You know you’ve made progress when…

You know you’ve made progress when…

When people are amazed to see you doing something that has become commonplace for you, you know you’ve come a long way. The astounded looks on the faces of acquaintances when they see me drive by would be comical except it’s so true. It IS amazing that I conquered my fear of driving, paid any fines, was stable enough to have a legal car including safety check, registration, and insurance. A valid license. Any one of these things is amazing for someone once on the streets of Honolulu. Now, I drive by police cars with confidence, knowing that even if I made a mistake, I am legally covered. It feels so good not to have any secrets to conceal from authorities. I had forgotten what it was like to have the privileges that come from doing what’s right, even when it’s expensive and there are more fun ways to spend the money. I like this. I have come a long way indeed.

    • My car is insured. Although I did meet someone who said he knew how to fake records to make it look like you’re insured even when you’re not. My insurance is expensive, I am told it’s bc I font have a driving history. But it’s worth it to me!
