The Missing Goat

It all started one lazy Sunday afternoon in a small town near Toronto in Canada.

Two school-going friends had a crazy idea.

They rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted the numbers 1, 2 and 4 on their sides.

That night they let the goats loose inside their school building.

The next morning, when the authorities entered the school, they could smell something was wrong.

They soon saw goat droppings on the stairs and near the entrance and realized that some goats had entered the building.

A search was immediately launched and very soon, the three goats were found.

But the authorities were worried, where was goat No. 3?

They spent the rest of the day looking for goat No.3.

The school declared classes off for the students for the rest of the day. The teachers, helpers, guards, canteen staff and cleaners were all busy looking for the goat No. 3, which, of course, was never found. Simply because it did not exist.

Those among us who inspite of having a good life are always feeling a “lack of fulfilment”
are actually looking for the elusive, missing, non-existent Goat No.3.

Whatever the area of complaints or dissatisfaction in relationships, work, finance, achievements, etc…. An absence of something is always larger than the presence of many other things.

Let’s stop worrying about goat No.3 and enjoy the life. Life would be so much happier
without the worries….😊

Don’t let the non-existent imaginary goat No. 3 waste your time and happiness.

Enjoy life with what you have and who you are.
