For a while now, there have been two things that have been weighing on my mind that I want to talk about in length... and truth is, I could probably write a book about them I have so much to say on the subjects. BUT I want them on my blog.
So, I came up with this idea. I am going to do a series of articles on Mondays and Fridays for awhile until I exhaust the subjects, and I invite you to join in! Here are the topics:
You may be thinking, well those are kind of random things... so I want to explain myself:
First off, Military Monday. Why? Just to get things straight, I am not going to just sit here and tell stories of my husband and his Army buddies... Who cares, right? Well, it so happens that I get emails all the time from other wives and/or mother's of soldiers that have lots of questions. I get asked the same questions all the time, so this is where I am going to answer them! On Monday. One or two questions at a time...
Second, friendship. Why that? Well, I can't tell you how many times I see or hear people complaining about making friends, how to keep them, etc, etc. This day and age we spend do much time doing electronic socializing that we sometimes have a hard time doing it face to face, person to person. So I feel "inspired" to share a few tips on how not only to make friends and keep them, but how to BE a friend.
Now, I am not going to take all the glory (I know, so unlike me!) so I am going to let EVERYONE who wants to participate in this do so. Every Monday and Friday my post will include a button link that anyone can put on their blog that day and share their own feelings on military life and friendship. Then I invite you to come back and add a comment on my post with your post link so we can all share.
My goal is to spread some friendship, knowledge, tips, and a positive attitude that we can be a part of. This world, and especially the internet can be so focused on negativity and lies that can really bring us down. These next couple months, I want to focus on some positive things whether it's to do with the military or friendship -- I want to help those out there who may need a shove in the right direction, and I want to learn from YOU on how you do it too!
So don't forget to stop by tomorrow for my first article on Military Monday!
