Just wanted to post, I've still got test nerve which I hate, wanted this done already, alotta crazy negative thoughts too , centering around if I dont pass. Brett was right when he posted about me being uninspired and I'm trying to find my zone.

I have honestly had thoughts of quitting trucking and going back to the banking and mortgage gig I was in. I was turning over 60k a year with Benny's and not worrimying from month to month if I can pay rent, if I dont make this attempt, per Oregon test standards I would have to wait another 28 days and pay another 160, do the math.

I am getting tired and I have frankly gotten to a point where I dont even want to see the inside of a commercial vehicle again if I dont pass.

There I got myself out, I am fully expecting to be ripped apart (online) let the roast commence I guess.

Thanks for letting me vent

I assume you're up for the diving & skills test?

What is it that gets your nerves? Maybe

This iT!!

Rather than watch your life pass before your eyes, remember that you've done all this already. It's all the same except for your passenger. And this is your opportunity to show off.

So what's new? Also, on the road test, you are just taking a passenger home and they'll give you directions.

Hundreds of new drivers do this every day across the US. Consider yourself one of them.

And we're all rooting for you, Moe.

No worries! Focus, remember your training, use your head, and take it slow.

Thank you all. Interestingly today the church preacher preached on Leading with courage. A key element of this focused on Joshua and his leadership of thebosraelites after Moses (the original Moe not me) died a key element of this was to not quit and not look back on Egypt where they came from.

I have been doing alot of that the last couple of days looking back on 2 years ago when times were supposedly "better" ( in my mind) I was and have been looking at all of this from the dollar cost and lost economic cost. I think i have really missed the bigger lesson, life is not all about money.

Money is important but what is more important is the journey and finding our way, often with great struggle. The truth is my needs are met , I have food, I have money to last and resources I can count on at each step of this journey.

I'm re dedicating myself to seeing this through to the end, getting my CDL , even if I fail, I wont stop. Even if i need to use up ly fifth try and maybe approach this a different way.

Thank you for the positive encouragement.

Yall have changed man, I see it. I used to dread posting here at times , sometimes the posts and replies were what I saw as elitist , maybe I dont know. But it's not the same old same old I have been used to.

Thank you all, the winds of change are blowing on this forum, maybe just maybe we can be the spark that ignites some much needed change in our industry.

I am going to chill now and do what I love play some games and relax, I have a big day tommorrow.

Thanks again
