THE INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION YOU NEED TO TURN OFF AUTO-PILOT & LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH PURPOSE.


msws-girl-ipad-windowseat.jpg

There’s a saying by Robert Byrne that goes something like this:

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”

But, how exactly can you achieve that?

After all, we live in a fast-paced world riddled with day-to-day distractions and demands.

  • Incoming texts and emails for the next to-do or request.

  • Calendar alerts on upcoming appointments, school pickups, or extracurricular functions.

  • Countdown app notifications that make you realize all you haven’t gotten done, but “need” to do before homecoming day arrives.


And, before you know it, just for the mere pleasure of checking things off your list, you end up moving through life at rapid speed while losing sight of your own needs, passions, and beliefs—the things that make you feel most alive.
Like a hamster spinning in its wheel, you feel you’re going nowhere, fast.
You go around and around in circles as you continuously equate doing more with being more.

You’ll be a better spouse, parent, friend, or overall human being if you tackle everything that’s on your plate and then some.

But, as a past, present, or future military spouse who regularly focuses on the needs of others, this way of thinking does not do your life justice!

That “good enough” feeling can only be found from within.

So, what do you say we stop rushing through the day-to-day and instead…

STOP & SMELL THE ROSES. Go beyond the busy, pulling from the depths of our hearts, to unveil how our choices—from how we choose to love, grow, spend, eat, and move—are connected to a greater sense of purpose.

Set aside some “You” time—whether at home or on-the-go—over the course of six days and get ready to take charge of your life.

The world needs you to show up being nothing but your most fulfilled self!


Eager to turn off auto-pilot & live a more purpose-driven life?


WHAT EXACTLY IS THE MILITARY SPOUSE WELLNESS SUMMIT?

2.jpeg

Here at InDependent, we’re military spouses just like you. And, we know how challenging this life can be!

From countless moves, giving up careers, long-term separations, and conquering life overseas, the idea of conscientiously making time for yourself might seem nearly impossible.

That’s why we created the Military Spouse Wellness Summit.

We’re going on our fourth year of hosting a week-long virtual retreat for military spouses. Yes, past, present, and future!

We’re able to gather together—near or far, within the U.S. or overseas—from the comforts of our home, car, or office and unplug from the hustle and bustle. That way, we can truly revel in this opportunity to listen and learn from wellness experts who are seriously passionate about helping you set intentions to move forward into living life with purpose.

Did we mention the retreat is 100% virtual? Yes, check. But, we can’t celebrate that fact enough because you can sit back and relax thanks to:

No travel. No missed work. No childcare.

So, block off some time within your busy calendar, find a happy place to retreat to, and join more than 1,300 military spouses for a week that’s bound to leave you feeling inspired, connected, and ready to live a purposeful life.

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT. READ WHAT PAST ATTENDEES HAVE TO SAY!

Honestly, you ladies know how to put on a good party! I loved the interviews, but my favorite part was the All-Access FB group where I could interact with the participants and the organizers. Truly, this was a life-changing experience and made me change the way I think about my health and wellness.
— Wendy, US Navy Spouse
Went above and beyond what I wanted for wellness guidance. Left each message feeling renewed and a more positive outlook on my situation.
— Lauren, US Air Force Spouse
Y’all couldn’t have made it easier or more accessible if you tried. Even if someone could only pick a couple of the topics that resonated with them to listen to, they’d still go away with that knowledge.
— JESSICA, US NAVY SPOUSE

Really, what are you waiting for?

In 2013, five military spouses identified a need within the community for a tailored social wellness program that offered a sense of inclusion for spouses of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. Thus, InDependent came to fruition.

Fast-forward to today, having merged with The Other Side of Service (OSS) to become a stand-alone 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we’re able to continue our mission with events like MSWS to:

make wellness accessible and create opportunities for all military spouses to connect for friendship, accountability, and inspiration.

 

Your life is ready for this, friend.
