Is it better to have lived in one place all one's life than to have moved around? Compare and contrast.
Since ancient times, there seem to be two prominent types of living: settled and nomadic.
To give extreme examples,
settled people are those who live in one place almost all their lives such as settled tribal Africans
and nomadic people are those who frequently move around such as modern business people jetting around.
Both offer a different quality of life learning.
From a fundamental point of view, no matter where we live, life is life, and it is the same.
For instance, native Africans and modern business people both still have to take care of their everyday matters and responsibilities; there will always be challenges in any environment.
However, the points of contrast are what these different groups experience.
Staying in one place may give those African people the sense of stability, and help cultivate a deep understanding and appreciation for the mother land and nature.
Meanwhile, moving around may give those business people a rich experience of excitement and access to plentiful information and resources, which broadens their horizons and expands exchanges between people.
In conclusion, being settled or nomadic is not that important.
The most important thing is to live consciously here at this moment with sincere appreciation, no matter what kind of circumstances we are in.
Otherwise, we will miss the true gifts of experience which life offers.
