By now most of you have probably seen this video of little Jessica doing her positive affirmations in the mirror, just loving herself. I came across the video again the other day. A couple of clicks down the YouTube rabbit hole and there I was, watching Jessica welcome her baby sister.
The baby begins to fuss and Jessica, after a moment of surprise at the sound, begins to soothe her new baby, telling her “You’re okay. You’re okay. You’re fine.”
It’s about the sweetest thing ever.
Isn’t that what all of us really want to know? That we’re okay? That we’re fine? That it’s all going to be alright?
Next time I feel like fussing, I hope I remember Jessica. I hope I tell myself, “You’re okay.”
I hope I remember, I’m fine.
