Good Advice From Dr. Seuss

I still remember being stuck in the Pittsburgh airport for hours trying to keep my daughter, who was two at the time, as contained as possible while we figured out how to get a flight home. Not fun! The thing that helped both of us get through the ordeal was Dr. Seuss. We kept reading Dr. Seuss’ alphabet book over and over. The first lines are seared into my consciousness; “A, a, a, a – what begins with A? Aunt Annie’s alligator – a a, a.” I’ve always loved the symmetry of Dr. Seuss’ stories and rhymes. If you’re up for a reading challenge try to get through “Fox in Socks.” Anyway, I stumbled on this quote from Theodor Geisel and I’ve always enjoyed it.

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter” – Dr. Seuss

Enjoy being who God has uniquely made you to be, enjoying the freedom He’s given you to be you.

  1. I always prided myself on being a mom who could read Fox in Sox to her kids at bedtime with minimal stumbling. 😉 Love the quote you mentioned.
