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 give thanks, list the kind things others have done for you.
I am very thankful for my life, especially with where I am today. I tend to do many things for myself, but here are a few things people have done for me in the last week:
- cooked for me
- brought me something I forgot
- bought me a drink
- thanked me for doing my job
- sent a kind note after I finished something
- praised a piece of work
- did a favor I asked
- thanked me for cooking
There are more, but I am finding myself taking note more often when someone does something kind, rather than dismissing or accepting it as something I’d do.
Instead, I’m learning to feel gratitude for little things.
