A motivational speaker/coach is proof that God is still in the business of answering prayers and that no woman is too old for marriage.

Sharing her story on Instagram, Lisa Nichols popularly called Lisa2Motivate on Instagram revealed how she wanted for years for the right one and how lonely it was.

She was friends with her partner for 10 years before she finally said yes.

Read her full story below

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 sayin 🤷🏾‍♀️), but our friendship was paramount.

This week I excitedly stepped into my next season ……
I said yes YES!! 💍
