My family recently received orders for the next two years in our current location. At first I was ecstatic! No need to pack, no need to make new friends, or get to know a whole new town.

While a move is tough, it forces you to grow as a person, pare down your belongings, offers an opportunity for a fresh start and could mean the chance to be stationed with your battle buddies you were separated from since the last move.
I realized I was getting lazy at our current duty station. We have accumulated more belongings than we need and I had not stepped out of my comfort zone to try new places or meet new people in too long. So here are three things I am going to focus on during my pretend PCS.
