Well I started my Steem journey always drooling about the impossibility of ever becoming a dolphin and that's why it's come to me as a massive accomplishment. The truth is that 5000 SP in under 1.8 years to me is what I never think I'll ever accomplish and my people I started Steem together here have either left because of the dwindling steem price or definitely lost hope on Steem. I definitely want to remind people that steem is not dead, it's only rehabilitating and recuperating and will come back huge and strongly only if you take time to build with steem I only believe the futuristic gains will be More than bountiful in my honest opinion and that's why I've toiled effortlessly to achieve this massive milestone.
You would hardly believe I started the year with just 2600 SP and I was watching my dear friend @raj808 who was building, powering up, and he became someone I wanted to become, he was the kind of dolphin I wanted to become by all means and even when I knew it May never happen, I accepted the challenge, Said "thank you" to him and began the road to dolphinhood.
Truth is there are so many uncertainty to Steem and that's why so many people are not willing to build or trust Steem but the truth is, steem gave me everything I have today and no matter the doom and gloom that steem Inc are carrying with their 50/50 stuff and how they'll reduce curation on reward to kill the bit bots bad users, this things hardly reduces my believe on steem or the fact that I believe that steem has a brilliant future. @nathanmars the most influential person in my steem journey use to say that "steem will surpass Bitcoin and all we need to do is to build, believe in it's long-term sustainability and dividends Will be reaped by all means" Having benefited immensely from steem, by default I have attached so much importance to Steem that most times I overlook it's imperfections especially to it's blockchain. So I've emotional loved Steem by default and sometimes I look at how @exyle loves steem and it Spurs me on to love steem, because like it or not, the man is my role model when it comes to investing on steem.
Forgive me, but it's one of my most happiest day ever and I came to Steem a clueless fool not knowing anything about Steem, it's blockchain or anything about Cryptocurrency and it's been exactly one year seven months and look where we are now.
It's definitely not easy being on steem these days and the curve is now shifting towards More capitalism and less communalism which means gains and rewards are now Paramount that's why in the long term those with stake will benefit more. (I don't want this though).
So I won't continue rambling without obviously saying a big thank you to @dtube, @busy @eateem @oracle-d @curie @wafrica @Palnet and a whole lot of others mostly dapps.
Friends are Paramount on Steem and believe me without them you are nobody, so even I want to beg for permission to spam people with my tags because once in this moment I want then to know they've been instrumental to my Steem journey and without you guys I'm obviously nobody.

I'll like to say you guys are the best and I'm definitely celebrating today because you'll definitely possible, truth I hope to be an orca in maybe three years time, it's basically a huge dream which seems insurmountable but the aspect of Steem that keeps me dreaming is the fact that steem is the future and it's only natural to herald the Future from today, going all Steem without fear once again I'm a dolphin and I can't Still believe it.
