89.A mindset shift made all the difference

In this week's podcast episode, I talk to RAAF spouse Nicole about why a mindset shift has totally changed the way she experiences defence life. 


Nicole and I also talk about;

  • Meeting her now Husband while he was studying at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA)
  • Realising that the member doesn't just sign up for a job but a lifestyle
  • Moving to Newcastle for her husbands first posting and not being formally recognised as a couple
  • Trying to find housing, work and friends while not yet being entitled to any support
  • Feeling like she didn't fit and questioning whether the defence lifestyle was for her
  • Deciding to go forward with a different mindset to help her see the positives
  • Why having regular check-ins on her mental health is so important 
  • What it's like to live on base in Richmond NSW and why it is a tick on her defence bucket list
  • Why signing up for spouse related activities, even if they aren't your thing, can lead to great friendships
