Manage episode 355377118 series 3390642
Hey sweet sister. Today we’re talking about how to survive and actually thrive through the craziness that comes with being a military family.
Specifically, 10 tips to have a less stressful, easier move.
Picking up and moving our families every couple years is not for the faint of heart. But it’s our life in the military. And we often don’t have any choice or control over it.
In just this year we have 3 moves. In our almost 5 years of marriage 2.5 years have been spent apart due to military demands.
So you’re in the thick of a big move, preparing for your next PCS, or navigating the ups and downs of military life, I see you, and this episode is for you.
The constant unpredictability & instability of our day to day lives in the military, the long distance & time apart from our spouse and/or kids, the frequent uprooting of our families & being far from our support systems or having to rebuild our village every time, it can wear on us and bring with it a whole lot of stress & anxieties.
One of the biggest things that has weighed on me through our time in the Army is the worry that my family is bearing the cost of my service. Worrying whether they’re going to be ok, worrying the military won’t take care of our family. Feeling constantly torn apart, & not sure how it’s all going to work out.
So let’s talk about the hard, and I’m going to give you 10 tips to navigate these challenging seasons. I pray this blesses you, and helps you manage the stress & chaos with more peace and grace.
