People are like Garbage Trucks

Just want to share with you this motivational video watched from Youtube.

The Garbage Truck Story

One day, I hopped into 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 the 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. 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, "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. NEVER take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on with the routine life." 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.'

* As very rightly said quote:- Life is 10% what you make and 90% how you take!

The Hardest Things



a.. Admitting you were wrong after you have been so insistent that you were right

b.. Swallowing your pride when it has become TOO HARD and TOO BIG to even gulp it down with water

c.. Being the LAST TO KNOW about something that CONCERNS you most of all

d.. Realizing that you have been TRICKED after you have given your WHOLE TRUST

e.. Realizing that you have taken the most IMPORTANT thing for granted

f.. PARTING with someone you've just LEARNED to LOVE

g.. Letting GO of someone you've LOVED ALL YOUR LIFE

h.. Losing someone you care deeply about

i.. Bracing yourself for the worst kind of pain... & still hurting so much.

j.. Loving someone too much and learning to love the pain that goes with it... that even if you learned to let go of the person... you still go on missing the pain
you once felt (and there it goes... you fall again)

k.. Denying to yourself that you're falling... then finally you realize that indeed you have fallen when it's too damn late and you cant get out

l.. Being with someone else when the right one comes along (oooh its sad to belong...) awwwww this really hurts.....

m.. Knowing deep inside that you love someone yet you can't say it out loud


"Take chances, make mistakes. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave."
