Simply Hashing – Bhimdhunga, Kathmandu


My favorite thing to do in Nepal thus far has been hashing.  It has been a way to experience different parts of life in this country and only needing to drive just outside of the valley.  I have never ran a hash because I enjoy having the opportunity to slowly pass through little villages, talking to some locals and snapping photos snippets of their daily lives.

Just like people everywhere, they are caught up with what is going on directly in their world.  However, unlike many people in many places it does not involve television, cell phones or for that matter, nearly any form of technology.  Their lives are hard and simple at the same time.  No matter what though, as soon as you give them a smile and a namaste… they will return the same to you with their sweet nature showing through.  I hope you enjoy.

31 Days of Randomness- Personal Inspiration 8 – Mocking Pressure and a Happy Day

In continuation of my 31 days of randomness – Day – Mocking Pressure – Happy

There is nothing that makes me happier than to be able to multi-task. Getting more than one thing done at a time and finishing early is one of the true joys in my life. So in honor of this weeks Daily Press Weekly Photo Challenge Happy, I will be combining my 8th day of staying on topic with Mocking Pressure which also makes me happy. I hope you enjoy.

“The only pressure I’m under is the pressure I’ve put on myself.” -Mark Messier

There are a lot of things we can’t control in life–dramas that will unfold around us, circumstances that will seem overwhelming, fires that appear impossible to put out. We can’t ever stay on top of everything, but it gets a lot easier if we remember to breathe and take it all one step at a time.

We don’t need to solve everything right now. We don’t need to take responsibility for fixing everyone’s problems. We also don’t need to have all the answers. We just need to do what we can and then let ourselves recharge until it’s time to do again.
