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 by Washington Irving:
Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it!!!!
