thought for today

Law of the Garbage Truck
> One day I hopped in a taxi and we 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 on his 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. And I mean,
> he 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 that many people are like garbage trucks.
> They run around through life, 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.
> Don’t take it personally.

> Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. 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.
> Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

> Have a blessed, garbage-free day!
