This week the kids are back to school and we are trying to get back to normal. I decided that the best way to feel like I was going to work as normal was to dress like I was going to work as normal.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have also streamlined my wardrobe and make up, so that if I pull something out of my closet I know that it fits and I will like it. I started looking at other plus-sized women who dress nicely and took my cues from their suggestions.
I felt good about myself everyday, and was not productive this week. All in all – I think this is a good tool to keep in my sanity toolbox.
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!
