Mindful Doodles #59:
I saw this woman on a bus. She was sitting nicely, until she reached her destination and pressed the bell to alight. She stood up and discovered her long scarf was caught in the wedge of the seat. She pulled and pulled, to free her scarf. Fortunately, it dislodged and no other incident happened. The bus driver saw her incident and waited at the stop for her to free her scarf.
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 wearing long and loose clothing which may get caught in mechanisms or hardware.
