Pronoia is a neologism coined to describe a state of mind that is the opposite of paranoia. Whereas a person suffering from paranoia feels that persons or entities are conspiring against them, a person experiencing pronoia feels that the world around them conspires to do them good.
I think pronoia is a mindset everyone should have; to always see the positives in things and situations and how everything is somehow conspiring to bless you.
It’s really fascinating how wherever I go, it always seems there are people and things stationed to help me. I have experienced this way too many times for it to be just coincidence.
I walk into a place or city I have never been before and somehow, it’s like every person and thing in the city has been expecting my arrival.
It doesn’t mean I always have things easy. I still have my difficult times and all but sometimes pieces just fall in, it’s like a chain reaction and it stuns me that sometimes I need to take a minute or two to just take it all in.
Let me share an instance,
There was one time I was running late for an important meeting, It was like the clock was counting down and I had just a few minutes to meet up. I had been delayed at home for reasons beyond my control.
So I hurry out to the bus stop, and in that split second this woman drives by and pulls over, she looks at me and says “Where are you going?”
To cut the long story short, let’s just say I arrived in time and in style😎.
Pronoia and optimism kind of go hand in hand. You know how they say good thoughts and positive confessions attract good things to your life, I think that’s how it works. *Don’t ask me who said what😒*
The point is,your thought process actually affects your life. So maybe it’s time to take a bias towards pronoia. It may sound illogical but it is what it is.
Enjoy your Wednesday!🌼
