Those of you who have seen "The Help" will recognize this quote from the movie. I know there's been a bit of controversy, some of which I agree with (and at the least, understand), but I actually enjoyed the movie--this was definitely my favorite takeaway. I say this to my friends a lot but I've started to say it to myself even more. No matter what happens, always remember--
You are kind,
You are smart,
You are important.
If you have kids, take a page from Abileen's book and let them know that too--it's such a powerful statement!
