When you get in your own way…

We all do it. We get in our own way when it comes to various things in life. When we want to learn something, meeting new people, trying new things. It happens almost every day. 

I have been getting in my own way for a long time and finally decided to step aside. This last weekend I was house sitting for a friend and in order for me to stay there and be able to get to work and home I had to learn to drive a stick shift. There was no way around it because I don’t have my own vehicle right now. My friend was kind enough to take me out and show me the ropes. We had one night of driving and then I was on my own. The nice thing about the vehicle, was that it was pretty simple to learn on. I had the car for four days. I have to say I am pretty proud of myself. Still not so sure about hills with a stick shift, but everything else was just fine. I don’t know why I didn’t get out of my own way along time ago. It feels good to overcome a mild fear and know that I can still accomplish things that can seem so frightening and sometimes impossible.
