Flying with mistakes

Just a few minutes ago, I realized that I misspelled a word in the title of the blog that posted yesterday! I am not sure why I did not notice it before now. No one sent me a message pointing out my error. There were no snide comments or anything negative brought to my attention. 

The lesson I take from this is that I need to slow down, take my time, focus on the task at hand, and move on. Mistakes happen and a few days ago I would have been terribly upset allowing my imagination to run rampant with all of the 'what ifs' instead acknowledging that the world did not end. I am not even sure if anyone noticed. Okay, that could be good and bad. Good because they understood what I meant to write, bad because maybe no one read it. 

No matter. I survived. I am laughing and I will do better from here on out. I won't promise that it won't happen again. In fact, I am sure that it will and I am okay with that. The world will not end.
