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
it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey; the animal was old, and the
well needed to be covered up anyway.  He invited all his neighbors to come
over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into
the well.  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 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
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 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 upward!

Remember the five 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.

By the way, the donkey kicked THE SHIT out of the bastard that tried to
bury him.

Moral: When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get you.
