Sentranced Saturday: don’t let the hard days win

sentranced (adj.): the state of being captivated by a well-written sentence.

Sentranced Saturday is a weekly meme created here that encourages you to share a quote that left you entranced. It makes you think. Everyone is welcome to participate, please be sure to link to this post so I can see all of your quotes!

“Don’t let the hard days win.” 
― Sarah J. Maas

Full disclosure: I have never read anything by Sarah J. Maas. *clings to her sf/f blogger identification card* But I have to admit that this particular quote has given me pause to consider picking up her work (where would I even begin?!) more than all the hype in my circle of blogging friends, and it was exactly what I needed on a bad day. 

Some days are harder than others and I have taken the stability I have found with the removal of stressors and medication for granted. We all have hard days, and it is important for me to try and not let them consume me completely. Thanks Jess/Teagan @ Fiction No Chaser for giving me a new power quote, and thank you to everyone that offered me kind words.

What do you think about this quote, and what quote do you want to share this week? 

As an exciting note that Danielle @ Books, Vertigo, Tea and Debby @ Always Booking have joined in on the Sentranced Saturday movement! Welcome! In an effort to be as inclusive to non-US time-zones I am moving my posting time for this weekly post to 4 p.m. Pacific Time on Fridays (midnight in England, 7 a.m. Singapore). Everyone is welcome to join in!

    1. Thank you so much Vera, and this is a good vision board quote for sure! I think I am going to print it and put on my cubicle wall at work and maybe on my bathroom mirror. Whole30 is… hahahaha. I fell off the wagon and am slowly bringing myself back. Hope you are doing good!

      1. Life happens and Whole30 is very strict, crossing my fingers for you that it goes well. 🍀 I’m finally seeing a specialist next month to start ruling things out. 😊

  3. Whether you have read her or not, this is a fantastic quote! And one that I needed to see at this moment ❤ It is too easy to feel overwhelmed or beaten at times. We all benefit from those reminders that not to let it consume us.

    Thank you for mentioning and linking to the blog. Love the meme so much!
