(16.1) Courage: The View Up There


Get ready for a week of courage!

Courage is the ability to do something despite it frightening you, and if you look at it there are so many types of courage people face every day from physical courage, social courage, the courage to be your authentic self, intellectual courage, and so much more. So to really scope out all that courage has to offer I decided to make a comic for every day this week.

Yes, this took an insane amount of time.

But it was worth it, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. So for the meantime enjoy them, and I hope they inspire you or at least hit you right in the feel good!

Physical courage is a more obvious one. It deals with physical things you’re scared of. A couple of things that terrify me are insects, the ocean, and a major one is heights.

This comic was inspired from the time I vacationed in the Philippines. After this long winding hike, there was this observation deck with the steepest ladder. Nothing about that ladder screamed safety to me. But I knew up there was a sight I would probably never get the chance to experience again, so I pushed through.

I was terrified, my heart was beating, and I had a death grip on those railings. At one point my legs refused to go up any further. Like I knew I was afraid of heights before this, but at that moment it reinforced how scared of heights I actually was.

But if I didn’t reach the top I knew I would regret it, and I’m so glad I overcame that fear because that reward was far greater than any fear I had. The view was truly beautiful.

Well, that’s all for today, see you tomorrow!
