Dedication and Passion :
How to Stop Time
I've always wanted to stop the time because...every year, at my birthday, I start thinking about the past year. And I realize that I'm getting lonely, I'm getting older. I'm losing things that I used to own, I'm loosing self-happiness. The days are changing and so am I. And I can never stop it. Anyway, one day I realized that some things can really make you feel like time stops.
My name is Cristina and I am a volleyball player. I've been playing volleyball for seven years now and even though I've sacrificed all that I have had, I have learnt how to stop time. Yes, this is all about sacrifice. When the volleyball game starts, time stops. You forget what you did that day, you forget about the past, you forget about those around you, you forget about yourself. It's just you and the ball. Only in that moment when you lose control of all that happens around you in this cruel world and your mind is completely free, then and only then you can really feel the moment at the maximum of intensity and you can actually stop time.
However, time will pass anyway, and one cannot do anything about it. But the greatest victory upon life consists of those moments time stops for you. And the thing is that it all depends on you and on how much passion and dedication you do put in those things you really care about in your own life.
