Why you gotta be so mean?

Over the last few weeks I have been in a few encounters that have really challenged me to keep my mindfulness.   What I mean is that I have been in situations where I meet somebody or see somebody I know and have been completely brushed off.   Not a classic brush off, but a “nose” up i’m better than you behavior.    I didn’t realize how much it bothered me until it happened a few times and it wasn’t just with one individual it was a few different folks.    so.. I had to stop and really think that maybe i’m the problem, maybe i’m giving off a bad vibe that is translating into a mirror coming back to me..  I spent a few days after each encounter to think about what I said, how I came across and I finally closed that I am being normal, but I need to not take anothers reaction as a negative to me, vs. just their reality at that moment.  I don’t know what’s going on with them nor should I judge or translate the behavior.

So..  as I continue to get more mindful, here is one thing I can say..    Be Nice to others.   know how you come across.   don’t be mean or turn your nose up if another doesn’t meet your criteria for whatever..  just be nice..

  • I accept things that I can’t change.
  • I accept those around me for what & who they are.
  • I accept that I am still a student in being mindful and I continue to learn.
  • I accept that life is too short to let small stuff bother me and I let it go!
