Based on more than a few blogs I have read lately, it seems plenty of us are feeling a little overwhelmed, having pity parties, feeling unwanted, feeling unloved, etc...

Well, I just got this in my regular email and thought I'd share it. Seems like something I need to think about more...



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? That guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'

That 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. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

I have seen this one over the years a few times in my inbox. It is kind of cool but somebody else posted it on here not too long ago.

What did I ever do to you to deserve that?

I keep thinking that this one is actually attributable to somebody. Perhaps a religious figure like Billy Graham, Norman Vincent Peale or somebody like that.

Since when were they anti-sex

You must have been on your hiatus when this was discovered...those that had the most kudos were having the least amount of sex.

Don't you worry, Skwirly, there are plenty of folk around here that will be more than happy to continue spewing their garbage and eventually things will erupt again. Let's just hope we can postpone the inevitable.
