Daily Coping 1 Apr 2022

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 choose to smile today at something you encounter.

I tend to smile (and wave) at people. And horses. I’ll wave to the horses, which my wife thinks is silly.

I smile at things I see, though, and often it’s something a kid does. Kids are amazing humans, and they view the world in fascinating ways.

For me, I was smiling recently at SQL Bits, where I saw people hugging and shaking hands. It’s something I’ve missed at events, the closeness of friends. Most people asked others if it was OK, and for the most part it was.

    I talk to all of the animals I see. Not just the horses :-).
    I am coming in person to PASS Summit just for that reason. it’s been far too long in seeing people and meeting them.

    What about mooing at cows? I hope that’s acceptable.
