Many ways exists to see these words , it's not my fault . But i will love to ask , what falls into your head when you hear the word "The first step"? , what do you envision ? , when do you take it ? , Why do you take it ? , How do i take it ? . You can only struggle to answer these questions if you don't have the answer to "WHAT IS MY FIRST STEP ?" You , yes you! . You're intrigued right ? you should be , follow me on this miniature adventure , you won't regret it , there is sunight at the end of this dark tunnel , we shall walk through it Together.
What is my first step ?
As each day pass by , we gain more knowledge , experiences , try new things , meet new people , we grow , in general , we go through life . In this process , we realize what we love doing the most , a reason to smile , a reason to wake up early every morning , a reason to live . That thing we call our passion . Be it playing soccer , drawing , dancing , programming , cooking and so much more . Everyone find's this at some point in their life . some feeds the love for it daily , sadly , some get lazy or distracted and abandon it . Geographical location , culture and believes may affect our outlook and exposure , limiting us from finding our passion but that won't ruin anything . "Whatever is meant for you will find you" .
Personally , i fell in love with programming in 2018 , i started because that year all i did all day was play video games on my laptop , and i then wondered and asked myself , "How are video games made" . Laziness and doubt kept me procrastinating , but i could't take it off my mind . I don't know how to express myself very well with words here but all i can say is something inside of me , pushing me to give it a try was stronger than whatever doubt the world can ever offer! . At that very moment , i cancelled whatever other plans i had and went straight to my laptop . Then ,
"I TOOK MY FIRST STEP"

THE DAY THE DREAM BEGAN!
Ever since that day , i have kept loving programming , i don't get tired , it's always getting more interesting each time i do it . I enjoy creating new projects , learning things in the same field as programming , educating and sharing ideas with others . It has inspired my love for every other topic in the same field . They have been lots of ups and downs , tough times lasts but they surely go , lots of progress and successful projects but i wouldn't delve into that here , it's a post for another day 🙂
