Daily Coping 31 May 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 share a quote you find inspiring to give others a boost.

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”Stephen King

As I get older, I feel the weight of time and the pressure to enjoy life more and focus on what I experience rather than what I have. This quote reminds of of that. I want to pack more things into life rather than letting it pass me by.

This doesn’t mean I’m racing through a bucket list, though I am trying to do things that I find intriguing and interesting. However, more I want to engage in life with friends, appreciate the time with others, and enjoy it to the fullest extent.

Less time with a screen where I can and more time listening and talking with others. More time looking at the world around me and changing my view. More time doing things that make me smile with my wife and kids.

Those can be standing at the fence and watching horses.

It could be traveling to another country and staring at the vast sky in our world with my daughter.

It could be standing on a sideline and coaching kids on how to strive for something and compete with others.

This is about living life in a way that makes it better than it might be if you let it pass you by.
