    Something really really meaningful and apt in every circumstances
    that we may face.
    Read on.....

    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 quietened 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 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 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 up!

    Remember these five simple rules of happiness:
    1. Free your heart from hatred.
    2. Free your mind from worries.
    3. Live simply.
    4. Give more.
    5. Expect less.

    Someone sent this to me to think over; so I am forwarding it to
    you to do the same.

    SHAKE IT OFF!!

    All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night
    in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to
    find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are
    dangerous people, for they dream their dreams with open eyes, and
    make them come true.


    STEP UP 'n' SHAKE IT OFF!!!

    Wonderful! Good advice. This is how we should be, as rightly pointed out. Survival of the fittest. Be optimistic and also opportunist( i mean in a harmless way).
