Mindful Doodles #118:
This is an aerial view of a red bus on the road. The bus driver made a mistake when he turned into a wrong road. He then made a U-turn, to get back on the right road. It was a sharp U-turn. This mistake could have been due to
(1) He was new on the job, or new to this route.
(2) He was not mindful and committed a simple error.
Some passengers in the bus laughed because they knew the bus route well enough to recognize that the driver made a blunder. I was glad that the bus made it safely past the U-turn. It was possible because of the lack of traffic from behind.
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 at work.
