Well, I’m not afraid anymore, but it’s not something I look forward to starting particularly. Driving has so many privileges and I want to get out and go places and my urge to do that has become so strong lately, but I wonder how limited I’ll be by gas prices. Not having the freedom to drive around and exploring somewhere new often takes away a big incentive for me. Though I’ve just about had it with the buses and how time consuming it is. It will be nice to get school easily and having more freedom, even if it’s not as much as I want.
I’m not looking forward to traffic and dealing with jerky drivers (and to some extent I’m afraid of accidents and things out of my control), but I guess I’m ready to start moving forward with this goal. But I’m going to be sure to be kind, sensitive and patient with myself as I take this major step forward and slowly expand my comfort zone.
