Three-Day Quotes Challenge – Day Three


Welcome to Day Three of my Quote Challenge! I want to sincerely thank the prolific, creative and talented Lizardin Bain (Unoriginal Love Notes) for nominating me for the quote challenge. Please do check out her blog!!


  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  3. Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  4. Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

For the Quote Challenge, I have opted to choose lyrics from songs that have been particularly meaningful to me. My third quote is from a song, Breathe, by Anna Nalick. I have already used a different quote from this song in a previous blog:

“And I feel like I’m naked in front of a crowd

Cause these words are my diary screaming out loud

And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to.”

It doesn’t happen all that often to me, but every once in a while, something someone has written literally takes my breath away and leaves me pondering for days. This song did that to me: I love every single word. Every time I hear it, I feel like she really ‘gets’ me. In this case, I have yearned to write since I was about 10 years old, maybe even earlier than that. And I know that until I write the words that leave me feeling ‘naked (and vulnerable) in front of a crowd, that my own very personal purpose for being on this earth will not have been quite accomplished. It takes a lot of courage to write like that… I have witnessed that courage a few times with my fellow bloggers. I know that I, myself, am not quite ‘there’ yet. Ah, well, aren’t we all just a work in progress?

I am nominating three bloggers who remind me, every time they write, how beautiful raw courage is… As I said previously, this is really just a nod to some bloggers I find breathtaking. I sincerely hope you check them out. To these nominees, by all means, feel free to take a pass – no hard feelings

  2. (SPO_OKY) * sorry – you were too perfect for this and I could not help myself…just say thanks and ‘no thanks’…xo

I write what I feel. And I rarely know exactly what I feel until I write. I have lived long enough to have known many joys and many sorrows. I have made many mistakes; I have forgiven myself for a few… I have learned that there are lessons in every step of this journey, if we only take the time to pay attention… I hope you will feel free to pick and choose the stories that resonate for you…

  1. Thank you, Patti. Of course I’m not going to follow the rules and participate properly (haha), but because I really do appreciate your nomination, I’m going to do three days in one.

    Tomorrow though…I’m shattered tonight xx

    1. I forgot to come back tomorrow! I’m sorry.

      1. From a poem, Mad Girl’s Love Song by Sylvia Plath. “I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
      I lift my lids and all is born again.
      (I think I made you up inside my head.)”
      Song lyrics are by far my favourite types of quotes, after Plaths poetry, and because of that I’m struggling to think of the best ones, if only cos they mean nothing out of context. However…this line from the song Running by Naughty Boy feat. Beyonce, reminds me of my eldest daughter, who was living in New Zealand at the time and when I hear her whispering “I’m missing you” I tear up…everytime! Lol.
      2. “And nothing else matters now, you’re not here. So where are you?
      I’ve been callin’ you. I’m missin’ you”

      3. Another song lyric and another story behind it. My good friend Rob, had just broken up with his girlfriend. He was, quite frankly, broken hearted, and I was talking to him about it one day when he told me about hearing this line from Snow Patrol’s If There’s A Rocket, Tie Me To It… “I found a hair the length of yours on my sleeve…”. He was crying and I’d never felt so sad for someone going through a breakup before. Good news is that they eventually (years later) got back together and married almost 2 years ago.

      Not really quotes but here’s one more….

      Better late than never. 😊

      1. Thank you SO much for doing this!!! No apologies necessary, either!!! I checked out the Sylvia Plath poem: very intense… And I sure can relate to the ‘I’m missing you’ quote. I am far from both my kids now and only rarely see them. I miss them terribly and do not see the day where I will see either of them regularly… Glad your friend’s break-up story had a happy ending…
