This year, instead of my season of gratitude, I'm going to try 31 days of giving. I've noticed that I have a hard time giving in certain ways, so I'm going to stretch out of my comfort zone and give every day. I don't want this to be about ego, so I'm not planning on reporting what I do, but how it feels. I expect it will feel strange, and sometimes really good. Hopefully more good than strange. Mainly I want to practice living abundantly, and move away from the scarcity mindset.

Tomorrow starts the Month of Bounteous Abundance (MOBA for short?). If anyone knows of resources around this general idea, please share them!

In other news, I got a new job, and will be starting in a different department at the university starting Monday. Yeay me!

What do you mean by resources? Places where you can give?

Well, it might not totally relate, but if you haven't yet, I recommend reading The Gift by Lewis Hyde.

Anyway, I was thinking of
Teachers post projects for which they need money and donors can give to any project that strikes them as of interest. In these harsh economics, more teachers are moving to that sort of thing.
