll come up; tomorrow’s a new day.
Brennan: I know that feeling.
Booth: Really? You know what it feels like to get your faith back?
Brennan: When I see effects, and I’m unable to discern the cause, my faith in reason and consequences is shaken.
Booth: Then what happens?
Brennan: Two plus two equals four. I put sugar in my coffee and it tastes sweet. The sun comes up because the world turns. These things are beautiful to me. There are mysteries I will never understand, but everywhere I look, I see proof that for every effect, there is a corresponding cause…even if I can’t see it. I find that reassuring.
Booth: Life is good again.
Brennan: Life is very good.

It's always good to know that even when life is changing and you are adjusting and dealing with what you want from it, or even when you have a bad day or week or month, the sun does always come up; you do go about doing things you love...spending time with friends, writing, exercising, reading...and you find that each day is a day to start over and make a change or adjust your way of thinking. I like that even though you may have been some way your whole life or even part of your life, each day is a chance to begin anew again. We can constantly reinvent ourselves. And for that I am grateful.
