The Donkey's Attitude
Sometimes when things get difficult it seems almost impossible
To go on; many would just give up, but not everyone.
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried
for hours. As the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, he decided the animal was old, the well needed to be
covered up.Anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbours 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. Few shovel loads
later, the farmer finally looked down the well. And he was astonished at what
With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing
something Amazing. He 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 happily trotted off!
The Moral Lesson:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. . . .
The trick to getting out of the well (of this problem-filled world),
Is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. . .
We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping!
Never give up!
Shake it off & take a step up!
Remember the 5 Simple Rules to be Happy:
1) Free your Heart from Hatred---Forgive
2) Free your Mind from Worries---Most worries never happen
3) Live Simply and Appreciate what you have.
4) Give More and Expect Less.
