Why I’m jealous of a goat herder


Sometimes I just want to roll up into a ball.

Go to sleep in the middle of the afternoon.

And just do nothing.

When I was in Switzerland as few months ago, I envied the life of a goat herder I saw.

Life is so simple for him.

You just wander round the mountain.

Move your goats.

Let them munch grass.

And that’s it.

You don’t concern yourself about having no money.

Or no entertainment.

You live a simple life.

Of course most of us would get bored of that kind of existence.

But for him, it suits him just fine.

And I’m a little bit jealous of how straightforward things are for him.

Maybe I’ll have to herd goats one day.
