The article “The Farmer’s Donkey” relates to me because when I have a problem I work through it. When I have a very difficult time working through it I ask for or find help so that I can face my problem and conquer it just like the donkey in “The Farmer’s Donkey.” I completely agree with this article because “When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade” you do not just sit there and suffer. The donkey did not just sit there and suffer. He shook off the dirt that people tossed his way and overcame his problem. When you are tossed a problem go in to with a positive attitude and come out with a smile on your face because you have just grown a little bit stronger.
My plan of action is to take my own words of advice and not get stressed out when a problem is tossed my way. Instead I will go into the dirt with a positive attitude and come out of the problem with a smile on my face. I have just grown a little bit stronger. I will also encourage others to just remember to stay positive. Every bit of dirt that gets tossed your way gets put there because you can accomplish.
