Happy New Year! I pray that your new year will be one filled with love and joy. I am bringing in a new theme to my blog emphasizing kindness, music and gratitude. There will still be poetry and articles on Mississippi as these things bring me joy. In an effort to live more intentionally, I will be adding posts about random acts of kindness.
Random acts of kindness have had a profound effect on my life. It has taught me love, empathy, and compassion. During some of the darkest times these acts have given me hope and a reason to live. I will never know the names of all the people whose acts of kindness have affected my life. Each act has created a ripple effect that has changed me and now affects everyone that I meet in so many unexpected ways. Giving without expecting anything in return is one of life’s greatest joys.
In a world filled with fear and despair one act of kindness can change the course of someone’s life. A train of random acts of kindness has the power to create hope and love. Simple things such as a smile and word of encouragement are so powerful.
Please join me in this year of kindness. I welcome ideas and stories of how each of you has changed a life through the power of giving. Together we can make a difference.
The second goal for me in this new year is to relearn to play the flute. I played it in elementary and middle school. It has numerous benefits as well as a fun instrument to play. My progress should be entertaining. Throughout the year there will be a few videos of me playing the flute.
A final goal for this year is to exercise gratitude for all blessings. Some of my poetry will reflect this goal.
Thank you for reading and commenting on Piper’s Adventures. Your support has made a difference in my life and I appreciate all of you.
Here’s to the New Year. May 2022 be a year filled with love and joy. Cheers!
