#DrMartinLutherKing said he was tired of the injustice that he and other African Americans were experiencing, that African Americans continue to face. Oh, how we as African Americans and that of America as a country do a disservice by not being mindful to what was, to what it is and to what it could be.
Six years ago, that word ‘mindful’ took hold of me, that I went about to gaining the meaning of the word, there is different ways the word mindful is applied. I come to understand as I applied it to my life, is to own all of me, the good and the bad. This is to my knowing what my triggers are, moreover, understanding my emotions regarding people and that of situations. If I’m aware to my emotions to go about with and around, that if it’s intentional or unintentional, the fact is that I already know how I feel pertaining to…. It would then be better to take into thought to be in control of my emotions regarding who or that. It will be unnecessary to react to what it is you already aware of granted you entitled to what you feel however it would be pointless to continue to have the same reaction to that in which you feel emotional about our subject to have emotional reaction to This quote speaks to how I apply mindfulness to my life: “Be mindful of yourself as you relate to other people and in doing so you become mindful of others. Thereby, you say a lot of less sorries”. I’m tired of the mindlessness and of the rendering of feelings as if there are facts, which leads to the arguing of feels. It’s a waste of time to argue someone else’s feelings, it is disrespectful to do so. We all entitled to our feelings, but assert your feelings or disregard another’s, shows a lack character and disrespect. Finally, I’m tired of seeing individuals walk aimlessly through other people lives not considering how they could be the cause or the effect that can bring a person to awareness. To be aware is to gain understanding and having understanding renders you wisdom. I wake up each day knowing how easy it to stay on the wrong side of right, so I put in the daily conscious effort to stay on the right side of right.
