Back to reality from paradise

Hello everyone,

How are you all doing? Thank you for all the love you been sending me and thank you for wishes for my blog anniversary.

I am back in Sydney after our incredible holiday to New Zealand. I have so many things to share with you all but it will take me a while to get back to reality after such an amazing time we had in New Zealand. Until then I will let you enjoy some of the marvellous photos we captured on our trip.

I have to say things were on our side as we had good weather and a great time the whole time we were there. One of the highlights for this holiday was the view from our hotel room, which was just breathtaking. Here is a short video I took with my phone from the balcony of our room.

Leaving you with a special kiwi treat, I got for my friends and family :).

Nepaliaustralian turns 3!!!

I am very pleased to announce that it is the three-year anniversary of nepaliaustralian tomorrow. As I am going to be away for next few days, I thought I would write a post today.

Right now I am at airport waiting to board :). Feeling exited and happy to be away from daily life. I am already in relaxation mode.

It was on September 13th, 2011 that I first published my first post and to be honest it doesn’t feel that long ago. I guess this is how things work when you love what you are doing, time just flies and you look back and wonder how quick it went.

So many amazing things have happened in the past years because of this blog. Starting a blog was one of the best things I’ve ever done. This little blog has documented so many moments and thoughts of mine over the last three years that I am incredibly thankful to have a little space in this corner of the internet. For me, this space has and will always be a place where I can write and ramble to my heart’s content. Over the years I’ve found that with age, my memory fades and the words and photos here bring back to life little moments that would have been otherwise forgotten.

Overall it’s been a very rewarding, challenging and exciting learning curve to share these years with you and I wanted to thank you all deeply for all your interactions. Thank you for reading, thank you for caring, thank you for commenting, thank you for helping make this blog something I love writing. This blog has given me many good friends and I wanted to say thank you to all of you for your love and support along the way. I have the greatest readers, I really do and I am so appreciative of this great blogging community.

Today the blog has garnered 743 posts, 68 pages, have 7654 comments with 677,956 page views and 3455 followers as well as people from more than 220 countries visiting my blog!

So, Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! I promise to continue with this blog, on a frequent or semi-frequent basis as long as I am cable of writing my thoughts. Whether this is your first time visiting or you have been here since the beginning, I hope my posts go on to bring you much insight and joy.

I have a virtual cake for all to hand around! Cheers!!!

When I started this blog two years ago, I never thought I would last more than a couple of months. I was just writing to share my stories but was not sure anyone would ever read it so thank you to everyone for all the support that you have provided and now I am determined not to quit this blog for a long time to come.

Thank you for reading, thank you for caring, thank you for commenting, thank you for helping make this blog something I love writing.

Guest Post : Forward

Thank you Nelle for sharing her life with this wonderful post. You can check her blog on nellewrites. She is truly talented and amazing writer and I am eagerly waiting for the day when her book will be published.

Also I will like to congratulate her for upcoming award for her volunteerism at Planned Parenthood. You are a good example of how commitment and hard work pay off.

My appreciation and gratitude to Nepaliaustralian for her invite to write a guest post for her fascinating blog.  She takes us on such wonderful journeys and mini-tours with each new post, through two places and more what seem so exotic.

Fiction writing flows easy from my soul.  My own blog exists as a relief valve replete with short stories.  On occasion, my writing ventures into the personal, shared glimpses at the last dozen years.  I cannot take you all on a tour of wondrous places, so the logical writing for this guest post flays open part of my life and exposes a path fraught with experiences I care not to repeat.

Sometime just short of fifty-eight years ago, a physician declared me male at birth.  Gender assumptions ruled, through childhood, adolescence, and decades of adulthood.  One big caveat occurred in 1960, year America elected John F Kennedy president.  My gender exploration as a six year old earned a declarative statement from my father.  “You’re sick.”

So I believed, through the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and three quarters of the 1990s. What ensued I’ll truncate and spare much detail.  Married, parent, businessowner, these descriptive terms of my life collided with jumbled works within beginning in the late 1990s.  Gender pressure ratcheted to an unholy level.  It worked over my ability to function, a steady slide into oblivion, to the detriment of all around me.

The worst of it fell within a thirty-month window, 2001 through 2003.  I crossed gender lines nine years ago, and in 2008, faced an expected indictment that led to a two-year sentence and twenty-one months served in a federal prison camp, from June 2009 to my release in March 2011.

The dysfunction would not define my life.  Eight years ago, I pulled myself together, driven by some inner will to overcome and rebuild.  It required fighting through severe depression.  It meant re-commitment to personal and work ethics.  Over the ensuing four and a half years as a state employee, I rebuilt integrity lost in those thirty months, manifested in my commitment to each claimant and in distinguished service to my employer.

People fall into horrid circumstance.  Sometimes we act in irrational ways or shut down when faced with unimaginable pressure.  If one stumbles as I did, don’t accept it.  Strive for better.

Don’t stay down.  Don’t accept failure.  Learn from the adversity.  Get back up and dust off.  Learn from weaknesses and overcome them.  Commit to the truth no matter if it carries adverse consequences.  Commit to make amends, to rebuild and move forward.  And after, consider precious rebuilt integrity.

I’m a student, again.  I’m a Planned Parenthood volunteer, less than two weeks from receiving an unexpected state award honouring my volunteerism.  I’m a writer, new, four years into the creative path after a lifetime of business writing.  My first novel, now in its eighth edit nears an end.  I anticipate at least two more edits before the agent process begins.

Regrets?  Many.  Guilt?  Much.  Stronger?  🙂

I am a Published writer now :)

Before I started this blog I never thought I could really write. I have always loved to read and write but never had the courage to share my writing. When I was in school, I used to keep a diary but I never shared that with anyone. Before I left for Australia, I burned them all, no idea why but I have only one of the many diaries that I used to keep, with me now.

When I first started writing this blog, I didn’t know if anyone would ever read what I wrote. After reading lots of blogs, I felt like I wanted to share my thoughts and feeling as well. But I wasn’t sure if anyone else would ever read it. I really need to thank my husband who encouraged me to write and told me, “You just write and see how things go.”

And I am glad I listened to him. Now I write regularly and it helps me to be happy and relaxed. I have formed lots of friendship through blogging and there are people who read what I write. Thanks everyone for following and reading my blog because without all of you I could never have continued.

Anyway, at the end of last year, +977 ( a Nepalese Lifestyle Magazine in Australia) contacted me to write an article for their magazine that they were planning to publish. +977 is the country code to call Nepal from overseas, in case you are wondering what the name of the magazine stands for. They found me through my blog and contacted me. I wrote an article and submitted it to them.

After a while, they contacted me again and asked me if I would be happy to get more involved in the magazine. So we did, both me and my husband, became part of the magazine as we love to be creative. We worked for the magazine along with other members of the team and got the magazine out on the market from the vision board.

To cut the long story short after a few months of hard work, +977 magazines is out in the market and YES I AM A PUBLISED WRITER NOW.

Apart from the initial article, I did a cover story with my friend Mingma from iScribble as well as I did an article on Revolution Radio. Of course as you all know I am into fashion, so there is a piece about it as well. Here are my published articles. Please let me know what you think about them. I will upload the full articles soon.

Thank you once again everyone for all the support. Please support the magazine by liking their Facebook page.
