I open my refrigerator a lot. I guess I’m kind of a piggie! But really, I work mostly from home, I cook a lot and I drink lots of water and kombucha so that means I’m always popping in and out of the kitchen to grab something. My fridge door currently displays four important reminders for me. Each one makes me smile.
1 – Our Save the Date. We are only 55 days away from the wedding! Eeek!
which leads me to….
2 – “The World’s Most Epic To-D0 List to be accomplished by November 1st 2012”. So much to do! But I’m slowly checking items off of it every day!
Did I mention that we are moving to CO less than three weeks after the wedding….craaaazy!
3 – “Our Vow” (FY posted this on the fridge door right after our engagement.) This is a beautiful and inspiring quote by His Holiness Radhanath Swami about marriage as a spiritual practice. I love reading these words every morning. They remind me that conscious partnering is yoga too. My dear friend from college will be reading this quote at our ceremony in October.
4 – “Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age“. These aphorisms are wonderful reminders and affirmations about positively relating to the world and to others from a place of love, compassion, patience and dedication. Yogi Bhajan imparted so much wisdom – I’m very grateful for all his teachings in my life.
In college, I wrote with a Sharpie on my bathroom mirror, “You Are Beautiful!” It was a nice thing to see every morning, especially on those (many) days when this didn’t exactly feel true. This is a simple way to add a little extra positivity and love into your daily routines. Hanging up some inspiring words or beautiful and empowering images around the house is a great way to enhance your mindfulness and joyfulness in your day to day life. Give it a try!
