2021 is about to end. we had passed another year by facing pandemic stress bravely. Though the pandemic life has not ended in year 2021 but it had improved in many ways.
On various levels, things got better in year 2021 compare to year 2020.
With higher rate of successful vaccination, we had overcome the nerve-racking anxiety and fear that we had faced during initial phase of pandemic.
Hope in year 2022, we would be able to get rid of the covid virus completely and can enjoy our normal life without the pandemic stress and anxiety.
In the last month of 2021, I am excited to be a part of blog hop “ Saying Goodbye 2021 & Saying hello 2022” hosted by my dear friend Swarnali from thesaffronstoryteller.com.
Usually, each year I write a reflection post during the month of December and it feels awesome to look back and analyze, “how was the passing year?” in term of overall achievements.
Read my last year’s post as “ 8 beautiful memories of not so beautiful year 2020”
But this year, I had thought to give this thought process a break and instead of looking back, I had thought to look ahead. I had made a simple wish list to welcome year 2022.
In this post, I am sharing that Wishlist that I want to accomplished in year 2022. Read the post to know more!
My wish list for year 2022 (8 things that I want to accomplished in year 2022)
Visit India & meet my family
This thing is my first priority for year 2022. It had been long 3 years since I had visited India and meet my family. Due to pandemic restrictions, I had canceled my India visit plan many times during last 3 years. It feels really sad and disappointing that this pandemic has bounded our life in so many ways.
But in upcoming year (2022), I am keeping my spirit high and hoping for the best.
I am hoping things will fall into the right place. And I would be able to visit India and meet my family, in upcoming summer vacation.
Re-start carrier as a medical professional
This one is second important thing that I want to accomplish in year 2022. though it is taking longer than I expected, but I am hoping that I will get my EAD (work visa) in next few months. Due to Visa restrictions (I am on H4 visa and cannot work professionally here in USA), I had waited long to work as a medical professional.
Hoping this year, I will cross that barrier successfully, and would be able to re-start my carrier as a health care professional in year 2022.
Publishing 4th e book
This one is next thing in my wish list that I want to accomplished in year 2022.
Since last 3 years, I had participated in #Blogchatterebook carnival and published three eBooks (Creative kids, healthy eating for busy moms & A2Z of common diseases & their homeopathic treatment). All the books got great response from readers and it was one of the most prestigious moment of my 6 years of blogging journey.
I wish to continue the ritual this year too and want to publish my next eBook in year 2022. I already had a theme in mind, hope things happen according to plan and I would be able to publish next eBook in upcoming months.
Learn Korean language
Learning a new language is in my wish list since long but this year, I want to give this a try with sincerity. This year, I want to learn Korean language but the reason behind this selection is quite silly and funny.
Actually, my girls are a big fan of Korean dramas and to give them company, I had also started watching K-Dramas with them. While watching, I just loved the Korean culture and language. Now, I want to learn more about it by learning Korean language.
I am planning to learn Korean language with my elder one and hoping with this language learning time, we will spend some quality time together.
I had started my professional carrier as a homeopathic lecturer in year 2004 but due to various reasons, I would not be able to continue this for longer. Teaching is my hobby and I love to share my area of expertise with others.
Here in USA, there are many organizations that provide Hindi teaching opportunities. I want to join any of these organization and want to teach other people about our beautiful culture and language.
Explore northern California & plan new travel goals
California is one of the most beautiful state of USA. It is famous for its national parks and stunning landscape and beautiful natural places.
We moved here in year late 2019 and due to pandemic restrictions, we did not get a proper chance to visit and explore this beautiful state.
I hope this year, we can visit, explore and enjoy these beautiful places and can plan new travel goals as a family.
This one is next important thing that I want to make a part of our family ritual activities, this year.
I believe, Volunteering is one of the best way to give back to society and contribute to system from our side. This year (2022), I want to take it seriously.
At my place, my girls are animal lover and they want to keep either dog or cat as a pet. Sadly, I am not comfortable with this additional responsibility but I do not want to dishearten them at the same time.
So, as a convenient option, we are planning to joining an animal shelter as a volunteer. I am sure this step will solve many purpose all together. Girls would be able to have a great time with this activity and we as a family would be able to contribute something meangiful to the society.
Create a support group for women (specially for H4 visa holders)
Though being an introvert, I had not been active in any kind of group activities much in last few years. But this year, I want to come out from comfort zone and want to take a small step in this direction. I want to create a support group for women who struggled due to H4 Visa status.
This thought has come up from a personal observation. I had observed that due to H4 Visa status, many educated women not able to pursue their professional carrier and suffer from various mental and emotional health issues (like depression and lack of satisfaction)
I could co-relate with their emotions so well as I had gone through the similar phase in the past. So, as a small support step, I want to create a support group for women where they can share their personal struggle and can support each other to make this journey a little smooth and peaceful.
So, these were some simple things that I want to accomplish in year 2022. What are your plans for upcoming year? Please share with me about it, in comment box.
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year in advance!
