Law of the Garbage Truck

Got this story in an email from my dad and thought it was fitting for this morning…..

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 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.
