We mainly discussed her new book Struggle: the surprising truth, beauty and opportunity hidden in life’s sh*ttier moments:
In a world that’s obsessed with fast hacks, quick wins, and Instagram-perfection, struggle has become a taboo. A sign that something’s gone horribly wrong.
But what if we’ve got it all wrong about getting it wrong?
What if struggle isn’t a battle to fight, a trap to avoid, or a sign of weakness?
What if struggle is precisely where the magic happens – where we do our best, most important work?
With everyday observations and practical encouragement, Grace’s new book Struggle, shines a surprising new light on the truth, beauty and opportunity hidden in life’s shittier moments.
