There is no downside to being a generous person. Participating in acts of random kindness is never going to turn out bad. We know this , and yet it can be easy to get caught up in self-doubt and second guessing. What if they don’t like it? They probably have this already. What about the environment? I have to admit, having to think about the environment ON TOP OF being generous and looking for fun gifts is super annoying. A whole category of gifts is suddenly off limits. But it also opens up other possibilities. Like, giving of time (I’ll help you with that project), sharing ideas (I know just the book for you!), and exchanging skills (I would love to chop your firewood!). Bottom line, the spirit og generosity emanates in countless, surprising ways. And guess what? As I’ve become more generous myself, I’ve also received a lot more gifts in return. Flowers. Chocolate. Invitations. Compliments. Ideas. Support. Being generous is the gift that keeps on giving.
