Shake off the dirt from life

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously
for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided
the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just
wasn't worth it to save the donkey.

He invited all his neighbours to come over. 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.
He was astonished at what he saw. 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.

As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the donkey,
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"!

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 up. 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 the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred and Forgive!
2. Free your mind from worries, Most never happen!
