I really like this post! About two years ago I drove 8 hours to Memphis for a long weekend stay by myself. It was totally out of my comfort zone but gave me so much confidence and many new brain paths as well, just as you describe. When I got back home I realized that I knew Memphis better than some of the areas of the city I've lived in for seven years because *I* drove and paid attention. This is a good reminder that I should do it again soon.

Thanks so much, Katie.

So glad to hear that you "get" what I was writing about!

Turned out that the trip to St. Louis gave me just the confidence I needed when later in the year, due to a family emergency, I had no choice but to fly to FL, rent a car, drive 2 hours to my destination & drive around the city for 5 days.

Then just last week came my supreme challenge! Drive over 500 miles by myself to New York City, and commute 50 miles back & forth daily into the city everyday for 11 days. Including in the rain, at night & in fog.

Amazing how everything gets easier when you just keep at it.

I know it's nothing for lots of people--but it was big for me.

What a confidence booster & I owe it all to "Stretching in St. Louis".
