The law of the garbage truck

Recently I noticed people are too tense, maybe because its the beginning of summer? They get upset and create tension out of thin air! It reminded me of the law of the garbage truck;

“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 look for a place to dump it. And if you let them, they’ll dump it on you. So when someone wants to dump on you, don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Believe me. You’ll be happier.”

_David J. Pollay

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 or feeling bad. It’s not your responsibility to make people feel good about themselves.

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

As very rightly said, “Life is 10% what you make and 90% how you take!”
