Sorry folks, no “Tidbits of Pondering” today from my wife as she was extremely busy. But, I do have a neat story that I think you’ll appreciate and if the principles are applied to your life, it will change your life. It’s called the “Law of the Garbage Truck” and it was promulgated by David Pollay. Find the story below:
The Law of the Garbage Truck
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.’
Life is 10% what you make itAnd 90% how you take it!
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.
Life is ten percent what you make it
and ninety percent how you take it!
