I’ve spent all day with the fine and fabulous ladies of HolisticMBA, and am ready for bath, book and bed.
I have quite a bit to share from the event, but my brain checked out hours ago. So I leave you with a gift I just received from a perpetual ass in my life. (You know who you are.)
A little church humor:
The Pastor’s Ass
The Pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won!!
The Pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the next race. And it won that race too.
The local paper read: “PASTOR’S ASS OUT FRONT.”
The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the Pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.
The next day the local paper headline read: “BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR’S ASS.”
This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the Pastor to get rid of the donkey.
The Pastor decided to give it to a Nun in a nearby convent.
The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: “NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN!!”
The Bishop fainted ….
He informed the Nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey as soon as possible.
So she sold it to a local farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read: “NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10”.
This was too much for the Bishop so he ordered the Nun to buy back the donkey, and take it to the plains where it could run wild.
The next day the headlines read: “NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.”
The Bishop was buried the next day.
The moral of the story is … being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery,
even shorten your life.
So be yourself and enjoy life. Stop worrying about everyone else’s ass and you’ll be a lot happier and live longer!
And there you have it. From a chain email, no doubt; crappy jokes with a crafty message;)
It is relevant surprisingly, just this morning we were talking about the study of 1000 people on their deathbed: “What’s the one thing you would have done differently?”
The biggest regret: “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
I leave you with this: What would move you closer to living a life more true to yourself? What’s stopping you?
