Hello there, I’m Bron! A warm welcome to my slightly revamped blog space. After spending 10 years in Sydney, my husband and I and our two kids relocated to rural New South Wales, Australia in a classic ‘tree-change’. Rural living has its challenges but we enjoy it!
In addition to wife and mother I am a veggie-growing, slow/simple living, book-loving, introspective, psychologist who follows and finds comfort in Christ. (In personality terms I am INFJ all over – for those who enjoy a Myers-Briggs perspective).
I began this blog nearly three years ago in an effort to get feelings and thoughts out of my head and onto paper, so to speak. It turned out I thoroughly enjoyed the outlet – a quiet and peaceful place to reflect and share. I also appreciated many a kind comment from thoughtful readers during what turned out to be a challenging year or so.
After over a years hiatus I am keen to return to posting here. I do not know yet exactly what direction the blog will take this time around, however, meaning and purpose have been especially on my mind lately and these words of Isaiah 43 shine like a beacon, optimising hope, beckoning the reader to be strong and take heart –
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness, and streams in the wasteland…”
Therefore the title of this new chapter, if you will, of myisleofserenity is ‘a new thing’ and I expect, that in addition to garden updates and the like, there will be many a post reflecting on the nature of hope; beautiful streams flowing through the wasteland.
Your respectful comments and discussion are very welcome and should you ever wish to make a private comment please feel free to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org. I do warn you however, that I am notoriously tardy when it comes to checking emails so please don’t be surprised if it takes me a while to reply. That said, I will be making a special effort to be more prompt in my replies, I promise!
Welcome again and happy reading!
