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 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 . 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 neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal , 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 steppingstone. 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 - Forgive .

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happens .

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have .

4. Give more .

5. Expect less from people but more from yourself .

You have two choices... smile and close this page ,
or pass this along to someone else to share the lesson
