The name I give something determines its value to me. This is so real that my perception of a situation can totally change depending on the name I gave it. And its result as well.
A house fire can be the end of me or the opportunity to overcome adversity.
My birthday can be a beginning or an end.
My tendency to overeat can be a curse or a blessing in disguise because it forces me to practice self-control.
A storm can be depressing or exhilarating.
My life can be a drag or an adventure.
How are you choosing to name your events and situations?
