Mindful Doodles #117:
One day, a very young girl, who was maybe below two years old, went to a McDonald’s restaurant, with her parents. They stood in the queue to order. There were other customers in the queue. The little girl strayed a short distance from her parents. She was confused and went to a different man, and called him Papa. She was very short and could not tilt her head way up to see the face of the owner of the pair of legs. The stranger said to her, “I’m not your Papa.” Her parents and the stranger laughed it off.
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:
Take care of your young ones.
