Easy instructions on how to use the Ten Mindful Emojis: • Mindful emojis are always put at the beginning of the text message, not the end. • Mindful emojis are a powerful thinking software for the brain. For example, the looking glass mindful emoji “BE FORENSIC” is a software algorithm for the deliberate use of forensic thinking. • Mindful emojis can be sent to yourself, to others or to groups.
American thinker, Mark Twain, said, “Kindness is a language the blind can see and the deaf can hear”. Of course, just because the generous emoji is a bag of cash doesn’t mean it has to be cash. It’s symbolic. It can be time. An attentive ten minute visit with a friend. It can be energy. A thoughtful good deed or a chosen kind word. Share the good things, pass them on. Offer kindness first. Maybe even twice. But, no need to be a sucker.
NOTE: When you SMS or text, you can put the magnifying glass emoji at the beginning of your message to show that you are deliberately being forensic. This deliberateness is important and is called 'being mindful' or metacognition.
