You become keenly aware of yourself and your surroundings, but you simply observe these things as they are
You are aware of your own thoughts and feelings, but you do not react to them in the way that you would if you were on “autopilot”
By not labeling or judging the events and circumstances taking place around you, you are freed from your normal tendency to react to them
When you are mindful... get to choose how you react to life.
David G. Swartz

Self-awareness is about being comfortable with who you are
The happier you are with yourself, the more likely you'll be to treat others with kindness
Once we can express more self-awareness, we have removed much of our negative self-talk and are more positive
As we express more self-awareness, we have more present-moment awareness and worry less about the future and are less obsessed about events in the past
