After the dust settles

DEFINITION

Return to normalcy. Review a project or situation after it has ended. ‘Dust’ urges a picture of a great upheaval, creating dust, and the hope is that when the situation has returned to normal, you can re-start living again.

“When the dust settles over my divorce, I can consider where I will move.”
