Sheela was worried and sat silently staring out of the window, she is just 10 year old. Her dad wants to make her understand life and to see her happy.
“What happened?” He asked her.
“I feel sad” She replied in meek voice.
“Okay Lets go somewhere” He pulled her hands affectionately.
While crossing the construction site, They saw the old building being demolished and stones of various size are littered around the place. Her dad got an idea.
“Let’s play a game” He said cheerfully to her.
She looked around the place and questioned in confusion “Do you mean here ? ”
“Yes here only. Can you lift that small stone? ” He asked.
“I guess yes” She went near that and lifted that stone.
“Good. what about that? ” He pointed to the bigger stone than the previous one.
She started to say no but her dad said “Before you say no , look around and see the bigger stones than that. Do you still think you can’t lift that one ?”
This time she was bit confident about it and lifted the stone. She was happy about it, she had done something which she thought she couldn’t do.
Her dad patted her shoulder and said “These stones are like problems you face everyday. You can surely lift it with little extra effort. But your fear blocks your ability and make a false assumption that you can’t do that. Before solving any problem in your life, look around and ask yourself is that really big problem than those huge one’s out there. I won’t give you false assurance, life is never a bed of roses, in the same way it is not full of thrones, I wont ask you what is your problem now, but whatever it is , solution lies inside you, which you need to find, instead of being sad about it”
She nodded understanding the life and added cheerfully “Let’s go home dad. I have some things to work on “. Her dad smiled at her change.
