The way of Tea or that thing with the coffee stain


Mindfulness
Japanese Tea ceremony

We all had those days; you fall out of bed - late of course. You pour your coffee, instead into our mouth, all around it and onto your white shirt. After putting on your everyday natural makeup, you look like a showgirl dancing the finale on Broadway. You give an immense effort not to miss the train, and while sprinting towards the train (in high heels) you almost get hit by a car.

You miss the train by nanoseconds, of course.


Cursing on the platform

OK, Situations like that may not have happened to you, but they certainly have happened to me. While standing there on the platform, swearing and indulging in the feeling of “everybody is against me”, “why me?”, “what did I do wrong?”, “what is karma (that bitch) trying to tell me?”


Out!

Whatever the situation, you know you need to turn it around as soon as possible.

In the middle of a super bad day, you are prone to make blank statements like, “I feel so stupid” or “Why is everything and everybody working against me?”

Pause your catastrophic thinking and realize that your mind is cluttered and you tried to be more efficient by doing as many tasks at once.
