...two ninety three.

Living Garbage Free

Recently I hopped in a Taxi and we took off for the Airport. We were
driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car pulled 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.
 He said, "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 stress-free people do not let Garbage Trucks
take over their day.

Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
so Love on 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.

Have a garbage-free day!!

~the Internet

so i found this story yesterday.
and i saved it for today.
initially, after spending time in my
mice eaten garden,
i was going to whine.
about the fact.
that my beautiful garden.
is a shell of it's former self.
after typing this story out.
i am going to be grateful.
that this garden was.
i am going to be grateful.
that i captured it's former beauty.
i am going to be grateful.
that with love and patience.
it will be a new kind of beautiful.
i can be grateful.
or i can be angry over something i could not control.
guess what i choose.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday afternoon.
just BE.
