never say never

Daily writing prompt
What place in the world do you never want to visit? Why?

There are no places in this world that I’ve ruled out to never visit. I’d love to see as much of the world as I can! But then again, being a “world traveler” would increase my useage of all sorts of resources that might be better used in other ways – or maybe just not used. I don’t want to be selfish about it, but I do enjoy seeing and learning from new and different.

There are some really difficult, sad, dark, dangerous places in this world. I wouldn’t intentionally seek out those places. For instance, the red light district of Amsterdam would not be a healthy place for me. However, if I could go there with the means and plan to help people ensnared in the sex trade break free from it, then that would be a good reason to go, yes? No other reason seems prudent.

Here’s the deal: I’ve learned to never say never when it comes to places I wouldn’t go. My experience has been that’s when God just smiles and says wait & see.

    To be fair, I don’t know just how selfless it *really* is, as I sit in the comfort of my current surroundings… but thank you for the encouraging words 😊
