YOur blogs were needed and necessary. YOu need to get that stuff off your chest or you will go CRAZY.

This is a great way to try not to be so mean to others. I'm mean lots of times! Any of you who have pulled in front of me on the highway or cut me off or drove 10 miles under the speed limit should know how mean I am! lol

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

considering my reason blog posts, I think I need to remember this, and try not to dump my garbage on anyone who really doesn't deserve it!

I must have chanted at least 25 times today "no garbage, no garbage". I still let a little in but it wasn't as bad as usual! Woo hoo for me! lol

thank you for sharing this. I know I fall victim to this kind of thing all the time. I allow someone else's garbage to ruin my spirit and bring me down. It's hard but I'm learning to see people in a different way and not let them control how I feel.

Forever saved by His grace.

Oh, Donna---what a lesson to live by! I've seen this via email before and have even used it for devotions at school! But it's great to see it again. Thanks for sharing.

I found this from another group and wanted to share it with you. I know I am guilty of spreading garbage and this is a great lesson for an attitude change:

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 car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, 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. Forgive the ones who don't."

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a nice day!
