The year 2022 has come to an end. The year started on a good note where most of the people were vaccinated and the covid counts had also come down. Students started going to schools and colleges. It was great to meet people in person. Tourist places opened up and festivals were celebrated with full enthusiasm.
The pandemic years taught me nothing should be taken for granted. One should not leave anything for tomorrow. So I documented my bucket list for the first time. One of the wishes was to write a book. I started writing. It is very easy to start on something but maintaining consistency is a challenge. There were days when I was looking for an excuse to skip writing. Thanks to my mother who always motivated me to keep going. She would say “This is the best opportunity to write since you are at home”. It requires efforts to fulfill a wish. Finally I was able to accomplish that. I was able to find a very good guide through my publisher. The book “Genie without the Lamp” was completed and published in October. It was a great moment for me and my family.
We should not ignore the wishes that come to our hearts. It is a good practice to write them down. Sometimes they give direction to our lives. Writing this book helped me avoid all the negativity around because it kept me occupied. I thank my mother and sister for being with me throughout this journey. This is my best memory of 2022. I pray 2023 turns out to be even better.
