Monthly Motivation-“You is Kind, You is Smart, You is Important” The Help

Monthly Motivation for June of 2023.  

I had recently finished the book “The Help”  When I found out there was a movie, I could not wait to see it. There were many times in the movie I found myself angry at the injustice and other times touched by the tenderness. The love in the quote repeatedly spoken by Aibileen to the little girl in her care touched my heart.

“You is kind. You is smart. You is important” 

Words we all need to hear when we are little and continue to need to hear as we age.  They are words of encouragement, support, and love.  In our humanness, we sometimes fail to encourage others with words they may desperately need to hear.  Sometimes we fail to give the hugs, the support, the time that we could share with others.  We get caught up in life and its problems, its busyness. 

 In the times when we feel alone, when we feel unimportant or feel downright stupid, we need to remember that is not how God feels.  To God, we are important.

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.

  ~St. Augustine

My lips praise you because your faithful love is better than life itself!” 

Psalm 63:3

Don’t forget, even when you don’t believe it, that you are important.  There is a reason you are here, and maybe part of that reason is for you to let someone else know that….” they is kind, they is smart, they is important”.  People need someone in their lives to make them realize their importance.  In supporting others, you become even more important in another person’s life, in another person’s world. That is an amazing gift we can share with others.

 I want to add also, “You is loved.”  If you feel no one loves you, know God does,

and to him, you are everything.

God Bless you on Your Journey
