What is MINDFULNESS? According to Psychology Today Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. … Instead of letting your life pass you by, without any thought of the current here and now, mindfulness means living in the moment …
I tend to interpret Mindfulness as being the here and now and everything about the present moment. It follows then that a person would tend to be ever vigilant – always being alert and watchful, to avoid danger, and to be prepared for potential catastrophes at all times. If you are always mindful and in the present perhaps you would notice the little things that if left unnoticed, might become catastrophe if overlooked. Now that may sound just a bit negative but I think it falls right in between being overly pessimistic and overly optimistic. It’s a nice comfortable place in the middle – often referred to as BALANCE. The more difficult moments you avoid in your present, the more comfortable your overall existence may be moving forward.
