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.
Today’s tip is to tell someone how you’re grateful for them in your life.
It’s Thanksgiving, a day traditionally in the US where we give some thanks. Lots of people do this all month, picking something each day. My family does this at dinner, each of us giving a few things we’ve been thankful for this year.
However, this is something you ought to do regularly with those in your life for whom you are grateful. Partners, kids, parents, boss, employee, etc. Remember to appreciate things, and people, in your life.
I do try to let some people know that I an grateful, but not enough. I’d hope I remember to do this monthly, if not more often. There are a lot of people I am grateful for.
In this case, for today, I’m remembering to tell me wife how grateful I am to have her in my life, for all the help, support, love, and joy she brings.
