“Wherever you are, be there totally.”
What is mindfulness? To me, it’s accepting the current situation you’re in even as you’re aspiring to get out of if it’s negative.
I look at it much like the first step to conquering an addiction: Admitting you’re an addict.
It’s only after then that you can start on the road to recovery. I think that principle applies to any negative situation in life.
You have to recognize and acknowledge where you are.
It’s important to stress, however, that I’m not advocating pessimism. I’m simply condoning being practical and realistic about how long it will take you to get out of the dilemma.
Once you embrace the basic idea of mindfulness, the path of expectations becomes much more clear.
