The Lives Of Army Wives And Moving Around The Country

The lives of Army wives moving around the country can be very challenging, but it can also be very fun and exciting as well. The type of experiences you will have as an Army wife will likely depend on the way you view base transfers. If you keep an open mind and you maintain a positive and outgoing attitude throughout each move, you will likely have many experiences you can tell loved ones about for many years to come.


While the experience of being an Army wife can be quite difficult at times, there are certain mind sets you can use to make the process of moving around the country much easier to handle. By viewing your life as a constant adventure, or even viewing each move you make as a unique challenge, you will likely find you and your spouse handling moves with greater ease and even enjoying the experiences you have along the way.

By viewing the moves you make around the country, or even around the world, as an adventure, you will always approach each new city you move to with an open mind. With an open mind, you will be able to approach new social circles with a sociable attitude and you will find the entire adventure to be much more rewarding overall as a result.

As you move from one place to another, or as you move to a rather exotic location situated in the middle of nowhere, it can be very helpful to view your situation as a challenge that you must complete together. By viewing new and exciting bases as a challenge that you must overcome as a couple, you will not be discouraged at the thought of the unknown, but you will be encouraged to engage yourself in the local communities and become an active participant in the social circles that exist on the bases you are moving to.

The thought of meeting new people without having any friends to back you up as you attempt to enter a new area can seem frightening to some spouses though. If this is the type of feeling you experience when you think about attempting to enter local social scenes after moving, you should simply remind yourself that every other spouse you meet has likely already been through a similar experience.

For this reason, you can count on the friendliness of other spouses to help you adjust to your new surroundings and you will certainly have experiences your newfound acquaintances will be able to relate to as well.

At times, especially when a loved one is deployed, you will likely find yourself wondering whether or not you can manage the situation you have found yourself in. For this reason, you should always do your best to set goals for yourself and you should set goals for you and your husband as a couple. By setting goals for yourself, such as the goal of acquiring a great job, or the goal of meeting new friends, you will have a subject you can give your attention to while your spouse is away.

Although the lives of Army wives can be very challenging, it can also provide some of the most exciting and exhilarating experiences a spouse can have. By simply viewing each move you make as a brand new adventure, you will always overcome any fears you may be harboring and you will always have a wonderfully exciting experience that you will remember for many years to come.
