Once a little boy slowly walked in to his mother’s room. His mother was sitting at her desk writing. Mother took a glance at him and saw that he was carrying a vase that was given to her by grandmother.
Seeing that vase in that little boy’s hand and mother got worried and said, “Baby, please put that vase down before you break it by mistake.”
Boy replied, “Mom, i can’t get my hand out of it..”
Mother now left her work and looked at him and said, “Of course dear, you can put it down.”
“I know mom but i still can’t get my hand out of this vase.”, replied little boy.
Mother got down on her knees and looked at his hand, see saw that the neck of vase was very narrow and little boy hand is neatly fit inside that vase up to his wrist.
Seeing this mother got little worried about him and called out for his father.
Little boy’s dad came and looked at all this. Father gently hold little boy’s hand and tried to pull his arm out of that vase but still couldn’t get it out.
Now he tried it to loosen his hand using soap water but still nothing. After it he tried to loosen his hand using some oil around the wrist but hand still didn’t budge.
After trying everything father said, “I give up… I would give a dollar right now to know how to get his hand out of this vase..”
Boy exclaimed, “Really.!! Dad??”
Just then parent heard a clinking sound and saw kid hand slipped right out of vase. Parent were relieved and surprised to see that.
They turned vase upside down to check reason for sound and found a penny dropped out of it. Parents were confused and asked, “Son what’s this??”
Little boy innocently replied, “Oh that.. It’s a penny that i put inside it but when i tried to get it out my hand got stuck but when i heard that you would give a dollar to have my hand out of that vase, I let it go..”
In our Life, there many time when we keep Clinging to things that keep Us stuck. We should Learn to Let go so that We can move forward in Life.
