I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to be grateful for the little things, even in difficult times.
This is one of those things I try to do often. Even when I’m stressed or in a hurry or upset, I have found if I can stop and look at something that has gone well, I can better cope. I might not be happy, but I can reduce some of the difficulty.
The more I interact with people in this pandemic, the more I am thankful for the ranch on which I live. It can feel a bit stifling at times, but I have plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors. This is my view, relaxing on the front porch with a guitar. Most everything you can see is mine.
I’m also grateful for my guitar, which I enjoy just strumming (poorly) away on and enjoying some quiet time.
