The last Share Your World of 2021

2022 Is bearing down on the world. In my opinion 2021 was 100% better than 2020, but it hasn’t been without its own set of problems and fresh worries. I’m hopeful that 2022 will somehow see a return to ‘life before Covid’ , but I also realize that’s a foolish hope.

I think that if we except that world would return to pre-covid days in 2022, we will be disappointed. This thing won’t go away just yet, specially with so many people in many countries refusing vaccinations. But I am hoping that things will keep on getting better gradually. Already we are allowed to travel and meet people. Those who are vaccinated are getting boosters and are safer than those who aren’t. Children are being vaccinated too and going to school in person. I think things are looking up on the whole.

At 12 a.m. on December 31st/Jan 1st, what will you be doing? (use your own time zone please)

I will be, hopefully and probably sleeping soundly in my bed. The new year will start with or without my being there to welcome it. My sleep is very important to me to have a productive day ahead so I will go to bed on my usual time, turning my phone to “do not disturb”.

Is there a tradition you have for New Year’s Eve?

If we can, I and my husband go out for dinner on 31st December. But it’s not set in stone. If any of the children are available, they are invited to join us too.

Do you have any hope or reason you find that next year will be better?

I always have hope. Without hope how can we survive.

What’s the biggest personal lesson you learned during 2021?

I have learned to appreciate my blessings, especially my family and their support. I am also more mindful of the importance of maintaining my own health. If I won’t bother about my health, who else would?


Describe in 1-3 words how you feel going into 2022

Hopeful, positive and joyful.

Many thanks Melanie for this SYW post.

  1. What a sweet image! I love how colorful and cheerful that New Year’s wish is! Thank you so much Sadje for Sharing Your World! It is probably best to be pragmatic about what’s to come, all worrying is doing (at least for me) is giving me indigestion! You have a very bright way of looking at things, and I think being upbeat and spreading kindness is sorely needed in these days, so thank you for that too! Have a wonderful week with a very Happy New Year at the end there! 🤗🥰

    1. Thanks Melanie for your kind comment. I used to be a big worrier but thankfully I am cured of doing that for it only makes matters worse. I hope and wishes that the new year will be better for us all. Amen. Thanks again

    1. You’ve said it so perfectly Patricia. Any day that we wake up to be able to face the world is a good day. And if we can do some good in that day, it’s even better.
