We’d love to drop all and explore the world outside we tell ourselves, but the time never seems right. Settling into our lives we get so obsessed with holding onto our domestic certainties, that we forget why we desired them in the first place. Vagabonding is about gaining the courage to loosen your grip on the so-called certainties of this world. Vagabonding is about refusing to exile travel to some other seemingly more appropriate time of your life. Vagabonding is about taking control of your circumstances, instead of passively waiting for them to decide your fate.
Ever since I read the book The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, I’ve followed him on his blog and various social media outlets. Today, he posted this video which is an excerpt from Vagabonding by Rolf Potts. I’m not sure if he’s simply promoting the book or just liked the video and decided to post it, but either way I thought it was worth sharing.
I hear people say, “Someday I’ll – fill in the blank -” quite often – myself included at times. This video is about travel, but I think it hits home on the idea, that today is someday. We shouldn’t be putting off the things we want to accomplish, the relationships in our lives, or the things we want to experience until, “someday”.
There are 7 days in the week, and someday isn’t one of them.
