Avalon: You two are gonna keep doing things as usual.
Booth: Sometimes you gotta settle for second best.
Avalon: By the way, my cards tell me this all works out eventually.
Booth: Oh. Really?
Bones: What works out eventually?
This is a quote from one of my favorite TV shows, and has been for a very long time. The chemistry between the actors is awesome, as well as the humor, sarcasm, ect.
Avalon is one of Angela’s friends and also a psychic.
As a woman, we are taught to believe,
most of our adult life NEVER to ‘’settle’’
for second best….
Perhaps it is a feminist mindset from way back when?
Then, we go through our lives not settling, and missing the boat, I think at times and wondering why we cannot get to where we want to go, or have what we want.
When I was watching this the other day, I knew that I was going to write about it, sorry that I cannot find the actual clip,
but it is Bones - Season 5 Ep 1 - Harbingers in a Fountain.
One of the ending clips.
I believe this statement from Avalon, as it is, I think, the open door to what we really want,
if other things are lined up the right way as well.
I believe the door to what we really want and getting it, is mostly
And having the right support around you.
Settling for the next best situation is something I have had to do in my familial situation or expect to have to do when the timing is right.
We are brought up to believe that ‘’settling’’ is almost like a sin.
I do not think this way at all….
Going with the flow, especially when we don’t get our way, and being grateful more than anything for what we do have, is the precursor to getting what we want,
and it’s not a sin.
Settling for second best,
CAN be a good thing, along with our intuition as well!
If it doesn’t agree with what our intuition says, for sure close that door or relationship, or career move, etc.
