Here is a little interrupt until I finish up the next virus email…
I don’t like the way…
People box other people into categories they define.
And if they can’t define you, into the odd bin you go!
Well odd is the best group to be categorized in by far.
Here is why.
Nobody gets to define you really, all they get to say is that your odd!
But what does that mean?
Is it that your uneven?
Is it that your not a match to make a pair?
You get the idea.
I’ve been odd, by that definition all my life.
I didn’t know that I was being odd, unmatched or not even.
But it has been my condition for so long now that to seek to become other won’t happen.
Here is a picture of that…
People crave success.
To be successful they pursue this grail with all out effort.
It is written about, taught, quoted and lauded as the pinnacle of life.
Be successful they all say, but at what?
You are found to be odd if you don’t aim for the winners spot.
Odd. But I am happy with life.
Often, way to often that winners post is found by the odd.
Then everyone else adopts the pattern of the oddly lived life in seeking to win too.
And now they become odd for it doesn’t work for them??
Oh! I have my ambition, but it isn’t the one fashioned by the conformity police.
And, until I succeed on my terms I will remain odd.
Then, when success tosses its gilded lily at me.
All can say what my unconventional ways meant.
Every odd duck, stopped following the rest of the ducks and went looking for the pond they wanted to swim in.
Often not by design, but by circumstances.
its how they go to where they were going.
Here is where to go to learn more…
An old Alabama Preacher named Bob Jones said this.
“The right road leads out at the right place.”
All that matters is this: are you on the right road?
If you are, being odd, uneven or mismatched doesn’t affect the outcome.
If your on the right road, stay the course.
When it comes out at the right place. All will laud you then, but not now.
So stay your course, I say, stay your course and live the life of odd.
Now in my life this is part of what has made me odd to many.
But it’s what makes me attractive to others too!
I hold this dearly to be true LINK
purpose of life.
