Presenting at Military Coworking Network’s webinar yesterday to introduce our new programme aimed at partners and adult children of serving military personnel felt a little pressurised.
Yes, even I feel the pressure sometimes! But as I tell everyone I work with – pressure just shows how much we want something. As Will Smith the actor once said “success lies on the other side of fear”.
Whilst I’ve worn and been pre-judged by many labels in my dark and distant past, I have never experienced life as a partner or child of a military family. Whilst I don’t know about the constraints of living on a military base or in a military community, I can empathise with the invisibility many feel.
So logging on to the webinar thoughts for me amplified around:
Was I on the right track?
Would the content of the workshops devised meet their purpose?
At the end of an interactive 45 minute session, I was sure everything planned was spot on. Even more important, from the questions and interaction, I know the collaboration on Military Reboot will evolve still further for future programmes.
Knowing the gap I thought was there, really is there energises me no end. Receiving an email this morning from one of the delegates, Vikki, shows the very real need for Military Reboot. Having just completed her Masters on Applied Positive Psychology within the Military Family setting, her thoughts have inspired me even more!
Roll on January!
A huge thank you to Carolyn and Linzi for their help and support to get knowledge of Military Reboot to their membership.
If you are currently a partner or adult child of a serving Military Family and want to take part, contact me for more details or check out Military Coworking Network – their membership is free.
