#TBT to the happiest I felt all year in 2019. Day 2 of Wanderlust in Whistler in August. Heather and I were granted scholarships and spent a day and a half stretching and smiling and meditating. It was the push I needed for the next leg of the marathon that has been this year.
As we head into the last month of 2019, I am hopeful that there will be more days like this. More days where the peace in my heart overwhelms me, and I relax into my life. More days where my gratitude overpowers the anxiety and pain. More days where the air is clean and my head is clear.
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!
