42 is a bit of a tough age.


You’re right in the middle of things. 


You’ve probably still got some kids at home but you’re on your way to becoming an empty nester. 


You’re at the midpoint of your career. 


You’re also right at the beginning of the time frame when most people have a midlife crisis.


All of this makes being 42 an interesting season of life. Today, I want to give you some practical tips on how to navigate it.
