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. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to leave a positive message for someone else to find.
An unexpected note is something that can brighten someone’s day. If it’s a positive message, that is, and that’s the goal today.
One thing I do is keep chocolate around my house. My wife and daughter will have a craving periodically, usually every few weeks, and we’re not very close to any stores that sell chocolate they like. The cheap stuff at the local gas station doesn’t cut it. As a result, I keep a few bars around, usually hidden in the house.
My wife will ask me for some, but my daughter will just start hunting. I decided to not take a chance and just write a couple nice notes and tape them to the bars. That way the next time they find one (or I give them one), they get a surprise message.
