50 ways to be ridiculous generous

I realized — many years ago — that when I behave generously, I feel rich. And I like to feel rich. So I choose to be generous. But “behaving generously” doesn’t necessarily mean “donating money” or “giving away your last cookie.” You can share knowledge freely, instead of hoarding it. You can send a hand-written note, instead of a text message. You can make eye contact, instead of checking out. You can make a life-changing introduction for a friend, instead of letting them “connect the dots” on their own.  You can do big things. Small things. Simple things. All kinds of things. You will never run out of ideas. You will never run out of love. You will only create more.
