Mindful Doodles #127:
The bride-to-be asked her close friend to help her draw up the list for her wedding guests. This bride was all nervous and giggling. Her girl friend was calm and methodically eliminated all who did not merit a seat in the wedding banquet.
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:
On one hand, it takes deliberation to choose people to attend your wedding feast. On the other hand, the people who are left out should not take offence. Look on the bright side – they don’t have to spend money buying gifts.
