"to speak one's mind by telling all one's heart"
The sentiment that's on this page
was inspired by something I read ages ago. Apparently the original English definition of Cour-age in the Middle Ages was just that. I don't know if that's literally true, but it doesn't matter - the concept has stayed with me through all those years. I've dabbled artistically with it before, but it hasn't started coming together until now. One of my Courageous goals for this year is to bring this idea into a physical art piece, perhaps a mixed-media canvas, to offer for sale. This is part of my umbrella goal of bringing more original art pieces into my Zibbet store.
This has been so inspiring, I made another page spread on the idea of Courage. The sentiments are more personal to me, but to anyone who's been on a similar journey, I think they're self-explanatory, And if they're not - well, that's my secret ;) Here's my second page Courageous page spread:

One last thing: After doing these pages I've been using "courage" as a mantra to get me going again during those everyday times when I feel stuck. It's working!
