You’ve done enough. It’s okay to be tired. You can take a break.Shauna Niequist
There’s a scene in the movie Babe where the farmer says to his pig, “That’ll do, pig, That’ll do.” (I added a youtube clip of it. If you’re ready to watch a silly scene click on it.) What’s great is that Babe can talk to the other farm animals and completes his goals with less effort. Not only is it less effort, he’s more polite and allowing the animals to choose for themselves rather than forcing them around.
Today flew by me without any moments for me to stop and think. This scene in Babe reminds me that it’s important to allow moments of appreciation be part of my day. No matter how much effort it feels like I’m putting into my daily goals, I want to take time to appreciate the things I complete throughout the day.
How about you? Do you take time to appreciate the completed tasks big and small? Do you allow yourself to have done enough? To take a break?
