"Take my first steps down" Hi, what's the meaning of "take my first steps down" in the following text? "So when the phone rang and I was offered an opportunity to join the European Astronaut Corps, there was what can only be described as a wild mix of emotions - elation, excitement, shock and trepidation, due to an overwhelming realization that I was about to take my first steps down one of life's major forks in the road."

Es una manera para decir estás haciendo algo nuevo en tu vida. Cuando estás haciendo algo nuevo, es un nuevo camino, o una nueva dirección, algo así. Entonces, puedes decir estás tomando los primeros pasos (the first steps down) en tu nueva dirección de tu vida. It's a way to say this is the beginning of something new in your life. When you try something new, you can think of it as a new "path" or a new "direction" you are taking in your life. So, they're saying you're taking the "first steps down" this new path/road/direction in your life.
