‘Love the people who treat you right..Pray for the ones who don’t’

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 breaks, 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,

‘Love the people who treat you right..Pray for the ones who don’t.
