I’m feeling rather accomplished today.
I drove all the way into the big, scary maze of streets that is downtown today.
All by myself. [This is a big deal]
I did not freak out.
I did not get lost. [even though I had to make several detours from the route I had planned out in detail before I left.]
I found the bus station. [after several trips driving around the same block]
I did not get into a wreck. [though I saw several, which I attribute to drizzle all day making for rainy streets & people not driving with their headlights on-but don’t get me started on that one]
I found a [relatively] inexpensive place to park. [might not have been the closest one, but it was within reasonable walking distance & it did not require parallel parking]
I purchased a ticket. [which did not go how I thought it would]
And made my way back to the church.
I still feel like the country girl dropped into the big city most days. But I gained some confidence today.
