New Website Up

I am happy to announce my new website is up and running and I will be blogging over there very soon. You will also notice the name change.  After eight years, my partner and I got married in Washington and I have taken her name.

I look forward to sharing my new journey with you.  As a life coach, my goal is to empower women to live rich, wild, and abundant lives.

See you over there!

Today is Day One

When I started this blog after returning home from an invaluable experience at Squam, I had no idea what direction it may take me.  I knew it would be that silent accountability vehicle for a life in which I was searching.  An indigo life: rich, wild and abundant.  

Little did I know that this little blog of mine would lead me to that exact life?  My intention was to chronicle but the result was change.  I feel a real sense of tribe whereas I didn’t before.  My life is rich in relationships, wildly fun, and abundantly blessed.  It took surveying the foundation of everything I believed and noticing it was rocky at best.  I have spent this time really looking at what it means to have an indigo life and making sure I was living it. 
An indigo life is authentic, full of gratitude, and at peace.  Yet, while I was starting to truly live it, there was still a piece missing.  What kept gnawing at me was the question how can I help you find your indigo life beyond my words?  I figured it out; life coach! 
For the past five months I have been training under Martha Beck and her team to be a life coach.  Martha’s live it to give approach has been so effective in my life, it is time to pay it forward.  I am thrilled to announce that I am now taking clients that want to live their own indigo life.  You already have the answers, you just can’t see them.  
If you or someone you know are searching for a change and feeling stuck, I can help.  I am offering a 6 week life coaching session at pre-certification* prices.  If you are interested or know of someone who might be, contact me at abullock26 {at} yahoo {dot} com.  I would love to work with you.
In the meantime, I am working on a new website and new blog!  Hold tight for details.

Which Direction to Travel?

Hello.  It's been a while.  How are you?  Better than I am, I hope.  My emotional compass has taken some strange twists and turns lately.  I've turned inward to balance myself which, as you can see from my absence here, makes me quiet.

Until I figure out the direction of this space, it will most likely be quiet.  I do not know yet if I will continue or move on.  Thank you for always dropping by to catch up on my chronicle and for leaving notes of encouragement.  Feel free to drop me a line to say hello if you wish.  abullock26 {at} yahoo {dot} com.  I would love to hear from you.

Jury Summons and Gardening

I spent most of Monday in a court room.  Jury summons.  I had to sit there an entire day while my fate was decided. They ask a menagerie of questions.  Gun control.  Immigration. Family violence.  I believe in the constitution and the right to a trial by jury, but there has to be a better way than stuffing seventy strangers into a room, smattering them with questions when really jurors 1-14 have already been chosen.  

I walked out beyond frustrated.  We live in a country that preaches democracy.  Other countries envy our system, but I feel like our system is broken and corrupt.  Just watch House of Cards on Netflix to understand what I mean.  As I sat there, wasting my time, I couldn't help but think, our democracy is a farce.  When we were released people clapped in the hall for not being chosen.  Disrespectful, yes, but did they feel frustrated because it was a waste of time, or because they too feel like the system is fixed?

By late afternoon I was free and with the thermometer pushing mid 70's I decided to work my frustration out with my hands in the garden with the last few hours of daylight.

No day in the garden is complete without my helper.  You know how it goes.  I plant the potatoes. She digs them up.  Annie enjoys being outside as much as I do.  In this moment she was listening to the neighbor kids walk by and wondering why I wouldn't let her out of the gate to greet them. 

We sowed lettuce in the raised bed, and started tomatoes, kale, spinach, and herbs in seed pots that will sprout in the warmth of the garage until April.  I am very thankful I have a garage with heat/AC so I don't have to worry about cat paws digging through seed pots in the house! 

It didn't take long to get over being discouraged.  A little sunshine, hands deep in the dirt, and dog kisses are good for the soul.  And sadly, I probably won't think about jury summons until next time I'm called to duty.
