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 watch the sunset and reflect on the world.
I was hoping for a weekend off, but it’s not coming. Mother’s Day was slightly off, but we had my son’s college graduation party and one practice, so it was only a slight break. Since May, I’ve had volleyball on two weekends (and next) and this weekend I’m helping a kid move with some practices around that. I truly am looking forward to the season ending and a little more free time.
I write this because Thursday night was really the only time off this week. I scheduled yoga one night and had to cook, dinner with a friend another, and practice two others. As my wife went to feed horses, I sat outside watching and watching the sun start to go down.
I also grabbed a bottle of wine and a couple glasses to take out and just relax, sitting and thinking about the rapidly changing world, the hope for the future, and some mourning for those that have, or are, suffering.
