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 list what values are important? Use them today.
Compassion, Positivity, Perseverance.
For me, these matter. This past weekend I was camping with family and friends. Friends can be hard, and I had some in my family that were struggling with the extra people. I made it a point to listen and not offer solutions or judgment, but be understanding and supportive. And give a hug.
I’ve also been working to rehab my ankle. I couldn’t do a lot of walking, though I did some. Still using a cane, but also trying to remain positive that it is getting better.
I also had to persevere and keep moving along, even when the ankle hurts and I’m a little sad I can’t participate as much as everyone else. However, I keep moving forward.
