Hi Folks,


Firstly, I must mention that Jo at Moodscape, one of my favourite bloggers has seen fit to present me with another blogging award - it was totally unexpected and I would offer her my gratitude and thanks.. . Hugs to you Jo . I must now check around and present the award to seven others so I will post the names in a couple of days.


~~~ The Garbage Truck Pledge ~~~

This next bit explains the story of the Garbage Truck which was something that David J. Pollay came up with. One of my blogging friends (Jo at Moodscape) told the story of it recently in her blog and I am retelling it today - Enjoy !

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? 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. ~Copyright 2007 David J. Pollay Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so... Love the people who treat you right. Be kind to the ones who don't....

Simple message eh? a bit more difficult to do mind you - but the funny thing is, once you accept the message it seems to get easier ...
