What is Pressure by Roses from Bones?

Pressure is the official newsletter for Roses from Bones, where it’s my goal to help you grow through weekly discussions on ancient philosophy, mental health, modern life, relationships, and the concept of antifragility.

Pressure takes the form of a weekly blog-style post, typically around 500 words, delivered directly to your email inbox. It includes a discussion, a Quote of the Week for inspiration, and a Question of the Week for meditation.

You can also expect a monthly Roses from Bones update, some personal reading recommendations, shop announcements, and early access to any of my new original music.

The goal of Pressure is for us to work together to improve ourselves so that we can improve the lives of the people around us.


Live On Purpose. Memento Mori.

We must always remember that soon, we — and everyone we love — will die. Death does not wait, negotiate, or discriminate. The time to get your life right is now — because tomorrow could be too late.

"Not to live as if you had endless years ahead of you. Death overshadows you. While you're alive and able — be good." — Marcus Aurelius

So what’s the purpose of life? I believe that the purpose of life is to experience joy and to leave the world better than you found it.

Joy is the easiest thing to capture, yet the easiest thing to lose. It’s my goal to help you attain and hold onto joy by cultivating self-mastery, serving others, and living well — while you can.

Holding onto joy requires virtue, focus, and boundaries. It also requires us to let go of the things we can’t control, accept our circumstances, and learn to be grateful for things that disrupt our comfort.

Together, we can help each other dissect the dead wood and twisted vines of selfishness, bitterness, and excess in order to grow anew in the ashes of who we used to be — like Roses from Bones.

If you’re ready to walk this road together, join the tribe.

I’m Chris Fritz. I'm a writer, musician, marketer, and super-nerd. I live in Florida and I love the Legend of Zelda.

I stay pretty busy running a few e-commerce stores, working on a solo music project, building a freelance digital marketing business, and publishing this weekly newsletter about personal growth.

However, none of that stuff pays the bills — for that, I stock shelves at a local grocery store.
