Things on a personal level: pronoia.

Things on a global level: paranoia.

I'm gonna get good and then get after it. Thanks.

    Pronoia: the belief that the universe is conspiring in your favour.
I had to look it up. I'm a little proanoid, but I mostly believe you have to take the first steps to change your life. Then the universe will rush in to help.

Thanks for the definition. I think i may be a bit pronoia too.

There's luck, good luck, and there's Hubski luck. Cheers to that!

We're all trying to save the world. I think that's what brought us here.

I feel like just leaving the empty space as is. The colorful Hubski logo takes all the attention to itself.

Scratch and sniff? The scent shall be "progress", my favorite.

Ha ha OftenBen thanks for badgering me!!

Note: I was actually quoting myself. I don't know if you were around when I posted the story about the universe conspiring in my favour, but that's where that line comes from.

I am also a proanoid because I've noticed that sometimes, the universe steps up to help even when we don't ask it. I probably posted that story in hubski in 2013.

I call it momentum.

You call it 'the universe rushing in to help.'

Some people call it 'karma.'

It's something I'm learning more and more about each day.

I'm learning the difference between gratitude/contentment and mental/moral stagnation.

Being sort-of okay with how things are does not preclude the possibility for change. In fact, being sort-of okay with how things are is in fact necessary to maintain sanity when trying to effect change.

I did a few things, sure, but I've been wrestling with deservedness. Many other people work just as hard as me. I'm gonna make damn sure I'm riding into battle for them every time I lift my pinky. That all sounds like hogwash, I know, but I'm good for it. Pinky swear.
