This age is just the moment when you can do self-development, heal wounds and deal with problems that were not solved in the first half of life. Women aged 40 and over differ in characteristic confidence in themselves and their abilities. After all, they have already tempered their character and molded themselves in the heat of past battles with life circumstances, and now quite consciously feel themselves.

They already perfectly master their sixth sense, intuition, which for mere mortals is still a mystery (or lottery), they understand that life is love not only to others, but to oneself (perhaps even in the first place). Women after 40 skillfully combine the experience and attractiveness of youth, which allows them to effectively manage their lives and enjoy the subsequent years of their being in this world.

Thus, it turns out that when a woman reaches the age of 40, she begins to walk more confidently in life, feeling the hard ground under her feet and being able to control her emotions (maintain a balance of power). However, many women bake pies, prepare coffee and are constantly working around the house only because they need to do these things.
