Mindful Doodles #108:
If you see an abundance of space to sit, do you grab the opportunity
The woman in shorts works as a waitress bussing tables in a coffee house. She is fierce. She told off an older man, for sitting in her space. Se was in-charge of collecting orders of beverages. No one gets to sit down at her space, if they don’t buy something to eat or drink, in the coffeehouse. There is no free seat. The man got her message and walked to the counter to place an order for a cup of coffee.
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 boundaries and space. Sometimes, we can’t grab the opportunity to use space that belongs to someone else.
