I always dreamt of owning a car and driving. However, the household financial condition never sort of allowed it. I used to be fascinated by the idea of driving, and used to eagerly observe people driving to be able to learn.
I have a cousin who is quite young compared to me, since they had a car in the family, she learnt to drive very early in time. I used to have both feelings of pride on her combined with disappoints about self.
Few days back, approx. 15 years later, I had a burning desire to own my car and drive. With all the intensity I put in this desire of mine, the Universe conspired to fulfil it for me and I bought a car of my choice, without having to compromise on things I wanted in my car.
Right on Day 1 of driving, I won over the fear, which I had carried inside me for years. Not only did I drive well, but, was able to handle difficult on-road situations confidently too. Trust me, it was equally a surprise for me too.
Exactly today, 6 days of driving and I gathered the confidence to drive my son to a venue 30 kms far for an exam.
This win was of ‘belief over fear’.
What did this experience teach me?
Accomplishments and failures are what we create in our minds and continue to develop a faith in ourselves based on past life / experiences.
There is another important learning from this experience, which I will share in another blog.
Thank you Universe for the new ME.
Thank you all for your love, time and attention.
