Leap of Faith

Made some new art:

This girl has pink hair, which in it is written:
with your eyes closed
just take that leap of faith

Sometimes you just need to take that leap of faith. Just leap into never never land, leap into it. Why worry? Why be so afraid?
As far as I’m concerned, life keeps going. It keeps moving, and if you stay stuck, you end up stuck forever in this zone of depression.
Eventually something is going to force you to get out of it. Life keeps going, and you can’t just sit in a pool of depression forever. Well, maybe you can. But I can’t. I can’t do that.
Life is short, and when you realize how amazing it is, there’s no stopping you.
If there’s one thing I am afraid to explain to my daughters is how many assholes there are in the world.
There are so many. If I don’t tell her, life will.
Taking a leap of faith means investing in me, in who I am; believing in myself. I can do this. I know I can.
All you need is a leap of faith.
To me, faith is a lot like flying. Have you ever had dreams of flight, or that you are flying? I have. To me, faith is kind of the same way. It’s like flying. At first, life pushes you out of your comfort zone, and you have no idea what the fuck you’re going to do. You start flapping like crazy. Plumeting. Dropping. Crying. Scared. Keep flapping those wings, baby. You see what’s going on? You’re flying now. You may not be able to compete with the owls from Legends of Ga’hoole, but you’re flying nonetheless. Be proud of yourself. Be proud of this moment. You’re flying, baby.
Faith. Have it. Embrace it. No, it is not scientific. Not at all. It’s not about numbers. It’s about closing your eyes, and jumping out of that comfort zone, and into the rest of your life.
Just close your eyes and fly.
Flight is like freedom. To me, having faith is a sort of freedom. I can have faith, and as long as I have faith AND hands at work, I know that things will get better. I know life will evolve for me, not just change. Change is fine but evolution is amazing. Evolution brings that positive change, that amazing WOW moment that you never thought you were worthy of because all you’ve ever been is criticized and put down.
You are worth more than diamonds, my dear. 
You truly are. And if you’re at the point that I am-flapping your wings like crazy, wondering how the heck you can fly on your own-know that you can totally do this. Just close your eyes and fly.

the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” 

-Jack Kerouac
