There are thousands upon thousands of books, articles, and countless other kinds of information which tell us how to deal with the hardships of life.
Sometimes, it is the simple thoughts and / or stories that will remind us the most of the important things in life that we can use to remember.
Thus is the reason for today’s short story.
Is your life hard? Are you struggling with some difficult situations right now? Hopefully, today’s little tale will help you make your life a little easier.
A farmer had a dog who used to sit by the roadside waiting for vehicles to come around. As soon as one came he would run down the road, barking and trying to overtake it. One day a neighbor asked the farmer “Do you think your dog is ever going to catch a car?” The farmer replied, “That is not what bothers me. What bothers me is what he would do if he ever caught one.”
Many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing meaningless goals.
Life is hard by the yard,
but by the inch,
it’s a cinch.
