(01/08/'16) an essay from 0-15 ArtBook Magazines (Why I stopped playing Tennis)
Remembering my childhood, how it felt, and how I experienced life, it all feels like a dream now. But the effects from it are still very much real to me. I live it again and again, day after day.
For the most part, I am content with my life. I have a family that I love, a job that I am happy with, everything that can make a man happy. Well, except for one thing, one thing that was bigger than life to me when I was a little boy. One thing made me so happy, one thing made me forget time, and made me finish my homework so fast that I could be with it a little bit more.
I loved it more than anything else in life. It was my first love, Tennis. I was so good at it. I tasted my first success, my first romance, and my first true happiness. It made me feel like a man, made me feel like “SomeOne”, even though I was just a boy.
Slowly, it was taken away from me by the people who did introduce it to me in the first place. My parents.
Who knows, maybe they meant well, maybe they were trying to help me, protect me even. Nevertheless, they took away something that was very special to me; something that I still can define my life with.
I remember them so vividly the way they used to act all around the tennis courts and the way they behaved at clubs. I remember it the way they interacted with other parents and the way they talked to me the front of my friends.
I remember the way they wanted me to win or even act in a certain way, the way they made me feel. The way they did everything when it comes to tennis and competition. I wish that they left me alone to find out for myself what is right and wrong. I wish they did not claim my experiences as their own win or lose. I wish that they had just let me be.
I always wondered whether they ever could see themselves from the outside. Could they ever know how much they damaged my young heart and fragile mind?
They never meant it, I am sure of that, but nevertheless they did what they did. They made me never touch the racket, that I thought I could never live without.
I am trying to forget that part of my life now, that cruel joke. But tennis?
Well... How could I ever forget it knowing what it meant to me?

In our effort to create a magazine for the children of the tennis world, their parents, and mentors, we are building the elements of our vision for all the children of the world.
In order to understand the magic that creates champions, we need to take our focus to the roots of development of healthy human beings, before anything else. Perfection is not an accident, it is the end result of a deep understanding of the sources of human potential, and brilliance. Everything begins with a vision and is fostered with knowledge and experience, hard work and sacrifice.
0-15 is a platform for all children to speak their mind and share their emotions, develop better communication skills, and to make them feel understood.
0-15 will help parents to understand the core of tennis culture and the sport for life. And will focus on health in everything that makes us who we are in our body, in our mind, our culture and in our consciousness.
