Today is May 8th, and welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and I’m happy you are here with me today. today happens to be World Donkey Day, a day dedicated to appreciating these often overlooked but incredibly hardworking animals. As we observe World Donkey Day, we turn our attention to a rather famous, talking donkey from the world of animation—Donkey from “Shrek.”

His wit and boundless enthusiasm bring much joy and a few lessons. Today, we reflect on one of his notable lines:

Donkey once said…

“I’m making waffles!”

At first glance, this may just seem like a quirky and humorous declaration of Donkey’s breakfast plans.

However, it’s a glimpse into his optimistic and proactive character. Donkey doesn’t just wait around for things to happen; he takes action, making the best out of every situation, no matter how dire.

His mention of making waffles in a stranger’s house illustrates his ability to feel at home anywhere and bring a little light-heartedness to even the most stressful moments. On this World Donkey Day, let’s channel our inner Donkey from “Shrek”— no matter where we are or what we’re dealing with, we can always make ‘waffles’.

It’s about making the most of what we have and bringing joy, not only to ourselves but also to those around us. Thank you for tuning in to The Daily Quote. May you find your own way to make ‘waffles’ today, bringing a touch of warmth and delight wherever you go.
