Mindful Doodles #74:
I used to lunch at a particular coffee house with my friend. For the past two months, he has been MIA because he returned to his hometown to attend to urgent family matters. One food seller noticed that my friend was missing and inquired after him. I was surprised and appreciated his concern.
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 of your impact on others. You create such strong impressions so make them worthwhile. Be good to others.
