What you are left with...

Today has been quite busy and I've been rather tired. But in the spirit of blogging every weekday this month, I'm checking in with a quote that has been on my mind lately. The other day, while I was reading Bright Lights, Big City, there was quote that resonated with me so much that I just had to share it with you all.

"...what you are left with is a premonition of the way your life will fade behind you, like a book you have read too quickly, leaving a dwindling trail of images and emotions, until all you can remember is a name." - Jay McInerney

This quote reminds me so much of everything I was going through during 2015. Especially in regards to my divorce. But it also reminds me of all the hope that I experienced that year with the new life I was finding with Alex and all of the amazing things that came along with it. The start of something new, finding my footing, remembering who I was again and letting the past fall behind me without getting caught up in it's netting. Life is a series of events that you can either let soften you or harden you. I choose the former and will continue to, again and again.

I hope you all had a lovely day! As for me, I think I'll be retiring to the bedroom a lot earlier than Alex & I had planned.


  1. Hope you rest well!! You are a strong woman, Danielle!! That quote is not about you, my friend!!
