My mum sent me this article on one of the social platforms, she had me read this aloud to her hearing not because she hasn’t read it, but because she wanted to make sure I read it and made meaning out of it, I read it out while she listened, I needed no Councillor or interpreter to make me understand, it was clear and concise, it touched my very soul, it beat my imagination, though it could  be a fiction I loved it and I enjoy  getting the best out of every thing motivating and Inspiring, so I thought within myself  “If a donkey could resist defeat, I am far more better and smarter than that donkey”, and from that moment I got a whole new perspective towards life.

Stand on your problems, when darkness and challenges hit your back and hits you hard in the head, you should shake it off and stand taller. Read the article below and speak life to your self. 

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 God. “Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections🐴🐴🐴🐴🐴. Have a nice day!
