Tuesday Challenge April 25 2017: Accomplishment - Go Kart Racing

When I checked the steering wheel on the cars, it was down low so made it easy for me not to have to use my shoulder/arm in driving. I can't believe I did this but it was fun and exciting and I was really proud of myself for deciding to try!

Journaling reads:

"I wasn’t signed to drive at Stephen’s Go-Kart party since I was still in pain and barely real-driving after shoulder surgery. But, when I saw the car set-up I decided to try with my family’s encouragement and the assurance I could pull aside if overwhelmed. As everyone started racing and weaving in and out, I carefully and S - L - O - W - L - Y pressed my pedal to drive around the course. I deliberately stayed to the right and carefully putt-putt traveled along to the cheers and waves of my family. My first race I drove 5 laps and the second 6, not even caring that the winner made 12! But, I started to tear as I first pushed the pedal and started to move thinking, “This is the first thing in two+ years that my shoulder didn’t stop me from doing”. That in itself was MY prize. :)"

For this layout I used:

TCS SS DLO Templates - Storyteller

SNU Vroom Collection Mini

SNU SS Styles Shadow Me
