Sometimes I get stuck in the comparison mode-- especially when it comes to my blog.
My blog isn't good enough. I don't have enough followers and my photography is lacking.
My product isn't selling enough. Do I need to change it?
I am not working enough. I am working too much.
These voices swirl in my head and I find it hard to listen to the one voice of God that I believe tells me that I am good enough.
This weekend I went to see the movie The Help. I've blogged about how much I loved the book and have been inspired by Kathryn Stockett.
Although no movie is ever as good as the book, I can still say that I completely enjoyed the movie, especially the message by the main character Abilene.
Leaning over to Maie Mobley, Abilene whispers in the toddler's ear every day this simple message:
You is kind.
You is smart.
You is important.
And Maie Mobley, in faith, repeats it after her.
I think this is something that I need to repeat to myself every day. And maybe it's something you should repeat to yourself as well.
