Lisa Nichols is an American motivational speaker who has used her life’s stories to inspire and encourage millions of people across the globe. The self motivated single mother and entrepreneur has announced her recent engagement and has shared her story with us, her fans and we are more than glad to reshare her story with all of our readers. The following is an account of her story:
“I’m 54 and I’ve never been married. I’ve previously opted out because it didn’t feel right. I’ve picked wrong and had to mend my heart. I’ve had to release the anger, forgive myself, and learn to trust Lisa’s picker and intuition again.
It’s been a looong journey of knowing that I’m in the right place, focusing on the right things, even when I’m doing it all alone…. year after year.
I’ve had lonely days and lonelier nights but I refused to settle for momentary satisfaction and the management of the optics of my life or the filtered image of what others may want to see.
My journey has not been easy at times but it has been worth it.
I unapologetically own my seasons of parenting, being single, healing, developing, growing, and now love.
After 10 years of Marcellus being my friend, listening to me as I made my way through single parenting (and CEOing), his steady friendship helped me navigate through broken hearts and challenging business moments. He was my cheerleader from the sidelines each time I chose myself when a relationship didn’t feel right or I doubted the next big move in my career. He has always been my good friend with no strings attached and no agenda. Little did I know back then, that I was sharing my heart, my healing and my aspirations, with my soulmate. He was just a sweet “earth angel” that God blessed me with as a friend. Now don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t blind to how Fine he was (I’m jus saying), but our friendship was paramount.
This week I excitedly stepped into my next season. I said yes YES!!
