I didn’t want to go. I didn’t believe it would work. I didn’t think I would get anything out of it….
I was still reeling from the emotional turmoil that stemmed from the end of a long term relationship. My feelings were raw, my attitude negative and my hopes for the future bleak.
But, I went anyway – encouraged by friends and family members who believed that a fresh start would do me good. I, however, was not convinced.
As much as I hate to be wrong (and I REALLY hate to be wrong)….. I was. I am telling you that I experienced a complete metamorphosis with Lauren and the other women who were part of our group. I truly wish that my words could adequately give justice to the incredible transformation that occurred during the Man Magnet Makeover weekend. Let me just say that it was an amazing three days filled with laughs, insight, bonding, tears and epiphanies!
First of all, Lauren is an absolute genius when it comes to being able to read human emotions. Honestly, I don’t know how she does it! She listens, pauses, reflects, and then is able to perfectly pinpoint both the past difficulties to be overcome and the future path that will help us find love. And, she “gets” that we don’t all seek the same love – that we are all unique and have our own ideals of what constitutes a perfect match. She is non judgmental, always positive, ever insightful. An amazing guide along the path to help us find happiness.
After an exhausting yet fulfilling three days, I returned home with a new outlook, a positive view of the future, and a slew of new friends with whom I felt a true bond. Ready to move forward toward finding joy, love and happiness. And I will say this, at 55 – I have NEVER felt more confident, more positive, or more optimistic about what the future holds for me. And there is no doubt, that I absolutely, 100% credit Lauren and the Man Magnet Makeover Weekend for lighting that spark in me.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
