 Your relationship with your “self” is the most important relationship you will ever have…

As we move on from February, thoughts of Valentine’s Day and love surely came to mind. Most stores you go into had Valentine’s Day goods front and center. Now we have moved completely out of the winter holiday season and back into our routines. Some of you made resolutions for the year and are keeping up with them. Others may have had a harder time reaching their goals. If you are part of the latter group, it’s important to be gentle with yourself if you’ve lost track of a goal you wanted to reach. Allowing yourself quiet time can bring insights and new ideas about how to get back on track again. Reach out to a therapist, coach or trainer for help.

Now is a good time to take a closer look at relationships. It feels fitting to focus on relationships as we have moved on from Valentine’s Day. This day can bring up many issues for people about love – finding love, holding onto love, and love in the process of change. It’s also important to look at the most important relationship of all – the one you have with yourself.

Often when we think of being in a relationship, we think of romantic love. However, anyone we spend time with brings us into relationship with that person. In our everyday life we may find ourselves in relationship with coworkers, clients, friends, family members, mentors, neighbors, shop owners, trainers, and…ourselves. Your relationship with your “self” is the most important relationship you will ever have in your lifetime. How one comes to a place of comfort in one’s own skin is where so many people get stuck. It’s in our relations with other people that we learn the most about ourselves, and each person we meet gives us opportunities for growth and learning. Our relationships act as mirrors, reflecting back to us what we must see…and many times something we don’t want to see. I invite you to allow me to help you shine a light on your relationship with your “self” and help you to transform places of self-doubt and limiting beliefs.

Birthday and Breast Cancer Musings…

January 30th is my birthday and a good time for reflection of the past year. I am grateful, in a way that has no words, to be celebrating this birthday. I was on a physical and emotional roller coaster this past summer. I had breast cancer surgery on June 30, 2016, and made life changing decisions about ongoing treatments. The prognosis is excellent. I’m grateful for my amazing husband, family, friends and all of you…and have a renewed passion for supporting midlife singles, with dating and relationships. And…everyone has experienced cancer, whether it’s yourself or someone you know. Included in my coaching services, I empathetically coach singles, having gone through breast cancer, how to have a loving relationship with themselves and how to attract their perfect partner!

She's Getting Married!!

Hi Ronnie, 

“…Hope all is well with you and that your business and personal life are going well.  And thank you for 'Dating in the Wild!'

I'm excited to tell you that the man I met through the friend, that I invited to the Symphony, has proposed and we are engaged to get married on June 25th!  I have two sons, 20 and 24, and he has a son aged 22. All three are happy for us. My three sisters and two brothers-in-laws are flying out for the wedding. They tell me this is the happiest they've ever seen me in my life!... focusing on myself first made all the difference… it allowed me to relax, and present a happy, confident, strong, and fun side to myself.  

Excerpt from my email to you below from last July:

I spoke with a male friend of mine asking a suggestion of who I might invite to the Symphony last week. He gave me the phone number of his friend who I'd met on a couple of times at gatherings. We had a fantastic evening. He then reciprocated by inviting me to a 3rd of July invite with friends. We shall see where the relationship goes :-)” Carol C.

Loves How I Pretty Up


How much fun it was to have you come over and help me Finally Get Rid of the clothes that don't actually flatter me (I'm not a pack rat, I just didn't honestly have a fashion sense!) - and how empowering it was to go shopping that one time, and now I'm no longer intimidated to go on my own.... But.... I Just Gotta Capture for other doubting folks, this fashion stuff Works from the inside out! I felt different when I started wearing clothes that actually "perked me up!" I was happier, even on the funky, weird-o dates I went on. At least I was happy inside me, which is what counts most of all! And then…I met J. Yup, I was wearing a very adorable short summer dress at the time, Not At All what I would've worn a few months prior!! ;-)
We both knew there was chemistry…We continued to see each other as friends (really! no kissing - can you believe it, at our age?!), and 2 months later, we took it to the next level. And later, J. said to me how much he loved what I wore on our first date, and how beautifully I "pretty up!" (his words for dress up). He so enjoys seeing the fun I have when I put a few extra accessories together (in ways I Never Would've have known before Ronnie Joy!))
- Now, 6 months later, I continue to deepen my awe and appreciation about being "later in life" with this deliciously sweet, tender, present man, who loves how I "pretty up!" ;-)
