Garbage Free [Forwards]

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. 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.

Movie – In to Wild

Eddie Vedder – Guaranteed

On bended knee is no way to be free

Lifting up an empty cup, I ask silently

All my destinations will accept the one that’s me

So I can breathe…

Circles they grow and they swallow people whole

Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they’ll never know

A mind full of questions, and a teacher in my soul

And so it goes…

Don’t come closer or I’ll have to go

Holding me like gravity are places that pull

If ever there was someone to keep me at home

It would be you…

Everyone I come across, in cages they bought

They think of me and my wandering, but I’m never what they thought

I’ve got my indignation, but I’m pure in all my thoughts

I’m alive…

Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere

Underneath my being is a road that disappeared

Late at night I hear the trees, they’re singing with the dead

Overhead…

Leave it to me as I find a way to be

Consider me a satellite, forever orbiting

I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me

Guaranteed

TGIF and all that jazz

Well its friday, yeah it comes every week but every week is special. After some hard ass work good to see the weekend. Might head to hard rock cafe tonight to get to the send off party of a colleague of mine whose going for further studies. Oh yeah if that does not happen may catch a movie. If not rest my ass and go to sleep early

architectural blasphemy.
its funny how people plan structures and then paint them in colors totally against the color scheme of the surroundings or nature. Or probably thats the idea.
melodrama

Think all movies in the drama genre should be half of what they are now. By the time half the movie is over i am asleep. Oh btw the girl in the movie ‘adventureland’ is hot. Its a comedy drama. Need to watch transformers, hangove (again) and now harry porter 6.

listening to def Leppard after a long time the whole album.:) nice

for those who are thinkin this post is really in coherent thats how my mind works. Chaos in motion

Rains….and associated melodrama

Rains have been delayed, predictions and doomsday prophesies said and told.

Its been raining since last night and as predicted trains started going off since morning. Rains continued since morning nothing new. It rains every july and in the same fashion every year. There is nothing new about it.

Have you noticed that people not related to rains meaning, folks who are least affected by the rains are the first to react to rains. I do not know is it 26/7 aftershock or just useless mongering, but all hell has supposedly broken loose when in fact it did not.

Left for home since my workplace told us to go home early

Don’t change your Stance, no Don’t

We were at this thing and someone says, you should not change your stance, never ever budge, if you are right!.

Well truth is relative, so one man’s truth could be just another person’s lies. In the same way you could be right but then tomorrow or the day after you might be proved wrong, in that case wouldn’t you go ahead an change your stance. May be that is construed on being hypocritical and it does sound that way but is not the right thing to do.

You might be so sure that you are right. But there could be someone else who puts in a point that is either better than yours or plain truth (again relative). Sometimes you could be right but there might be another argument that is also the truth in which case you can give in, well this depends on your side

I say be like like the grass, move with the wind. Do not do as the crowd tells you to do, do what is right. Listen to your heart. You might be right, but if your heart tells you the other person or goal is better than yours back off.

Something tells me i totally messed up this post. I wanted to say something, I am not sure this is being conveyed correctly but what the heck.

45 most important things to remember in life…[Forwards]

Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio.

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.

It is the most-requested column I’ve ever written.".

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save! it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ”In five years, will this matter?"

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative – dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up

44. Yield.

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

Ice Age 3 – Dawn of the Dinosaurs [Review]

I knew this would be a great movie. So this is biased. Am anyway a fan of the series and its ice age, Sid, Manny, Diego. All the ingredients to make an awesome movie.

And yes, the movie kicks ass right from the word go. Not sure where do i start cause its that great.

Well we had gone to watch this 3D but it was houseful so had to watch it in 2D and the loss of one dimension did not dim anything. Yes its a children’s movie but who cares. It is fun.

Sid the Sloth steals the show really from the word go. Am sure if they make a series on Sid, it would be a best seller as well

Diego, Manny always dependable on the laughs with Diego provides some really butt kicking action sequences.

Hate to be a spoiler so you have to watch this on your own, its a stupendous movie just like the earlier series so just go catch it in 3D if you can.

Online 24×7

Last few weeks after some lul my twitter and facebook page saw a lot of activity. Lots of status updates. Lots of what am i doing now answers. Then i got a forward and thought.

Grew up without a phone. We did not need it. It was almost un affordable. We were what you call offline. But then we still knew what was happening around. News got through. Some of my friends are still completely offline and it works for them.

Anyways back to the point which is am planning to slow down a little, guess there are many things offline to do as there are online. Twitter will see less of me. So will face book. I deleted my orkut ac cuz it was just duplication.
