“Rather than staying stuck, waiting for some future event or timing, waiting for ‘someday,’ waiting for deployment to be over, waiting for your spouse’s retirement, or waiting for someone else to do something, you enjoy a real sense of your authentic unique self actively engaged in life. That’s what brings the joy. Living NOW, not WHEN. It’s the process itself, embracing the journey, engaging in life.” – excerpted from Military Spouse Journey: Discover the Possibilities & Live Your Dreams
