Slow and steady wins the race: Mindful Doodles #102

Mindful Doodles #102:

Mindful of speed and safety.

Well I think it’s funny! A four wheeler can go as slow as a tortoise. One morning, my girl and I were heading out for school and work in a cab. The driver was cautious and drove at a steady, slow pace. I felt like I was riding a tortoise, or turtle, or terrapin. It was that slow.

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:
Slow and safe wins the race.
