Don’t wait too long…

I believe families, friends, and even just acquaintances of simple encounters take for granted what is directly in front of them. The time the bulb finally lights is when it’s too late. All the playful games, and/or bullshit usually comes to an end when that happens,   although, in many situations, it is too late to appreciate what was lost or what could have been gained.

To those who accept the perspectives, outlook, and / or learning curves of others, thank you; you are the ones  who made a conscious decision to overlook the individual flaws we each have and decided to stick it out. In a lot of situations when the bulb clicks on it’s only when one is saying their goodbyes at the grave site. That slab of stone will listen, but cannot reach out a hand to shake or reach around and give one that embrace for which you waited. So, my simple message is “Don’t wait too long.”


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.
