I heard a funny story about a farmer Jacob, who had a mule named Caesar that fell into an abandoned well fifty feet deep.Jacob really loved this old mule. But when he surveyed his situation, he realized there was no way to rescue old Caesar.
The well was very narrow and Caesar was crammed at the bottom. The mule had not moved or made a sound. Jacob therefore figured that Caesar had died in the fall. As much as it bothered him to give up on the mule, he was a practical farmer. He decided to leave Caesar at the bottom of the well and fill it up with dirt.
Jacob called some friends to help shovel dirt down the well. The first shovel load of dirt woke up Caesar, who'd been knocked out. When the mule felt the next load of dirt hit his back, he realised what was going on. But instead of letting himself be buried, Caesar shook it off.
Every time a load of dirt hit his back, the mule shook it off his body, tossing the dirt to his hooves. Then he'd step out of it.
Caesar kept it up. Shake and step. Shake and step.
After nearly an hour of shovelling dirt, Farmer Jacob and his helpers were stunned to see Caesar's ears appear at the top of the well. He was not dead. They kept shovelling until the old mule stepped out of the well and walked in freedom.
They'd come to bury him, but they raised him instead! When you feel the dirt hit your back, when life treats you unfairly, when you go through disappointments- don't let it bury you. Shake it off and step up.
#That is all.
