Happy Holidays & A Challenge

Hi everyone! Richa here. Happy holidays to you all! Hope your year is winding down smoothly. Things have been good on my end, I recently published an article on how I think Nepal’s fuel crisis is affecting women and children. Read it here and let me know what you think.  It’s been a month since I have returned from Nepal, I am searching for a new job which can be stressful at times. However, I am trying to enjoy this free time by reading, writing, and hanging out with loved ones.

So as the new year approaches us, let’s all reflect on our year and think about the upcoming one. I can’t believe it’s already 2016! I know everyone is saying that, but dang, this year really went by quickly.

I found this image on Twitter, it’s called the 30 Day Minimalism Challenge. Not sure who originally created it, but this has inspired me to make them my new year goals. I am going to start it on January 1st, 2016. I am not sure how I will do, but I am committed to at least attempting them wholeheartedly. Will you join me?


Nepali Chhori has had another year of great entries, our focus is to be more regular in the upcoming year and bring more interesting posts. Stay tuned! Once again, HAPPY HOLIDAYS! We are thankful for your support!

    No! I won’t join you! It feels terribly overwhelming to just read the list, much less hold myself to that standard. I’m going to be gentle with myself ( and hopefully with others!) as I enter into 2016!! I invite you to join me in “gentling”!! That’s what I’ve learned in my almost 62 years. Love you lots!!

    • You are so right! I am hard on myself sometimes, but I don’t think I push myself enough either. I am so quick to give up things become uncomfortable . I think this challenge will help me learn more discipline. 🙂

  2. Is it a co-incidence that I have been looking up a lot on minimalism lately? 🙂

    I had seen the picture too, but then I realized I pretty much am already a minimalist, in terms of the stuff I own at least. I have one red lipstick, one mascara, one pair of heels etc. But what was becoming a problem to me was clothes shopping. When I moved to Poland from Finland, I was overwhelmed with the options and affordability here in fashion. So I started going to the malls for no particular reason and found myself impulse shopping very often. It’s been almost four months since I have kept my personal promise of not buying any new things, except the essentials and gifts to friends 🙂 I will continue as long as I can, and buy something only when I love something or truly need it. The next thing I have to drastically change is eating out excessively..

    Good luck on your plan, the 30 day challenge sounds difficult but I am sure it’s helpful in evaluating our priorities and learning a thing or two about our wants vs needs in this fast-paced world. Maybe I should think about it too..

    • Wow! That is really impressive! I have been trying to minimize all the things I have in my life. Have you read the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up?” Looks like you are doing a lot of what her advice is. I think as long things give you joy (i.e. eating out) then it is ok! Thanks for the positive wishes, only a few more days till I start! It’s going to be hard not looking at my computer though since I am searching for a new job.. 🙂
