My Driving Journey - Lesson 7 & 8

WOWWWW! I can't believe I've had 8 driving lessons so far.
To be honest, I thought I'd never actually get the courage to learn to drive at all.
But here I am proving myself wrong & actually enjoying it!

I am going to use this quote & say that one of the best things in life is driving. The confidence you build from being able to drive, the freedom you get once you've passed, it just opens up the world to you. So I think I have waited long enough for the right time to learn, I'm fighting my way through the anxiety & the thoughts that come with it, believing in myself that I can do it & I'm not letting go of the fact of I can gain more freedom & a full pink licence.
Friday 19th & Saturday 20th July
During both of these lessons we did the exact same route both times, I have now started driving from home meaning that I drive all of the lesson. It's sooo exciting! So now we have moved into the next town. The town I have my highest anxiety levels in & the place I was dreading driving most. But unfortunately this place also happens to be where the test centre is. So I don't really have much say in the matter. Admittedly once we actually got driving there I was absolutely fine, a little rise in anxiety every now & then but I just went with it & stuck it out. Which is exactly what you have to do with anxiety, prove who is boss. We drove through the town too, experiencing traffic lights & introducing a few hill starts. I can honestly say I'm loving driving lessons. I'm not saying the build up to the lessons are easy because to be honest they sometimes aren't. On Thursday I also had my therapy session but my anxiety levels had been so high I was tempted to cancel that aswell as my driving lesson. I didn't cancel either, because that would be easy & can be easily done again. So I'm battling through & trying my very best not to cancel either.
Are you learning to drive too?

  1. you're amazing. END OF x

  2. Though driving means additional freedom, you shouldn't forget that with it comes responsibility and discipline as well. Once you're on the road, you can't just go on freely; you have to stay focused and keep in mind the safety of others. Good luck on your journey, Anna!
