Garbage In – Garbage Out

Law of the Garbage Truck

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.
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 ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a blessed, garbage-free day!

Mature Women Seeking Employment

Yesterday was spent with 2 friends speaking of the rigors of Job Hunting.  Surely, most of you as well have fears of this stressful endeavor.  Unfortunately with maturity, this experience is not as much fun.  Thankfully, I must maintain a sense of humor at all times.  Sometimes to my detriment. 

Remember the Rooster in the Looney Tunes Cartoons*?  His brainy myopic nephew and other characters would on occasion have need to blow up Rooster.  When this happened, he would proclaim in his best southern drawl:  “Fortunately I keep my feathers numbered for just such an emergency!”  Yet, I digress.  Sorry. 

So, today I had an interview for an administrative position.  Beautiful office, great employer, fantastic working environment.  Great Interview!  YES!  As I walked out feeling particularly good,  I passed the next applicant.  Needless to say, the mood left quicker than chocolate at a birthday party.  Ms tall, thin and younger was leaning over the counter schmoozing the front desk person.  A pose worthy of  Playboy’s best, I might add.  Artfully displaying her Firm Assets!  Oh, CRAP!! 

Yeah……, Well……..,  I’m smarter and more skilled than “Ms soon to be a Centerfold.”  Yeah, Yeah, that’s right.  Sure, I could lose some pounds and yet I cannot change my age or even my vertical limitations.  Life can be challenging.  (Actually sucks at Times)

Hi Everyone! 

This is a space for all women that wish to share what is going on in their lives and hopefully gain a confidence and strength that will allow all to move forward in the pursuit of a great life, which is richly deserved. 

 We, as women,  need to share our stories of Joy, give an emotional shoulder to lean on, just complain about that hideous boss or a crazy neighbor.  Perhaps it is the best friend who is there no longer. Maybe it is just the usual pain in the ass that drives you crazy.  As for me, I need the exact same thing.  So many will experience all of these and more.  So, here,  we are to help each other.  Feel free to share your stories on my Blog.

You Are Not Alone!  I am right here with you.
