There is a kind of person I distinctly admire: nomads. Whether they were born into nomadic tribes or left off cultural normalcy for a life on the road, they interest me to no end.
It takes a special kind of person to live without guarantee of what the future will hold. Of course, no one can actually guarantee any future. And that’s where we often get stuck.
We think that the future is something that can be planned – can be manipulated. However, we’re shown time and again that no amount of planning or preparation can ready us for the future. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t.
Nomads understand this and live life accordingly. And that’s something we should emulate.
