Mindful : June 2018
When Antoine cut himself on the coaster at our friend’s house, I opened myself to being optimistic about the outcome. I chose to care and stay close to my humanity. And when I reached out to him the next day, my husband was right: I had potentially given him and his bosses ammunition to take advantage of the situation. I did both of these things mindfully, knowing what was at stake. And still, I made the con- scious choice not to armor myself and act out of fear. I chose optimism. This is the kind of choice we all face every day. Antoine got the message that I had called to check on him, and sent me a text later that day. “It’s okay today, so not to worry,” he wrote. Mindfulness is about being awake to pos- sibility. We can choose, every time, to be open or closed to what comes our way. We can bring fresh eyes and a fresh perspective to each interplay of dark and light. We can be realistic, optimistic, and curious about it all. ● Optimism isn’t about shielding yourself from the truth. Instead it encourages wisdom by knowing yourself. When you live from this place, you show up as a much more powerful presence in all situations. June 2018 mindful 73 get real
