When we think about what we are doing, we usually think of our actions, whether it be eating, working, or being socially isolated. This is a very good thing. This keeps us from worrying about what we are doing at all times. However, sometimes when I have the time, I find myself thinking about the things I am doing and what I am doing, for how long, and whether or not it is good.
Being mindful is a lot like life for a lot of us. We think about whether or not we are doing things well, how we are doing things, and whether or not we want to do things more. But the problem is, if you are not mindful, you will never be mindful. You can read a book or do some online research, but you will never be mindful.
It seems like the squid game t-shirt is saying something like: “squid game t-shirt, I am mindful, but it is not really important that I am mindful, because I’m not good at it. So it is not really important that I continue to be mindful”. The problem with this shirt is that it doesn’t seem like a good reason for being mindful. So it might only be used as a “why not me?” shirt.
One of the reasons I stopped wearing the shirt was because it was giving me a headache. It was probably a bad reason though. In fact, it is the worst reason for being mindful. I think it is just as bad as not being mindful.
I understand that there is this thing called mindfulness, and that it is a type of meditation. I understand that is good for a lot of things. But it is also something that is a lot more difficult than I thought. Because when we do our day-to-day activities (things we do all the time), there is so much more going on, and it is not always as simple as putting on that pajama pants and doing our morning exercise routine.
Sometimes, when we do things all the time, we miss the point of our day. This is called meta-cognition or self-awareness. To be honest, I have not really taught myself how to meditate. I don’t know if it is taught or if I just have always had a tendency to do everything right. Anyway, I have a tendency to feel like I have done everything right all the time.
To meditate you need to have a strong sense of the present moment and the flow of time. You can do a lot of this by actually looking at your life. It is called “self-awareness.” As I think about the things I do in my day, I am aware of how much I am missing by doing something different. I am aware of how I am missing the point of my day by not doing things today. Self-awareness can be very powerful.
This is also why I don’t like to wear white. We often wear white for a reason. It’s a sign that we have some sort of consciousness of the moment. It is also a sign of being in the present moment and not in the past.
This is something that I am finding more and more in my life, and I don’t mean just when I am walking on the beach. I am finding it in more subtle ways. When I am watching television, I am aware of the things I am missing by not being in the moment. I am aware of the things I am missing by not being in the present moment. When I am eating a meal, I am aware of the things I am missing by eating a meal.
The squid game t shirt is one of the best examples of this. For me it is a constant reminder of how things change, how people change, how people evolve. It is a constant reminder that everything I have ever liked or learned or experienced has been a product of the times. That every time I read a book, or watch a movie or play a game, or meet somebody for the first time, I am still a product of that time.
