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 be grateful for the little things.
I went to the Van Gogh experience last fall. It looked interesting to me and when I mentioned it, my wife bought tickets. It was a fantastic time and for someone that isn’t all that interested in art, I felt the cost and time were well worth the experience.
Since then I’ve downloaded some wallpaper and use it on my desktop. Actually, I have three monitors, so I choose a couple pictures, a work from Van Gogh, and the coping calendar as rotating backgrounds.
The fact I can do that, I can leave up a piece of art on my desktop, and that we have amazing creative artists that produce work for us is something for which I am very grateful.
