The BackBlast:


Woke up to a cold February morning with a temperature of 1 degree and some light snow falling. Drove to the Coliseum with Second City and encountered a few HIMs coming back from their early EC run. I had completed a quick run on the path to Central High School on Saturday, and the lightly plowed, well packed snow seemed to make for fairly ideal running conditions.


Totally forgot to include one, but did convey to the PAX that we would be moving the entire time.

I’m not sure who the original author is, but I came across this the other day and thought it was wise, and also something that would be helpful and easy to share with our 2.0s

It is called “The 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 brakes, skidded, and missed the other car just by 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 ~ 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 disappointments. As the 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, resentments, anger, and frustration; 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!
