Managing a Misfit

Bottom line—you don’t.

It has been nearly two years since posting and as I was reading my past posts, I was wondering if they were going to have any relevance to me today. Also while reading, I was wondering where I was at in my life that I blurted onto a blog what needed to get out of my head.

So, I’ve spent some time thinking about what has been over the past 2 years. A lot has been—and I didn’t necessarily log any of it. Hence, another reason why I’ve been mis-fit in so many areas of my life.

You see, good managers of self are able to complete many things in a fashion that is orderly, tidily, neatly, promptly and with any other “—lys” we choose to associate with good management of life.

Hogwash!

Those are the thoughts of the world, but surely easy to believe. I think they are lies and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more ok with the ebbs and flows of my life and timings. I don’t understand it, but I try to embrace it. Forcing what is not naturally happening is hard—it make me out of alignment, makes me stomp and kick—and sometimes even shut down.

Now is not the time to reveal what’s been happening over the past couple of years that I’ve not recorded. But, it is the time to share that today I got back on the horse by adding pictures, creating a site, writing a profile blurb, creating a new email and Instagram page for said blog.

Misfit thinking has me a little anxious in running all of that as I already run several social media platforms for business and networking. However, I’m in a season and there’s no such thing as managing a misfit. So until the mood changes or the season shifts, I’ll do whatever may strike my fancy.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”
