Day two into the New Year. It's been quite a day.

My car, my beloved car, is having transmission problems and will be traded in for a new/newer car in the next few days. It saddens me. Yes, getting a new car is exciting, but this car has some meaning for me.

This was my first, brand new car. But I loved it for another reason. In 2002 I had a terrible car accident. Besides the physical injuries, my spirit was hurt. I was terrified of driving and swore I would never do it again. Facing your worst fear and immortality will do that to you. It's terrifying and shook me to my core.

But I lived in Los Angeles. How could I not drive. After weeks of being driven around by friends and relatives, I finally realized that I had to face my fear. And I got behind the wheel of my first new car. The car isn't anything fancy, but I felt safe, so that made it priceless to me. I pictured myself driving that thing for 20 years, never once being ashamed of how old it was. But, it wasn't meant to be.

I said this would be a year of changes and two days in, it's true. I'll update on what car I end up purchasing.

For now, some inspiration...
