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 write down three things you are grateful for today.
I’m grateful for a lot of things, but the things that stand out today.
1. My kids are happy with us parents. They are all at home this summer, though the older two are living with us for the foreseeable future. We love that, and love having them around for dinner, movies, or just some conversation. They seem to enjoy being around us, which at 23 and 30 is not something I see often with others.
2. My health. I’ve had a couple minor things with health, but fairly minor. Those issues have prevented me from much gym/yoga/walking time for a couple months. I appreciate more and more my health and the things I can do (and I’m looking forward to).
3. The Tesla. I’m lucky that I can afford a car like this. Every time I drive it, it’s a fun experience. I can cruise easily, or I can make my stomach jump by pushing hard on the acceleration.
Lots more, but those are on the forefront of my mind today.
