I would also add that building confidence comes from pushing a bit out of our comfort zones. So try to not wait too long to venture out - you might develop a sort of mental atrophy.
Very very true. Sometimes you need a push to get outside of the comfort zone. I recall learning, toodling around in my subdivision at 30 for a while and deciding to go to the store one day. Quiet... no traffic... pull out onto the road... made it to the store (doing 30-35 in a 45). Yay! Time to go back... quiet... pull out... where'd all these cars come from?! Shoot, I need to do the speed limit or at least close! ohgodohgodohgod... hey, I'm... speeding. WHEE!
