Mindful Doodles #53: The young man had previously sat on the same sofa as the older man. He removed his wrist watch and placed it on the sofa. After leaving his seat, he forgot to take his wristwatch. He realized this and returned to look for it. When he saw the older man sitting in his former seat, he politely asked the old man to stand up to allow him to take his watch.
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 where you place your belongings.
