The Law of the Garbage Truck!!!   2 comments

One day, I hopped into a taxi and took off for the airport . We were driving in the right lane when suddenly,  a black car, jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed the brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!

The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. I mean, was really friendly.
So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!”
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,
‘The Law of the Garbage Truck

He explained,
“Many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage,
full of frustration, full of anger,
and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place
to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
NEVER take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well,
and move on with the routine life.
” Don’t take their garbage and spread
it to other people at work,
at home or on the streets

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so……
‘Love the people who treat you right..
Pray for the ones who don’t.’

A very rightly said quote:
Life is 10% what you make and 90% how you take!!!!
