The Law of The Garbage Truck

The Law of The Garbage Truck


It is said that some have brains, where as some don’t, but heart beats in all. Even the most obdurate and implacable man has a polished shade casting love to the near ones. This impersonates how indispensable our heart is, not just by physiology but by emotional norms too.

It’s sensitive enough to have imprints engraved on it as fragrances of yesteryears……and WORDS permeating the most of frankincense. Just as an arrow left from the bow never returns, the same way, the words said can never be returned. The crimson red marks of my mother’s fingers shall fade away from my cheeks, but the deep black words said by my colleague will always darken a corner of my heart.

It is the artistry of Nature and the grace of God that we are blessed with both, mind and heart. But amidst all the logics and reasons, emotions often predominate us. Words carry a prodigious level of intensity, having the power to totally demolish somebody or elevate to the peak of encouragement. Hands may or may not break the bones but it’s the tongue, which has the potential to allay or smash one’s heart and feelings.

Often, sour words are spilled out, but then, the understanding between the two shall prevail and compel the listener to understand that just nectarous words are not the mirror of love, but acrid words too are a symbol of concern.

Once a very wise man stated the Law of Garbage Truck, where he explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, of bitter pills, of rage and disappointments. As and when their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump and sometimes, they may dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile and wish them well. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, or home or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their way.

Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right and pray for the ones who don’t. Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it.
