Britni Pepper at Medium quoted me in her story about her secret mantra that she uses to bring her calm and bliss. I wrote my story, “My Mantra is Love,” in response to a Sherry McQuinn writing prompt about her recent mantra, “I Can’t Catch a Break” during these trying times. Before I read Britni’s story, I read P.G. Barrett’s story about his mantra, “Write Something Seems to be the Only Mantra Working for me These Days.“
I will have to take a look to see what other people have written in response to Sherri’s writing prompt.
When I was reading Britni’s story, I was happy to she that she had quoted me. It is like seeing my name in a byline on Medium or my blog. It still brings joy after all these years of when I felt the joy of seeing my name in my high school’s student newspaper.
Here’s the quote that Britni shared in her story and that made me smile seeing it again:
When I think of love, it makes me think of the warmth from the sun or the feeling I get taking a walk before the sun goes down and there is a refreshing breeze. — Chris Hedges“My Mantra is a Secret,” Britni Pepper
I’ll repeat my mantra here: Love to all of you and thanks for reading!
