Your Heart Understood Mine


Dear Friends,

I've been feeling like I need to open up a little more and express some things.
This Year Of The Fire Engine business is really sinking in.
You see not only do I want to feel like I look better on the outside but I desperatly want to become a
better person.
I want to feel like a Fire Engine inside and out.
I am too hard on myself.
It's something I struggle with everyday.
I feel like Joe March, always working on perfecting oneself.
I think we all need to take a minute to ourselves and really think about how amazing we are and how wonderful are lives are right NOW.
We are beautiful, loving, giving, creative, smart woman and we deserve to stop being so hard on ourselves.
So, please give yourself a minute to remind yourself of that.
You deserve it.

love love love,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. I promiss that I too will take a minute to remind myself of my good qualities. 
"I am hopelessly flawed."
I have a hard time taking my own advice.

Okay this might be too much info but I was in the store the other day and I bought a red bra & it made me think of your Fire Engine year. I HAD to buy it because I was like I feel like a siren & a fire engine in it. Your words are powerful & not going unnoticed! I thank you for your posts! It made me feel better about myself! =)

Dearest Melanie,

I am so happy that you bought your Fire Engine red brazier. You are a Siren! I think we all need to treat ourselves and constantly tell our inner voice that we are HOT and amazing. Thank you for your comment, it made my day.

I adore you,
Fritzi Marie

Jo March is someone I've always compared myself too.
You are right - we are all way too hard on ourselves. I think just the fact that you are willing to be so introspective and are wanting to work towards betterness already makes you a better person!

Love love,

I needed this today. Thank you so much. It is so true and I am very much like you. Very hard on myself, not willing to accept myself.. thanks again. This really speaks volumes to how awesome you are (even though I could already tell).

Thanks so much for reminding me! I am also too hard on myself and tend to saying "yes" to things I should say "no" to.
You are such an inspiration - love ya lots! xxx

Love you so Kitty. Look at how much you inspire others! It's so special. You are so special! I am so proud to be your friend!

The older I get (I just turned 34!!!), I find it easier to accept myself - flab, grey hairs, unaccomplished goals and all!

On most days I try to think, I'm strong. I'm a fighter. I'm a hard worker and I'm not going to give up (unless it's a diet!)!

Like Stuart Smalley said "I'm good enough. I'm smart enough, and doggone it! People like me".
Now I'm even ok when they don't!

Thanks for the cheerleading my sweet and gorgeous Kitty!

Dear Kat,
I love this post. I think a lot about how easy it is for me to see how beautiful my friends are (you included!) and how hard it is for me to see myself as such. In return, they have a hard time seeing themselves as beautiful and are constantly reassuring me of my good qualities. We should all try to see ourselves the way we see each other, which is very beautiful, colorful, and kind. I think you are one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out, and am so happy to know you.
Lots of love always,
Amanda
