No, that’s not a typo.
Today I [re]learned a little lesson about letting things be good enough. I was working to get yesterday’s vlog post ready, and I was deeply unhappy with some of the raw footage I’d shot. So, the overachiever part of me started clamoring for me to reshoot it, and the rest of me was like, “No, it’s just fine. It’ll be just fine, just leave it.”
“It’s good enoug.”
Of course, I knew what she meant, and at the time it was just a typo, but instead of just laughing and moving on, I had a [rare] moment of insight – just as leaving off the “h” was not so egregious an error so as to render her response meaningless, so too was my lighting problem excusable. Even though it was not completely perfect, it was still “good enoug.”
So my message to you today is this:
Sometimes good enoug is good enoug.
Anybody ever have a moment of insight like that, where you learned something useful and slightly amusing that helped you get through the rest of your day? Did it stick with you for very long afterward? Did it make a difference in the way you live your life, or did it lose its meaning after sharing it with someone else? I love those little tidbits, I try my best to remember them as much as I can!
