Mindful Doodles #73:
Patience is a virtue. I usually have to get in line in a long queue to buy cooked food. This stall holder is a strict, no nonsense type of man. He maintains a straight face because he does not want to be seen as soft. He would be taken advantage of. Many straddlers hang loose around the area, waiting for free food. He has to be firm or else he would be out of pocket and close his shop.
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 using patience when you have to wait in line.
