I taught Ayaan this positive affirmation on his 2nd Birthday last year. In hopes that he would one day memorize it, understand it and use it as a motivational tool whenever he needed it. Well he shocked me this morning. Out of no where he started repeating it, so I pulled out my phone. He ended (with enthusiasm lol) once we made it to our destination💙. So proud of the little boy he is growing into. #BlackBoyJoy #MorningAffirmation #PositiveAffirmation #Baby360Style #FroBaby #3YearOld #BoyMom #ToddlersOfInstagram
I remember the scene in the film "The Help" in which Viola Davis' character Aibileen teaches the little girl, whom she was taking care of, three phrases to affirm herself: "You is smart. You is kind. You is important."
Similar to that, this video of a little boy named Ayaan reciting affirmations, which his mother taught him when he was two, is one of the cutest and most inspiring things I have seen of late.
