Shake off trouble get up and step up

 One day a farmer’s donkey fell into the well. As you can imagine it set up a terrible din at the bottom 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 trying to save the donkey. He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to fill in the well. The donkey realising what was happening cried horribly. The cries soon ceased and the filling of the well continued with haste. Imagine everyone’s total surprise when the donkey’s head appeared over the top of the well.

You see as they had thrown in soil the donkey had shaken it off his back and taken a step up until he reached the top. He had shaken and stepped himself from the dark pit to freedom.

Life is going to shovel all kinds of dirt on you .The trick of getting out of the well was to shake it off and step up. Remember shake off your troubles and use them to take a step up in life. We can get out of the deepest pit by not giving up. Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember five simple rules to be happy: / free your heart from hatred.2/ free youth mind from worries, 3/ Live simply, 4/ Give more, 5/ expect less.
