When we asked our SpouseBuzz readers about the one thing that would make their military life better, none of them mentioned having a ceremony “ending” the war in Afghanistan. (Read about how it ain’t 'over' when your partner is still deploying here.)
Instead, our readers overwhelmingly said that the one thing they know they need to do to make their military life better was to work on their own careers.
That makes good sense. Whether you are working full-time, part-time, self-employed or a Stay At Home Parent with a little ambition on the bubble, moving your career forward really does contribute to your happiness. And, let's face it, when the spouse is happier, the whole military family is happier.
To support you in your efforts, we put together a few quotes to motivate and inspire you on the gray days to come. We hope you will share your own favorite quotes with us on Pinterest by pinning to our inspirational group board! If you're interested in joining the board, just email us a request with your user name and the email address associated with your account. We are excited to pin with you!

"Your work is going to fill a large part of you life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know it when you find it." Steve Jobs.
