“You is Kind. You is Smart. You is Important.”
These kind words are spoken to Mae Mobley by Aibileen Clark in the movie The Help. Aibileen, using these words, always made it a point to remind Mae of the value of the young child.
Too often, people loose sight of simple things, me included. And when we do, life tends to go off the rails; it becomes a train wreck. And in the train wreck, with carnage everywhere it is easy to forget, You is Kind. You is Smart. You is Important. It is only when these simple lemmas can be brought back to focus that life begins a return to normalcy.
So, as a reminder to myself, always remember, You is Kind. You is Smart. You is Important.
