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 offer to leave a positive message for someone to find.
I keep meaning to do this more, leaving physical notes for family around the house. Too often I think of it and then get distracted by something else. I lack post-its, and my handwriting isn’t great. The friction here leads me to not do this.
I do have index cards, so I decided to take a few and follow Todd Kleinhans’ lead, writing a note to someone. I wrote a couple for my wife and daughter and left them where they’ll find them.
The messages are private, but intended to be positive and thankful.
