I can do it, I did it

Friday, September 07, 2012

I had procrastinated the idea of seeing a new set of doctors for so long, I thought I will not do it but I did it.

I was with the endocrinologist yesterday and it was great moment for me. He was such an optimistic being and I was so relaxed and overwhelmed, I was happy really happy with myself for doing that for me.

It was however a good start for me as I enter into the last quarter of the year 2012. My mindset for this last months of the year became quite large and I feel like achieving so much with the much time I still have left in the this year.

I decided to review French classes and see how far I can go with that. I stopped the classes after writing an international examination which I passed then in 2005 (with high grades), I just became lazy and right now I have forgotten virtually everything I learned in French except very few basic words. I know learning another language is best when you speak it often (I did not). So next week God's willing I will be at Alliance Francaise to inquire more of how, when and the which of starting afresh or reviewing in order to move forward. I will do it


On another level, I need to perfect my driving, take a driving test and apply for my driver's license. I started learning how to drive some years back but I stopped because for whatever reason I became too timid to do it (then I was using my daddy's car). Now I know I can do it and I will do it, I am really ready for it now (I have not told DH though) and nothing is stopping me, I am more confident of myself and I know I can. I have informed a friend who has promised to take me through the basics before I go to the driving school (I am saving some dough). I know I am in for it this time and every wall standing before me will be crushed, if I cannot crush it I will surely walk around it but I AM MOVING FORWARD.

    I am so happy for you T! Glad to hear you had a nice experience with the new doc. Makes a huge difference.

    My mom didn't get her license until her mid 30s. I believe my grandpa never wanted to teach her back then, as he didn't want to give her the independence and my grandma didn't drive either. We had buses when we lived in the city, but then moved away and she decided to take the leap and take lessons. Well, she did it on her own! It was incredibly empowering for her. You can do it babe!!!

    You are doing great my friend!
    You take good care of your health,
    and with the French and driving classes you keep your mind active, just as your body.

    You are so calm, confident and energised, and I just know you are going to smash through those challenges and meet your goals in whatever you do!

    I would love to be there with you! I studied French at school and loved it. Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to holiday on New Caledonia, a French island near Australia - and I loved having to talk French every day for everything - I had forgotten lots, but also realised that it's still in there somewhere! I hope you can save up and go somewhere like that with your French studies!

    I would also love to be there with you to help you with your driving lessons. I taught my two children to drive, and it is so joyful to see their freedom as they drive off in their cars!

    We live in Australia, so I can't be there for you - know that I am sending you heaps of positive energy, and if you ever want to holiday in Australia, look me up!

    Those are 2 great goals!

    My minor is in French and I worked there a year right after uni (this is like 20 years ago). I don't live in an area where it's spoken, so I've lost "everything" as you can imagine!

    I took five years of French and just like you, I didn't use it regularly and I lost almost everything I knew! I am glad you are doing so many things to improve yourself as a person. Good for you!
