Once a little stone was stranded on a beach and said to itself: “I want to go back into the ocean!” A grey stone next to the little one said: “I know how you feel. I so wanted to go back for such a long time. But from here you can’t get anywhere” “Why?”, asked the little one. “The only chance would be a storm. So I am waiting for my chance.” “What is, if there will never be a storm?” “I will have to stay.” “But if you really believe that you will get back into the ocean, you will get there. It is only you who can make this decision.” “But how will I get there? I can’t even walk.” “If you really want something from your heart and you believe that this that it is possible, than you will get there.”
In this moment a little girl came along. The little stone called: “Hey little girl, can you throw me back into the sea, please?” The girl turned around, looked at the ground and smiled. Then she picked up the little stone, run a few meters and throw it back into the ocean.
