Let’s face it, difficult times are a part of life. No matter what your age, there will always be some challenges to face and obstacles to overcome. But with these challenges come opportunities—opportunities to develop and grow.
For instance, in our 20s we struggle to find our place in the world and establish a fulfilling career and relationship. In our 30s and 40s, women in particular are often faced with juggling work, family demands, and finding time to take care of ourselves.
