2021 Week 49 Update

It’s just a couple of weeks till the end of the year. I think we are all waiting to see if 2022 is better than the last two years.

After posting last week’s update I realised I had not updated my walking stats. So I am in the last province of Myanmar before I hit India’s borders. I will most likely not hit the borders by the end of the year but will do so in early January.

This past week has been all about doctor visits for us. GG had an ultrasound which showed up as completely normal, so all her issues are because of her thyroid. So we are still on medication and hope by the next review, she will have better results.

I also had to get a tooth extracted this week because it was quite decayed. I have always prided on having excellent teeth and having the dentist tell me that it is very decayed and even a root canal may not save it was very hard. It took me a while to digest the fact before I could sign the waivers for the extraction.

Today’s quote comes to us from Rhonda Byrne, an Australian television writer and producer, whose best selling book, The Secret and then the film based on the book is based on the law of attraction. She tells us to turn every situation in life into a positive one. This is akin to saying the glass is half full instead of half empty where we look at the positive aspect of a situation and perceive life through an optimistic lens instead of being pessimistic.

And after flipping and flopping, as of this morning, travellers from Singapore need not spend time in a home quarantine when they go to India. So this is really good news for all those wanting to visit family. I am seriously considering making a short trip to Mumbai early next year, and hope and pray that things stay the same, or become better and not take a turn for the worse.

And with that, stay safe, stay masked and get vaccinated!
