I went out on my second driving lesson this morning. I did 100% better this time my driving instructor told me. I was really driving well and I felt excited to be behind the wheel that I was able to drive in the driver’s seat. I liked the guy that was teaching me how to drive. I try not to judge myself. I can learn how to drive and be older. I say to myself “Esha you’ll be fine don’t judge yourself because you’re thirty nine years old now.” The adult road is age twenty one years old and over.

The independence of driving and saving up for my own vehicle is something I am actually going to be able to do by early next year. I am excited. I also will try to get a road test package from the driving school I am using. I’ll get three or four more two hour lessons from the driving school and then go online to schedule a road test by early October 2020.
