Broadly speaking, mindfulness is the quality of being aware of your experience in the present moment with acceptance. Acceptance doesn’t mean you should resign yourself to the way something is. It also doesn’t mean you should tolerate injustice. Instead, acceptance just means a willingness to see a situation as it is, including both the pleasant parts and not-so-pleasant parts. Sometimes being mindful results in a feeling of peace, calmness, and groundedness. Other times it involves a willingness to be present with uncomfortable feelings or experiences such as fear, pain, aversion, and prejudice. When people are aware of their present experience with acceptance--when they are willing to see a situation clearly for what it is--then they are much more likely to feel grounded, aware, and confident when responding to a situation.
