'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

Updated on February 22, 2013

You can never go wrong if you stay positive!

(I will use a substitude name).

One day Lisa hopped into a taxi in order to go to the airport.

They were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of the taxi that Lisa was in.

The taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, but missed the car by a couple of inches.

The driver in the black car whipped his head around and started yelling at us in the taxi. The taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.

Lisa had asked, "Why did you just do that? That guy almost ruined your taxi and sent us to the hospital!"

Lisa said this is when she had learned a lesson that she named, "The Law of the Garbage Truck."

The taxi driver explained that 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 jump it and sometimes they will dump it on you.

Do not take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.

Do not take their garbage and spread it onto 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 is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so...........

'Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the one's who don't."

Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it!
