This is a big deal. A really, really big deal. I mean, yes, I'm an independent woman in most things, but driving and being in a strange city, well, those just aren't things that I do all alone. I have moved across the country alone more than once. I have flown alone a bazillion times. I've eaten in restaurants alone. I've gone on solo hikes. I've done tons of things alone. But, for some reason, the things I do alone just aren't that scary to me. I mean, I get butterflies when I move to a new place and don't know anyone, and when I eat alone, I wonder if everyone's watching me, but those are fears I can handle.
Driving in general, for me, is the most anxiety filled activity EVER, so to have driven TO the city alone, driven IN the city alone and figured out directions on my own, I feel like the champ of all champs. I am for-serious on top of the world. And, for that I am thankful. I'm thankful that I was forced to challenge myself and I'm thankful that I lived up to the challenge.
(If you didn't read my post on Sunday, I found out on Friday that I had to go to Edmonton for work this week, and because it's in the middle of the week, I had to make the drive ALL BY MYSELF, rather than having Ian act as my chauffeur, as I would have much preferred.)
What are you guys thankful for this week? Have you concurred any of your fears or surprised yourself with how capable you actually are? Tell me about, won't you?
