Ever since I started drawing I've learned a lot more than just drawing techniques. I wanted to learn how to draw for quite some time but I just kept brushing it off. Early last year I asked myself how I can continue wishing I could draw and then not anything about it. So I picked up my pencil and I started to draw a portrait of myself and boy must I admit it was awful but I will never throw that drawing away. It's a reminder that if you want to go somewhere you have to start with a single step.
This has taught me an important life lesson : if there's anything you want, you have to go out and get it. I've mentioned a couple of times that there were times when I have felt discouraged because the end product was not exactly what I envisioned but I've learned that looking back at how far I've come always helps. No matter how far I still have to go seeing how far I've come always encourages me to keep going.
By taking the first step I have also found something that I really enjoy doing. I could spend hours drawing and I never thought I would find something else that I love as much as reading and writing but everyday I fall more in love with drawing. It's so therapeutic and never fails to fill me with joy. I hope you can all find the thing that makes you happy. Don't forget that it starts with a single step and no matter how slowly you may be going just make sure you're moving. One day you'll realise what a big difference little steps can make.
