Today’s coping tip is to thank three people you feel grateful to and tell them why.
This is something I tend to do privately, thanking people who’ve impacted my life. I’ll do that, but in general, here are the people I want to thank.
Friend 1 is someone I’ve known for many years in Denver. We get together periodically for lunch or dinner, but I’m always happy to have an ear to vent about life, kids, marriage, work, etc.
Friend 2 is someone I’ve known from my work and community experience who has been a friend and support system in many ways over the years. We’ve had the chance to share some tough times and help each other, which I appreciate.
Friend 3 is a friend at work who’s been someone that has supported and helped me grow myself as an advocate.
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.
