A series of moments (rebuild-confidence time)

This weekend I got into the mindset that feels that I haven't earned the right to know as many cool people as I know, where I manage to forget that these cool people like me for good reasons. And now I'm working to climb out of that mindset, because it is like a metaphorical hole. But not as deep a hole as maybe I imagined.

Enough not-great moments. I need to cause more Kick-Ass Moments.
