One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well.


The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out


to do.

Finally he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered


anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve

the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.

They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.

At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.

Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was

astonished at what he saw.

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing




...... He would shake it off and take a step up.


As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal,


would shake it off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over

the edge of the well and trotted off!


Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.

The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step


Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out

of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off

and take a step up!


Remember these simple rules to be happy:


1. Free your heart from hatred.


2. Free your mind from worries.


3. Live simply.


4. Give more.


5. Expect less..





Have a great day!!!!
