I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, 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 show your gratitude to people who are helping to make things better.
I go to stores and town a few times a week. Part of this is fresh food, part is needing things to keep the ranch going. Spring is often maintenance and repair time, along with regular feed items for horses.
As I go, I’ve made it a point to thank people for being open, coming to work, and even just doing their job. I’ve been tipping extra in many restaurant places, because I can afford it and I know many of others are struggling.
Small things, but I do appreciate everyone doing their jobs, however small, at a time like this.
