March Writing Prompts, Day 22 – Something lost, something given

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt, March’s Writing prompts.

Today, “Something lost, something given”.

This reminds me of something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately.

Over the past few years, I have heard and read a lot of complaints about social media and how much time we spend online, when we should be more social, hanging out with friends, etc.  Now in this time of self isolation and social distancing, where would we be now without all our online technology and social media?  We have indeed lost something, but what we have lost due to social distancing, we have found again through what we used to complain was causing social distance.

  1. Great post. I was thinking something along the same lines earlier this week! Thank you

  2. Well said! 🙂

  3. Good point! I am grateful for the connection to my blogging friends, esp. since I retired. Living rurally, social distance is pretty common here.

    • My aunt and uncle are quite rural too, and already used to the social distance. Definitely a different feeling when you’re used to the rush of the city.

  4. So very true… 😉

  5. Very true. We are finding value in online communities at the same time we’re isolating ourselves. I guess like everything else–the best is a balance of both worlds.
