Mindfulness has nothing to do with a 'state of being' or any emotion. You can be mindful at a funeral, but that doesn't mean that you are in a positive emotional state. It's awareness. We are aware when we are happy, sad, angry, etc etc--any emotional state. It's about recognizing the instability of life and accepting that things are constantly changing. Awareness and work, if you are forced to produce and produce and produce go hand and hand. They are not mutually exclusive because you actually ARE awareness. There's a simplicity and a beauty in realizing that and it increases your love for every moment, you find a kind of expression in everything, even the worst moments of your life. Again, you won't be happy watching Katrina, if anything you would feel an even deeper sense of whatever emotion you do feel because you will fully in the moment.
