Mindful Doodles #49

Be mindful of manners even when a customer buys only one small item from you.

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.

Mindful Thought of the Day:
I appreciate good customer service, who does not discriminate between how much business each customer brings in to the store. Every customer is given their due respect.

Mindful Doodles #50 –
This woman thinks her eye lash detached and got stuck inside her eye. She tries to splash water into her eye to dislodge her eye lash but this method fails. She then forces herself to cry, hoping that when her eyes watered, her lash would be displaced.

Be mindful of eye care.

Mindful Doodle #48

Be mindful that you do your job properly.

The book store’s assistant or salesperson, did not perform a thorough check for the book/ material I asked for. I browsed the shelves of the magazine section and behold! I discovered there was a magazine on Meditation. When I went to the cashier to pay, she was not apologetic that she lied to me about not having any book or magazine on Meditation. She just asked for my payment. She operated on the mode that when something was wrong, just ignore and carry on.

Be mindful of feelings: Mindful Doodles #47

Mindful Doodles #47:
Someone made a salad tray and asked me to try it. He was proud of his work. I declined because I hated salad. On hindsight, I should have accepted a small portion of salad. I probably hurt his feelings.

Be mindful of the efforts of others.

Mindful Thought of the Day:
I wish the young woman could have been considerate and not turned up her nose at that suggestion of a X’mas present. I wish she would be mindful of the limitations of gifts available for sale in the store.

Tight squeeze: Mindful Doodles #43

Be mindful of personal space.

I was at a bus-stop, seated next to an elderly man and his adult daughter. There was a narrow gap between her and myself. Then a father and young daughter pair walked by. The little girl didn’t look a day past 7 years old. She said, “Papa, I want to sit!” Her father pointed to the narrow space and said, “You can sit there.” She squeezes in and the other woman and myself shift in our seats to make some space for her. Then the girl says: “Papa, come and sit with me!”. Her father said, “There’s no space dear.” The father ignored personal space and boundaries to satisfy his daughter’s desire to have a seat. Neither the elderly people nor myself were totally walking away from our seats

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 of another person’s personal space and boundaries.

Mindful Doodles #42

Mindful Doodles #42 shows a pair of lunch mates sharing a conversation about the amount of food they are ordering for lunch. One guy asks the other if he is going to buy additional rice for lunch. His lunchtime pal replies that if he eats so much carbohydrate, he wouldn’t be able to work after lunch.

Be mindful of your food intake.

Mindful Thought of the Day:
Be mindful of your food intake. Don’t stuff yourself to the point of feeling drowsy because all your blood has gone to the digestive system to absorb the digested nutrients. You’ll feel drowsy and dull. Not exactly the state to be doing work.

Mindful Doodles #41

Mindful Doodles #41 is an original comic. A man walks into a supermarket and selects FOUR bouquets of flowers, on Christmas Day 2018. I wondered which of these scenarios best describes his situation:

1) He has not bought X’mas presents and intends to give flowers to four different women.

2) He wants four small bouquets of flowers to decorate 4 rooms in his home, to welcome guests for the festive season.

3) He wants to give all four bunches of flowers to one woman, to overwhelm her so that she’ll cook delicious meals for him.

Which do you think it is?

Be mindful to prepare early for gift giving.

Mindful Thought of the Day:
Prepare for Christmas and other important days of the year. Buy presents in advance. Make use of sales and discounts to shop for desired presents all year round. You don’t need to scramble and settle for quick compensations like buying flowers as gifts. Your receivers will benefit and appreciate your meaningful gifts more than flowers.
