Mindful Doodles #98:
This young lady loves to crack open fortune cookies. While fun to read the inscriptions of fortunes, these should not be taken seriously. The bakery who made these cookies and stuffed the papers with predictions, can not be foretelling the fortunes of thousands of cookie eaters by using their templates of a fixed number of “fortune sayings”.
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 what you can believe in.
