One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried 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. 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 and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something awesome. 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!
And toys They
Make so much noise
Occupy your focus
Like some dam hocus pocus
Take your attention
You owe mind to my mention
Of how time is spent
Wasted away indifferent
Take your energy
Your inner Chi
And create a Clear vision
With definite decision
Throw it to the Universe
To travel through its transverse
Patience is a virtue
Learn to wait and see how true
It’s as simple as a fact
So it must be correctly backed
Must be in mutual satisfaction
When your being is in correlation
Master of your Own life’s creation

Tonight I graduated from the Everest College Massage Therapy program. Yea!! Not only did I complete the program, but I did the very best. Having achieved the highest GPA in the entire program I am the Valedictorian. Which is exactly what I said I would accomplish when I enrolled one year ago. I was also honored with the Lamplighter award which mean that I, "by integrity of character does 'lead the way' for all students by demonstrating outstanding leadership". Being honored with it was a total shock though. It feels great to do great. More than anything else I learned is that Belief in Myself is key to success. I knew it in theory, now I know it in practice. I am positive that I can do anything I believe I can do. And I am seriously excited about all the things I'm going to do now.
To express how I feel, I made my longest crisacrostic yet...
