Some days call for relaxed, laid-back outfits. Like this one that I wore to go driving with my Dad.
I am wearing:
– Black and red striped v-neck shirt from Cotton On
– Black camisole from Target
– Black maxi skirt from Target
– Green smoking slippers from Rubi Shoes
– Pearl ring from Fayebella vintage.
– Gold crucifix (inherited from my Nana)
I’m having a bit of a love affair with fishtail braids at the moment. They’re super-easy to do and they look just a wee bit more interesting than a regular plait. I feel so pretty when I wear my hair like this.
My driving lesson was less than stellar. I made quite a lot of mistakes, in one case veering onto the wrong side of the road. I’m having a lot of trouble controlling my speed when I’m turning, as well as stopping in the right place when I come to an intersection. I always brake way too early and then I have to inch up to the white line.
I felt pretty disappointed that I didn’t do well today. The last few times I’ve been driving with my instructor I’ve done really well. I think I wanted to show Dad how much I’d learned, and it bugged me that I didn’t do as well as I have in the past. I think there are a couple of reasons why I didn’t do as well. Firstly, this was the first time I’ve driven in months, and my skills are rusty. Secondly, I was driving my Nana’s car for the very first time, and it took me a while to get a handle on where everything was in the car and how sensitive the pedals were. Finally, I had just started my period and I was feeling a little bit fuzzy. Oh well, at least I gave it a shot and now Dad and I have a list of things I need to work on .
Never mind, I’ll just keep on smiling and give it another shot sometime soon.
I’ll leave you today with a gorgeous quote that I’m stuck on at the moment:
” Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying “I will try again tomorrow”.
