Mindful Doodles #95:
A young woman is upset because her personal stock of her favorite drink, a brand of orange juice, is finished. She has no more packets of her O.J. drink to comfort her. Now that her stock is depleted, she is sad because her dependency will not be satisfied. She has difficulty weaning off that drink.
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 that you might develop dependency on a particular drink. You may crave for the sensation of some particular food additives or natural substances in her favorite brand of orange juice.
