Ergh. I DO need a root canal. Of course I need it before July 1, when my medical savings account gets replenished.
A long while ago, Shelley wrote a post on reframing and happiness: the gist was that you need to reframe bad, challenging events as opportunities, or something along those lines. Her specific example had to do with taxes. I totally agree: when I was a starving student, I couldn't wait to pay income tax.
Let's try reframing the root canal: I am so lucky that I have enough in my emergency fund to pay for this thing without compromising my trip to Nantes.
I glanced up from my screen and saw this book: Frame Analysis.
Aren't I lucky that I already have this book because it's kind of expensive?
Not sure if this is working. Have you reframed anything lately?
