Taking a Little of My Own (Published!) Advice

I'm please to announce the publication of The Foreign Service Companion: Moving Your Household Without Losing Your Mind (Volume 1), (affiliate link) by many contributors, including me! I have an essay in the book about how to keep up with your workout routine in the middle of transition time. It's something I certainly struggle with but also something I try to make the best of. In fact, for a little inspiration I re-read my essay this morning. We are coming up on a move in two months but my half-marathon training starts in one month. I have to manage both. My definition of success is that anything that is not a disaster will be acceptable. Basically, I need to alive on race day, which isn't until September.

The book includes full chapters, short essays, and anecdotes by Foreign Service members and family members on how to handle all aspects of your move, whether your transitioning from the United States to abroad or vice versa. We've all been there and we want to help others who are facing these challenges. The book is now available on Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle editions.

Have fun with your next move! Remember, you're not alone.
