Better Late Than Never {Thoughts From Me}

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!
