Consistently finding employment is just one of many lifestyle challenges military spouses face. With frequent moves, the seemingly endless search to not only land a career, but to maintain and grow it, can be frustrating. In the job search, the advice “it’s all about who you know” is often tossed around as the secret key to landing a dream job. That somehow, if only you could find the right person with the golden ticket, all of your employment wishes would come true. Granted, sometimes that does happen, but there’s actually a second part of the equation that is rarely mentioned. It’s not who you know. . . it’s who knows you. Be confident, know your strengths and weaknesses, hold your head high, and smile. Believe in yourself and you are halfway there.
Hey mama. I know that feeling. That pit in your stomach when you feel like you're not doing enough. The worry that comes with parenting solo. The tight-rope you're walking to keep your other half present while not making everyone sad. The anxiety that comes with looking at the Pinterest perfect parties, knowing that you just can't pull it off this year (or probably next if you're being honest with yourself). I know that feeling ... Exhausted, stressed, feeling like you're doing everything you can just to keep it together. And we're here to tell you: Your best is enough. Hug a little tighter, hold on a little longer. That will always be enough. MilSpouseFest: the community you need to encourage you through military life.
