Thank you, @bossandblossom, for this advice! It could not be more true! Is there a reason that you do not want to make changes? For me is was all fear based. Fear of failure, fear of people making fun, fear of disappointment, fear of annoying people, fear of being terrible… but guess what? Those fears GUARANTEED that I would fail, because I absolutely could not succeed if I never even tried! Living on the fact that in high school I was a decent dancer, or did well in Lit Class holds absolutely NO BEARING when I am in my 30s.
So, as I am not agree, I am now moving onward, and changing the things that do not make me happy!
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
