A few months ago, four to be exact, I had to muster up some serious courage to do something that terrified me. For those who know me well, I don’t make decisions very easily. I labor over the tiniest thing, so much so that I am no longer allowed to choose restaurants when my family gathers. That being aside, this was a bit more serious. So I made myself a little book to help me handle the situation. The power of art never ceases to empower me.
This is a double-flag flag book. A book that can be experienced through traditional paging, but has a lovely surprise opening for those not familiar with the structure. One of my favorite moments during this otherwise challenging time was watching the joy in my mother’s eyes when the book just “opened” into its flags of glory.
Whenever I need courage, and I do right now, I look at this book. You can see it right here.
Watch it a few times, let the words sink in. You are brave, you can let go, just trust. We all can do it.
