A driver's license picture I did not dread taking.

Monday, November 19, 2012

My license picture back in 2007 scared me. I knew pictures didn't lie, and everyone always complains about their picture-so I decided to wear black to look thinner. That would work, right? And some makeup, and a big smile--that would help the picture be okay--or so I thought.

After I'd been handed the license(side story-it was my first, I didn't learn to drive until then, but again another story)-I was in shock. That COULDN'T have been me. My face wasn't that wide, my eyes weren't that sunken in....where had I gone?

Finally I got my license renewed today-and this time I wasn't horrified by the picture. I was able to smile at the journey of the past 5 years-my accident, surgery, weight loss journey-and see that I had made another step toward full recovery. I have the license to get back on the road and shake the fear from my soul.
