MILITARY WIFE LIFE: LET’S DO THIS TOGETHER

I’m Beck, and I’ve been living this oh-so-complicated but beautiful life for 17 years.

Yep, you heard me. 17 years of packing and unpacking, leaving friends and making friends, living with my military guy and living apart. 17 years of all the ups and downs and crazy turns that is military life.

Some of you might have been doing this for longer, or some of you might have just started but I’m sure that, like me, you’ve probably had times when you’ve felt disconnected and you’ve wondered how long you could ‘do’ all the things. ALL. THE. THINGS.

Maybe you’ve given up on self-care because you have so much to do and putting yourself anywhere NEAR the top feels selfish.

Maybe you feel like you are going through the motions to keep your life and your house and your children and your pets and your bills and your job and absolutely everything else in motion while your partner is deployed or working long hours or just in the thick of what is required as a military member.

Maybe you’re holding on by your fingernails.

I WANT MILITARY WIFE LIFE TO FEEL LIKE HOME

Home is a funny concept when you’re a Military spouse! Home IS where you make it and I want MWL to be your spiritual home — not in a woo-woo way — but in a way where you are seen by others who GET IT. 

I want you to be seen by other people who get the disappointments and the excitements, the challenges and the celebrations. Heck, how good is it just to have others who get the military ‘lingo’?!

So I decided to create what I needed so we can all live here: a place to connect other Military Wives. A place to tell their stories. A place I STILL need while I continue living Military Wife Life. I wanted a place where I and all of you could feel like you belonged, a community.

LET’S DO THIS

HOW CAN WE CONNECT?

I TRULY want us to connect with and acknowledge each other in an online movement. Here’s how:

  • Our online communities – including Facebook, Instagram and this website — where you can connect with other military spouses.
  • The Military Wife Life Podcast – where I tell YOUR stories!
  • Lots of Love boxes – Where you can send self-care love bombs (aka a box of cool FREE stuff) to other military spouses who may need a ‘boost’ and a reminder that this online community has their back.

 

SO, HELLO, YOU! JOIN US!

I want the MWL community to be your people, and to connect you to your people.

Because we get it, we get you.
