Today’s word that came up in the shuffle is Mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a powerful word. The dictionary definition meaning of mindfulness “is the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something”.
The card accompanying is the Princess of Cups from my Witches Tarot deck.
These two are powerful because once again the suit of cups ties in with our emotions and the suit of cups also represent the element of earth.
Our mindfulness should come from a pure place, especially when embarking on our business ventures and how we nurture that.
Business can be ruthless. Listening to David Goggins, he states you have to stop giving a fuck about what people think of you. He also explains, “not giving a fuck” is not saying you don’t care or you’re not being mindful. We have friends and family who support our ventures, however, focusing on those who do not are the ones we need to push aside in order for us to strive. If they cannot be mindful about what we care about, we cannot waste that time to feel the same for anything that doesn’t give back.
The other part of being mindful is caring about what we are pursuing. If you are not interested in what you are doing, it doesn’t make you a failure or lazy, but perhaps take a step back and taking a break or maybe revisiting those goals. Never pursue anything just because someone else is doing it. Having that mindfulness towards what you looking to achieve means you care and that will show.
In relationships, mindfulness is being aware of your partner and their habits. How you interact with each other, the communication between you how mindfulness plays in your relationship. We challenge ourselves every day to be better, do better and live better. Although the old saying of, “we only live once”, can play in our minds and we rush to complete everything in this life, if we are not mindful about what we do, how we interact with our partner and our friends, we can miss out on opportunities and experiences.
Being mindful doesn’t mean having to care about every single thing that touches you or feeling obligated but being aware. The more aware you are of your ventures, the more successful you will be and the more mindfulness you will experience, moment to moment, day to day.
