Those Who Matter Don't Mind

"Be who you are 
and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind."

Dr Suess

I am dealing with some scary financial things right now.
The stress of it all is wearing on me and sometimes I do and say stupid things.
I'm glad that I know I will be forgiven by those who matter. XX's

What do you think about this saying??

  1. I'll drink to that...and did

  2. I only wish I had lived by that great motto years (actually decades) ago. Those that DO matter won't, because they love us for who we are.

    I like what Lady Blah Blah said, I'll buy the next round.

    A big darn hug to you Renee. Write me if you need to vent. xoxo

  3. I think the saying is PERFECT!!! Hang in there cause you matter to me!! ;)

  4. Renee, you are wonderful. These are very trying, uncertain times. Many have and are experiencing serious alterations to lifestyles and livlihoods. Only a few people I know have not experienced grave changes as most people I know are independent self employed individuals. In our county alone 300 teachers lost their jobs. I am thinking of you, and hope you will have wisdom in knowing what to do.

  5. Renee, it is so true, and even though we know we will get through it all. It is ver scary at times. Try to see the bright life ahead.

  6. thank g-d for my FRIENDS!!!


  7. I love it! You can do it, honey! (I'm singing "I will survive" to myself just for you!)

  8. Too true, too true, my pet. I guess if we keep coming back it is because you matter and we don't mind! Take it slowly, remember to breathe and you'll be fine. I just know you will!!!

  9. I like it....very true, Renee. Sorry for your trials, Sweetie! Will be praying for you. Things will get better. xo

  10. Renee,

    Take a deep breath and say this:

    I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious, and Happy.

    Repeat...often...daily. Post this all over your home, car, your purse and write it down for each year of you age (this will commit it to memory). The universe will match your belief. So Believe as I do about U!


  11. OOOOh I sense a bad day pour vous...So I bring up a funny quote by my Hero: Oscar Wilde, who said about debt: " One must have some sort of occupation nowadays. If I hadn't my debts I'd have nothing to think about..."Hang in there sweetie and don't think you are alone.....We all have those money issues but are not so beautifully candid about it...:)xo maryanne

  12. Hang in there Renee....winters coming soon....i hope!

    Love the saying but as George always tells me...I need a filter!

  13. When anything bad happened publicly I would say, to the people who don't know me it doesn't matter, to the people who do know me, they know the truth.
    Stress is a hideous untouchable malady these days. And remember:
    If it's not fatal or permanent - you can handle it! Along with a little help from your friends...xx's

  14. I LOVE that Renee. ALL will be well, don't sweat. One day at a time. You can vent here too!
    love and hugs,

  15. I can live by that :-)
    xo xo

  16. I am not sure about the saying. The only thing I know is that what you think and say does matter..., it's your point of attraction, I believe.



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
