When do you make the Command decision to retreat?
Is it before or after you pull the pin on the last grenade – a final act to say SCREW YOU!? Or rather is it more effective in the broader scope of operations to save some ammo as you regroup and plan a new strategy for winning the battle next time?
Jess over at Diary of a Mom recently pulled back. It was a true learning experience for me to watch someone I admire have that kind of courage and strength to say ENOUGH. For now.
It was good timing as I have recently been having similar conversations with myself over the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and HOW of trying to advocate while also being the wife and mother I need to be. And oh yeah – I’m supposed to juggle social relationships, too?
So in my own personal style, I WILL PULL THE PIN and toss out that last grenade before I go.
I will take some cover and enjoy my children, my amazing husband and just BE.
Lookout, TRICARE – I’m still aiming for better care for our kids!
