Have a Garbage Free Day!

I wanted to start writing and expressing my daily activities with my kids, my job and life. And give me a chance to remind myself no matter how hard it is - it's a beautiful day!

Giving credit where credit it due - I totally stole from a friend's Facebook status, but I love it and it is yet another reason to remember it's a beautiful day!

One day I hopped in a taxi and 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? 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 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 10 percent what you make it and 90 percent how you take it!!!

Have a garbage free day and make it a Beautiful Day!
