Fire Engine Inspiration


I let myself get in a funk again and I'm scrambling for "fire engine" inspiration.
A little while back Amanda sent me a letter where she shared her fire engine thoughts and they meant so much to me that I thought maybe you would be inspired by them as well. 

Amanda's thoughts on being IN LOVE with yourself:

1.  If you feel sad, let yourself feel sad. 
Be kind to yourself and let yourself feel what you feel. 

2.  Do something nice for someone else. 

3.  Re-read your favorite books, even just a few pages.
Favorite books become a part of you. 

4.  Buy yourself flowers.

5.  Re-arrange your vanity or dresser top. 

6.  Frame a favorite picture of yourself. 

7.  Take yourself on a date to a new place you've never been to and write in your journal or read. 

8.  Find a pretty card in a store, buy it, and write something nice to yourself in it, then frame it.  That way you always see the card, and know what it says inside every time you see it. 

9.  Play and connect with animals. 

Isn't Amanda's list amazing? 
I adore it and I am going to spend the next couple of day's working through it. 
I hope you feel like a "fire engine" everyday but if you don't, you can. 
Here's to our year of the fire engine

hugs,
Fritzi Marie

What an amazing list. Very inspiring. The only thing I would add to it is to call my Mom-- she always makes me feel better when I'm feeling down.
I hope you get feeling good again. You are amazing and beautiful and so very sweet.
Love,
Jane
