Today’s coping tip is to get back in contact with an old friend.
This is something I don’t do too often, but I have done a few times. I’ve met a lot of great people in my life. Some I worked with, some I encountered in other parts of life. When I go to the UK, I usually see if I can reach out and get the chance to meet someone I know from there for a meal or drink. Which reminds me, I need to reach out to someone and try to make plans for June.
Around here, I’ve met some really interesting people as a part of coaching. I took time recently to go watch a few kids play that I coached in the past, but haven’t seen in some time. I also sat down with a parent who became a friend, but someone I haven’t seen in a few years.
Always good to see friends, and worth making the time.
I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQL Server Central 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.
