You may or may not be familiar with Dr. Cindy Trimm, but she is one the most brilliant, most anointed Prophetesses on the planet.
Cindy is known for her bold, powerful voice, and for teaching women how to create a life of love, joy, happiness and wealth.
Inside the latest issue of “O” Magazine, Trimm speaks on her journey to marriage and how it took her 60-years to learn how to play the cards she was dealt.
“Growing up poor in Bermuda, Dr. Cindy Trimm-Tomlinson always loved the Cinderella story. But it wasn’t Prince Charming or the romantic ending that she admired; instead, it was the character’s determination that inspired Cindy the most. No matter what obstacles got in Cinderella’s way, she held out for her happily ever after. “We don’t weigh in on the cards we are dealt, it’s how we play them,” Cindy tells Oprahmag.com.
While chasing a major entrepreneurial career, Cindy told the magazine that she had problems with men, because she didn’t need them.
“I certainly had my share of dating. I dated a variety of personalities—great men—but most seemed a bit overwhelmed by a woman who knew who she was and did not necessarily need a man to make her feel complete,” remembers Cindy.
Cindy’s friends warned her that her career was getting in the way of love.
As the years passed, Cindy’s friends told her that her ambitions and success might be intimidating to potential romantic partners, but Cindy knew that anyone she was going to marry would need to be confident enough in who he was that he wouldn’t be threatened by her accomplishments. “I am a leader, and I knew I didn’t have to be dumbed down to be embraced by the man of my dreams,” says Cindy.
“It was then that Cindy started to consider that she might end up being single for the rest of her life. “The thought was haunting,” says Cindy. She wondered if she had been too picky in the past. But even with moments of self-doubt she says, “I couldn’t bring myself to settle, just for the sake of settling down.”
Fast forward to 2016, and Cindy, then age 58, got a call from a former colleague of hers, Russell Tomlinson. “I had a feeling that he was going to ask me on a date and the answer was absolutely no,” says Cindy, who made it a policy to never mix romantic and professional relationships. Despite her best intentions, Cindy found herself having deep and meaningful conversations with Russell. She finally agreed to a date. Then another, and then another. “We spent the first six months of dating just talking,” Cindy says, “Talking about values, about dreams, about goals, about finances.” Not only did Cindy love that they shared so many beliefs and career goals, she also felt right away that she could be completely herself with Russell. For Cindy, who had been totally independent person, it was an adjustment learning to share her life with someone else but she says, “He gave me the room to grow in that area—he’s both gentle and a gentleman.”One of Cindy’s biggest concerns about getting married was that it would interfere with her work goals and busy professional life. “I wanted to marry a person, not a project,” Cindy says. So when Russell proposed to Cindy, he chose a moment where she was completely in her element: on stage in front of hundreds of people at a conference in Bermuda. It was an easy yes. “People marry for different reasons,” says Cindy, but, “I wanted to grow old with this person.”
