Isn't it interesting how those who call themselves 'mindful' are often the least mindful human beings you ever meet.
I'm currently volunteering at a homestay in Jamaica where "mindfulness is set as the foundation in our everyday life"
It is supposed to play an important role in our everyday tasks according to the owners. See something which isn't correct? Fix it. Keep your eyes open and your mind as well.
Sounds great doesn't it.
In reality it seems like this kind of behaviour is only expected from us volunteers. For some weird reason we are cleaning up the mess the owners leave behind. Doesn't seem very mindful to me.
But it's OK. I'll close the gate if its left open. I'll do the dishes if you won't. I'll even stay friendly no matter how little interest you have in me. I'll always give it my all.
You could say they don't deserve it. That I should just sit back and relax, don't take my work or relationship with them seriously.
But then I wouldn't stay true to myself. I don't want to adjust my behaviour to shortcomings of others.
I've been in many similar situations before and I won't allow myself to be less than 100% me. Even if that means repeatedly getting hurt by those who didn't deserve a second of your time.
"Mindfulness: the psychological process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, which one can develop through the practice of meditation and through other training."
It sounds beautiful. Let's all try it, shall we? ❤️

- Pizza Class at @difarapizzanyc Brooklyn! Best $65 I ever spent! Before the class begins, you get to sample a slice of their three specialty pies- the square pie, regular pie, and white pie. Then you learn how to make your own with their friendly, funny, and sweet experts! Soft drinks and cannolis are served and it’s also BYOB! We had so much fun! Even if you just want the pizza, the class is worth it as opposed to waiting on line for hours 😂 such a great time had by all ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #lirestaurantgroup 🍸
