The Mindfulness of Corey Booker

The Cory Booker Bungle has quickly become known as the slip up of the month and he seems to be paying the price for his lack of mindfulness. What is mindfulness? Therapists, gurus and yogis talk about this elusive concept of mindfulness.

Mindfulness is staying in the present moment and bringing all your focus and attention to what is going on in the moment  so that we can fully attend to the task at hand and give it our everything.

We can also see mindfulness as quieting our mind so that we can be more purposeful in our actions, perhaps Mayor Booker did not take a deep breath and compose his thoughts in order to succinctly convey his message to his audience. The media has a job and their job is to create news and this is news for the moment in our culture which is so unforgiving of mistakes.

We are all guilty of a lack of mindfulness and we can practice mindfulness throughout our day by tuning out the thoughts and opinions of others and tuning into what is relevant and salient to yourself as an individual. This takes practice but we are all worth that time and effort it  takes to achieve this state of being helping us to be our best selves.

For the kids I work with and to Mayor Booker (of whom I've heard only positive things from citizens in his area and youth within his community), we all make mistakes, we can't go back but we can move forward to be more mindful in the future and do our best to convey our best self daily. Hopefully you will be judged on the sum of actions and what you do for your community rather than on one speech.
