Hello! (don’t pronounce the H)
My name is Veronique, I am a French mum of two boys, and we live in London together with my husband.
Before I had kids, I used to work as a consultant for pollution prevention. My plan was to help the planet, save the world from the bad pollution, that kind of important stuff. I was not extremely successful, so I decided to… No, just kidding, I didn’t decide about anything. I just got pregnant. After my first son was born, there was no way I could go back to “normal” employment.
At some point I thought I should make something out of my guilt-for-whatever-I-was-not-doing-perfectly, shame, boredom, mental and physical exhaustion… However, I was not supposed to complain. That’s when I figured out that opening a blog, to spread my fake wisdom, was a good option to maintain my sanity.
I opened a blog in French (Maman Très Spirituelle), with articles and videos on how to be a good parent. Only very useful and very spiritual advice out there. One day I thought I could start to translate some of my very useful and very spiritual content in English. This is how Very Spiritual Mum was created, few months (years?) of procrastination later. Let’s see if my content is as very useful in English as it proved to not really be in French.
I also self-published a first book in French, Parfois l’Ange se tait. Can you tell I love writing?
Finally, I can say that motherhood allowed me to embrace my true self: an artist. Lol.
One funny thing is that the acronym of this blog, VSM, is the same as my initials. So I think this totally is a sign that I am following my life purpose. Lol again.
