Life is ten percent what you make it...

Dr Bharti Kashyap
'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 backed 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. 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 is called :
'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 upset your self, or take it on other people at work, or home. 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. And, love 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.'
Keep smiling...

बहुत ही प्रेरणादायी लगा आपका अनुभव। वैसे मैडम आप लगातार क्यों नहीं लिखतीं हैं। क्या आप इंडिया में नहीं रहती हैं आजकल?

बहुत पते की बात कही है आपने। लेकिन आधुनिकता के इस दौड़ में ऎसी स‌ोच रखने वाले लोग बहुत कम है। यदि स‌भी व्यक्ति एक दूसरे के स‌ाथ इतनी ही नम्रता का व्यवहार रखें तो मानसिक अशांति नाम की कोई चीज इस दुनिया में रहेगी ही नहीं।
