Be the change.

Be the change.

Every path takes us somewhere and not all paths are the same.

Over the years I have traveled to, and lived in, many cities, towns, and states. The one common theme that I have experienced, witnessed, and realized is life goes on and you have to allow the negative to wash out or you will drown.

Every path has a purpose.

Not every person will like or understand you. Not every person will be on your side or want to see you succeed. There are those who will try to push you down, try to do everything they can to break you, and see you fail.  There are those who are jealous of your inner strength.  Then you have a few who want to see, acknowledge, and support you.  Embrace those few. Cherish those few and keep moving forward.

See you in the next post!


Author: The Ordinary Compass

Hello and welcome to this collection of anecdotes from my years of ordinary moments and timeless memories. I try to share a positive message, as well as lessons learned which have helped me appreciate life. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple (positive) gesture. I write in the hope that I can make a difference and you as the reader will also see the possibilities that surround you, and as well that the little things do make a big difference. I’m originally from New Jersey, have traveled and lived on both the east and west coasts, and have happily been a Virginia resident for more than ten years. I have been married for over ten years; my wife is my anchor and has kept my compass correct. I have always been an individual who likes the outdoors. I like taking my time to think about the outcomes of situations. I enjoy philosophy and love science. I am no stranger to high adrenaline activities and love everything that revolves around water. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment, re-blog (with credit), or just read along! –Robert Konz.
