85- Considering a Curtailment

Hear from two long-time EFMs about the emotional and big-picture considerations when deciding to leave post early. Family, support, work/life balance, career opportunities, and expectations from others are all part of the puzzle in making these decisions.

86- Does EFM= Exhaustion, Burden & Sacrifice while the DH gets to have all the fun?

A personal EFM discussion for all of us in the trailing spouse community. When we sign on for this lifestyle and work- there is a designated role for the direct hire spouse. The role of the eligible family member is less clear and often carries an unexpected Mental Load...and that can get heavy.

Jennie and Angi share their encounters with learning how to EFM and what might help ease some of the challenges many of us are facing.

Let's start associating EFM with Expansive Freedom in Movement or Exceptionally Fantastic Mindset.
