Brave - IF


This is posted in response to Illustration Friday. This week's prompt is Brave. I'm conjuring up the bravery to ask for a leave of absence from my job and make a trek to Europe for my first trip Abroad.

Your strong graphic illustration makes the point well. A leap of faith requires a certain amount of bravery.
I hope your wishes are granted.
Also...Thanks for dropping by my blog!

Go for it M!!! Life is so very short. You don't seem the type to say "if only I had done..."

And you have a band of angels that go wherever you go ;)

Sometimes our only transportaion is a leap of faith.
(I wish I could remember whose quote that is.)

Thanks for the comment on my blog by the way.
If you do manage to make the leap and get to Europe look me up. Im in Barcelona and sometimes Copenhagen. It always helps to have contacts when traveling. Good luck.

I thought I left a comment here... Well, I said it´s not necessary be a brave to visit Europe, he, he. Ask me whatever you want to know about Spain and I´ll help you.

Oooh go for it! Europe isn’t scary... though asking for leave may be!
I like the energy you express in this piece!

Wow, this was over a year ago, and I made the trip. 3 months over the span of Autumn. A life altering experience and I'm so happy I took the leap.

Don't hold yourself back - let go and fly!!
