France: New Writer Interview – Marie Kléber

France: New Writer Interview – Marie Kléber

Interview pic: FranceWhere in the world do you live? And, are you from there?

I live in Paris. I am from France, Nantes, on the west coast. I lived in Dublin, Ireland, for a couple of years before coming back home.

What language(s) do you speak?

I speak French and English. I know a bit of Spanish and Arabic.

 When did you first become a mother (year/age)?

Two years ago, on Valentine’s Day I gave birth to my baby boy! I was 33.

Are you a stay-at-home mom or do you work?

I thought I could stay home and look after my child. But then life decided otherwise, and I had to come back to France and search for a job. I found an Executive Assistant position and I can say now that I am happy to be a working mum, even if sometimes it’s a bit tough to manage it all.

Why do you blog/write?

I blog to share and learn, to heal. Writing is my best medicine. It gives me a place to be me and to rejoice with others.

I blog to remember what happens in life, how I overcome challenges, to remember the joy and the happy moments, life’s little treasures.

What makes you unique as a mother?

I am a free spirit. I don’t follow any rules. I find here and there the wisdom I need to raise my kid. I am only unique because my kid is unique. But I am no better than any other mum. Each mum is unique in a way.

I am learning every day. I can say my child is my best teacher. I am rebuilding myself with him, much stronger every day.

What do you view as the challenges of raising a child in today’s world?

Being a single mum is a choice I made because married life was becoming a nightmare. I saved our lives by leaving. But some days I find it challenging to raise my kid on my own. I wish to teach him respect, tolerance, peace and confidence. I wish him to be free and in peace. But the outside world frightens me a lot. There is much craziness around. And I try as much as possible to focus on the beauty of creation and the little things that make a difference, to surround ourselves with love and compassion, empathy and positive people.

 How did you find World Moms Blog?

I met Salma when I started blogging. And she was such an inspiration to me that we became friends. She’s been writing for World Moms Blog for a while. My first encounter with the website was through her. And I found there the empowerment I was looking for, a community of women sharing and caring for one another.
