Let’s Talk About Babe

You’ve done enough. It’s okay to be tired. You can take a break.

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?

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
