Here’s a little fact about me: I am 35 years old and I don’t drive. *Gasp* You heard me right. I’ve never even had a driver’s license.
About 6 months ago, I received my first permit but even then I haven’t driven much. I have this weirdly irrational fear of driving that is really hard for me to overcome. That is until recently.
Last week, I just felt it was time to get started on really learning to drive. So I have been. This week, I decided I needed to come “home” to my hometown where I grew up and spend some time with my best friends who have all been proactive in helping me learn to drive.
And you know what? I am doing it! I really am.
I don’t know why I have felt afraid to do this for so long. Yes, there are dangers and it’s always a risk but it’s something I’ve been needing to do. I need the independence and I need to be able to take my kids places, just me and them. I’m well on my way to making that happen and I know they are so proud of their Momma. Seriously, I thought they’d be driving before I would!
So this is what I am up to right now. Learning to drive about 20 years later than a normal person. Better late than never though!
