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 look around you and notice five things you find meaningful.
Easy for me. Or so I thought. I wasn’t quite sure what meaningful might me for things, but I saw the definition: “having a serious, important, or useful quality or purpose.”
Lots around here that is meaningful.
This trailer is useful and has a lot of purpose. It helps us feed every day and keeps horses healthier.
This guitar challenges me, pleases me, and entertains me. It has become a part of my life.
This sprayer, since repaired, helps me care for our property.
I’ve never been one for many neck or face coverings. Even while skiing, I wear less than the family, but I’ve been keeping masks and bandanas in the cars. They are useful, and for now, important.
Useful, but also important in that these dishes and utensils are how I feed the family and gather them together. They help me enjoy cooking, and give the family time together. Not to mention the power, joy, and necessity of the food itself.
