‘The scariest moment is always just before you start.’
I didn’t tell anyone for a few days at first because after finally doing it it felt like such a small, irrelevant thing. Nbd. My instructor was the first person I told and after her response I felt proud. I built this site to share my experiences in the hope to help others and I hope sharing my achievement this week will inspire you.
If you’ve been here from the start you probably already know about the very serious MVA I was involved in, December 2016. The journey continues… I’ve tried my absolute best not to let it defeat me.
This week, my other half wasn’t very well so I needed to drop my stepson to school before I headed to work. No problem. I’d done the drop off a couple of times before and knew I could easily avoid the area where I had my accident (it’s very close by!) except this time I lost my bearings. I was heading in the wrong direction. It didn’t take me long to realise where I was and I ended up turning down that road. Yes, that road! The same road I had driven down to turn right out of the night of my accident. The same turn I needed to make to get to work! I wanted to turn around the whole time I was driving down it. I knew I was going to have to make that same exact turn if I didn’t. I was already late for work and didn’t want to be any later than I had said I was going to be, so guess what? I DID IT! I made the turn and it was okay! I was OK!!
