Guess who passed his driving test?
I'm sorry if I kept anyone waiting for news, but I decided to spend some quality time with the wife smiling at each other and holding hands.
I did pass my driving test on Friday, and it was a great feeling of accomplishment.
It's all go from here. Upwards and onwards, more forwards please!
I've been thinking since then that after a couple of years of turmoil, and my recent decision to just take control of circumstances and make a way forward for my family, I am actually getting somewhere. The feeling of overcoming the odds is a beautiful feeling.
I have dreamt of making it just one step up the ladder of life and I have made it. It might look like a little step, but in the scheme of things, it's huge. It's picking me up of the floor after being knocked down and saying, "If that's your best shot, I'm still standing".
