March Slice of Life – Day 13

Today is Day 13 of the March Slice of Life, the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.

Today is Friday the 13th. For some, it  is a day to dread. Superstitions abound. I remember as a kid not wanting to step on a crack or I’d break my mother’s back, I still don’t like to go under ladders.

There are those who embrace the day. In Ontario, every Friday the 13th is a day where thousands of motorcyclists descend on the small town of Port Dover. It has become a beloved tradition.

People talk about bad luck, good luck, as if a day or a number can make a difference in an event. I still catch myself knocking on wood after making certain statements.

That got me thinking of the statements that have been touchstones for me, that I return to for support. Over the years I have filled six or seven small books with quotes, many that I have gotten here. Many of the quotes become a mantra to get through tough times.

Here are some of those which I have created a journal page or card for, to highlight them.

  1. I have never been a quote collector, but one that stays with me is from Brene Brown, “Maybe stories are just data with a soul.” That’s why I try to write.
