I will teach her that driving is a complete privilege.
I will teach her that she has been given the chance to become an adult & to make sure that she embraces that with pride.
I will teach her to be mindful of everything and everyone around her.
I will teach her to be safe.
I will teach her that with choices come consequences.
I will teach her that it is not just about driving but also about being aware of your surroundings.
And then I will teach her how to drive.
Yes, professional driving lessons will be happening with an instructor but I believe that I need to get her mentally prepared to be a citizen on the road. I don't want to just say, "here's your licence now off you go." I want to know that she has got this. I want her to be confidant that she can do this. I want her to be ready.
I will not think of her as a little girl but as a woman. I still don't know if I am ready for this but I don't have a choice. It's time. I have to adjust to these huge life changes that are happening. It scares the absolute shit out of me but I just have to hang on tight & enjoy the ride!
From Jos with love. xx
