The Way I Spell
I could never spell.
I don’t let the fact that I don’t spell well get in my way.
I sound out the word on sound at a time. Once the word is written down, I look at it. Then I Spell Check the word/s. If the word/s do not come up in the Spell Check I try to find another word that is close to what I meant and if I can’t I let the mistake go. I move on. I leave the flaw on the page. I don’t tear up the article and hold my head in shame and think, “Life is so hard.” I move on and leave behind something that is not perfect.
Perfection is the enemy of excellence. A pimple has gotten in my way of going out on a Saturday night and a messy kitchen has kept guests out of the kitchen, but spelling is an area that i have practiced letting go of perfection and knowing the glory of expressing my self and moving on
I have accepted I can not spell. I live with it, knowing it and move anyway. I don’t write with a sense of inferiority, instead I write with a desire to express my self knowing I don’t write well.
Where can you let go of having to get it perfect, and move anyway with your head held high and your pen at the ready?
