InspirEmail No 322 - January 2018 - The Law of the Garbage Truck
Inspirational messages to refresh the spirit and boost the emotional bank account'

The 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 centre metres!

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, 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 such as frustration, anger and disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you.

So 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 and happy 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 and pray for the ones who don't.

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it, so have a blessed and garbage-free day.
