You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. – C.S. Lewis
As 2012 winds down to a close, many Americans will begin to think about their New Year Resolutions. These goals might include things like: take a tropical vacation, read a book a week, and get fit. Military spouses might prefer to ditch the term New Year Resolution and opt instead for setting Deployment Goals. I actually have more friends with their husbands gone right now than home. Maybe that is you. Maybe you find yourself not interested in New Year Resolutions at all, but the idea of setting a few Deployment Goals peaks your interest.
Here are some tips to setting some Deployment Goals:
If this New Year is bringing with it a new deployment, remember one of the ways to make the most of this time apart is to have goals. You'll want plenty of things to keep you busy, you'll also want things to look forward to, things to make you smile, things that will challenge you and things that will make you proud once accomplished.
Our loved ones have a mission to fulfill when they are deployed. Make your deployment goals your mission. By having your own goals and accomplishing them, you'll both have an even sweeter Homecoming.
