five simple rules to be happy~

another excellent story i got from facebook that i want to put up here as a reminder for me 

and people that i love if 

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
