2 Lessons Single Women Over 40 Can Learn From Oprah
We can learn a lot from Oprah, including how to be our best, most authentic selves.

Yes, Oprah’s shows were poignant and life changing. But if you look past the content, I hope you can seen what I’ve seen: a highly complex and imperfect woman showing us that it’s okay to be our true selves, love openly and expect to be loved in return.

My career and my passion is helping single women over 40 who are looking for love find hope and then find him. The majority of women I support struggle with feelings of inadequacy. They’ve attached themselves to the belief that their imperfection somehow makes them unworthy of admiration and love.

Ladies: Oprah has been proving to us for years that as long as you are being real and trying to be your best you are beautiful, you are worthy and your story has significance. That’s a lesson that I hope you have learned from her.

If you need a mirror held up to your beautiful self or you need a cheerleader – and we all do at times – then reach out. That’s what coaches like me are here for, as well the Oprah’s of the world, your friends and your loved ones.

That’s the second lesson we can learn from her; especially single women in their 45s, 50s and beyond who tend to struggle with asking for help. By proudly inviting support from experts like Maya Angelou and Suze Orman, as well as from scores of everyday people, Oprah shows us that our power is not in doing it alone. Our power is in asking for a compassionate guiding hand to help us live our best lives possible.
