The other day I had the pleasure of riding on public transportation. There were many individuals aboard this automobile. In particular there was a coffee-skinned middle-aged lady fiddling with something in her hands. As I looked closer she was taping together a torn bill. The process took a few minutes, but after a few minutes the lady was successful. After the passenger finished repairing the torn bill, the roll of tape was completely used up. So this passenger opened the window, and threw the roll of tape out of it. After this passenger threw the roll of tape out the window, the roll of tape did not hit the ground as she expected, but instead hit a car.

In life, how many times do we have bad days where from out of nowhere, somebody else's trash ruins our perfectly good day? In life this may be your partner, spouse, friend, family member, or even a stranger. Here are three tips you can use to not let someone else's ‘trash' ruin your day.

#1- Don't stop the car to analyze the trash. If you are having a good day, don't let something small stop you dead in your tracks. Keep using the momentum you have built up to keep having a pleasant day.
#2-Beware of open windows. When talking with others, be mindful of what windows of opportunity you give others to ‘rain on your parade.' If a person seems to be in a not so positive mood, you can be caring without allowing yourself to turn into their personal trash bin.

#3-Learn to laugh about life's ambiguity. If something strange happens, especially if no one is hurt, learn to laugh at life. It is scientifically proven that laughter has positive benefits for our body and mind. Don't allow a sweet orange to become a sour lemon.

I never saw the reaction of the car that had a roll of tape bounced off of it. Then again, I never stopped to look.
