Be sensitive: Mindful Doodles #86

Mindful Doodles #67:
One morning, I was waiting at a bench outside an office. A man rushed up to take the empty seat next to me. He had an application form for a job. He was dressed for attending an interview. Dressed to the nines in a white, long sleeved shirt and black pants. Even his shoes had the theme of black and white. The front portion of his shoe was white while the heel portion was black. He was wearing a gold band on his left hand. I kept quiet. I didn’t want to jinx his preparation for his big moment. I was mindful to be sensitive.

Be mindful of the sensitivities of others.

Mindful Doodles is a series of comic/ cartoon drawn on assimilating stimuli that comes into my mind. My surrounding and environment are dynamic. As events happen, the stimuli enters my brain and I pay attention to them. I am not mentally disturbed as I pay due respect to each stimulus. I ponder upon how I would deal with the stimulus, to manage the situation. I try to discover what lesson the Universe bestows on me in this encounter. I write my discovery as my Mindful Thought of the Day.

Why be mindful? By paying time and attention to a disturbing stimulus, you deal  with it. It ceases to be new and disruptive to you. You have released anxiety. You have greatly reduced your mental stress.

Mindful Thought of the Day:
Be mindful to be sensitive to the needs of others.
