I 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 remember that you are enough, just as you are.
I can be better, but my wife tells me how she appreciates me. My kids will let me know as well. At times, I hear this at work or from attendees at events. The girls I coach always ask me to repeat a year with them.
I’m successful and I appreciate all those comments. I do strive to be better, to not only gain wisdom with age, but learn to apply it. However, I also know that being who I am is enough, even if I never get better.
I think about accepting myself more and more as I can see retirement. I’m still driven, but I’m less concerned about it.
I continue to seek peace daily.
