Dare to Dream!!! I did... and it finally came true!!!

I still fell like I'm dreaming... but it's true: I finally got my driver's licence!!!
Yeah!!! I don't know about other countries, but getting a driver's licence in Brazil is waaaaaay too expensive... getting mine costed me more than 2500,00 Brazilian Reais, about 1250 US Dollars. And beside expensive, the learning process is terrible and it's really really hard to pass the exams.
We first have 4 hours a day classes for a whole month... then we have a written exam to check if we know the law. If we pass this one, we are granted permittion to start learning to drive. And we can't learn from our parents, or our oldest brother or sister, or our husband or any other person we trust and like... we have to learn from complete strangers that sometimes are sooooo rough and unkind!!! We don't learn how to drive where we are actually going to drive... we learn it in a very remote place, with almost no traffic at all, usually very very far from our home. After 19 lessons, we are supposedly ready to drive alone, then we have the second exame... driving a car with two examiners inside.
I actually failed this exam once... 15 days ago... I cried for days! But I didn't give up... and today I was finally approved!!!
And because I'm soooooo happy, I have put my Dare to Dream kit on sale for only $1 until Friday!

Grab it now!!! If you are not the giving up kind of girl, like me, I'm sure you'll have some great opportunities to use it to scrap your victory moments!!!


  1. Congratulatons Lisa! I'm very proud of you for not giving up and accomplishing something so difficult! :)

    1. Thank you soooo much, Crystal!!! I knew you girls would love to hear the news!!!

  2. How wonderful!!! We really take it for granted here in America. Congratulations!! =)

    1. Well, I only know what I see on movies and shows... and from what I hear from friends who have been to America... but it seems to me that everyone can easily get a license as soon as they turn 16. Apparently they can even learn how to drive from a parent, a friend... which probably makes things a lot easier.
      I think that this hard, expensive and long process we have here is the reason that sooooo many people are driving out there without a license... which is dangerous for them and for all those ones on their way.
      I can't say that we are really prepared to drive when we finally get our license... we are absolutely not. But at least having a license we can go out with people we trust and learn more from them without fearing being caught by the police :D

    2. Congrats on getting your license!! From the way you explain it, it is a major accomplishment!!!!


Thanks for leaving your love...
