Episode 9 – Routines and Disciplines

Our last podcast gave you insight into Susan’s very difficult journey. She is quick to affirm that this was a rough road fashioned with an over-arching desire to move forward. But it wasn’t easy. Susan firmly believes that people do not have to get caught in a cycle of profound sadness and depression if they discover that there is more out there to live for. 

Even though there have been many dark days since her son and husband’s deaths, Susan decided early on that she was going to try to live her best possible life. She comes from a long line of resiliency and that pointed her to a “Chapter Two.”  One of the ways she made that happen was by planning ahead and forming routines and disciplines that kept her safe, secure and fulfilled.

Episode 8 – A Necessary Reflection

In all of our past podcasts, Susan Warner has talked about moving forward, not beyond, when you lose someone you  love.  To many of Susan’s followers, her confidence and desire to live the best possible life, may seem like she possesses an inner strength that they do not.  She stresses that never in this journey has it been entirely easy or uncomplicated.

It’s time that she talked about her past, and what it was like in the early days after the death of her son and then, soon after, the death of her husband. What was she thinking in those days, how did she feel, where did she go, how did she conduct herself? 

This information will give her loyal listeners a true understanding of who Susan is, her struggles and triumphs. This podcast will explain the past and give listeners a lens to the journey: the pain, the path to recovery from loss and her transformation.  It can serve as a road map to those that have endured and suddenly find themselves afloat alone.  This information can be an inspirational exploration to find contentment and personal happiness.

Episode 7 – Laugh At Yourself – It Is So Much Easier Than Crying

She says, “There are dark times and sad times, but, in wanting to go on, the revenge is to live my best life.” Susan comments, “I made the conscious decision to live and to move forward.” She knew there was another chapter, a right turn. Chapter 2.

Self-image, projection of one’s self and caring can promote better mental health. You get what you give and being your best person will promote better responses from the world at large. Smile, give directions, be aware of the person that you are. Take pride in conquering the challenges that make you more self assured, accomplished and comfortable.

Episode 6 – Who Zippers Your Dress?

Silver Lining.  Very few people who are widowed would ever admit that they can experience a new found independence in their solo life. Susan Warner talks about this repressed emotion because everyone needs to understand it’s quite normal to suddenly realize, “You answer to no one and you may be able to enjoy it. There is nothing to feel guilty about. This is all part of the healing process.”

Susan quickly points out that she would do anything to bring back her husband and live the life she had before, but she knows that’s not going to happen.  So now, she leads a life on her own terms. “I have loved and I have lost. I will do what I want, when I want, with whom I want.”

This episode is profound for both widowed and divorced people of any age. Susan leads you through a myriad of emotions that have a silver lining for those who want an independent, fuller, and self-reliant next chapter.

Episode 5 – Use Your Words

Susan opens up about the importance of conversation and verbal exchange in relationships over 50.  Not just the obvious, but talking about finances, friendships, likes and dislikes and even in the bedroom.  Dating after 50 does not need to be defined by texts and emails – in fact, she believes it is most successful when the lost art of communication is used.  Say what you mean and say what you want.

EPISODE 4 – “Blended Families” After 50

This episode discussing “blended families” is a “must listen” to anyone who is 50 years of age or older and is thinking about dating a person with adult children. Blending families with adult children is about acceptance, relationships and understanding.  It touches on respect, finances and abandoning preconceived notions of “evil stepparents” and embracing a parent’s happiness. Before you get in too deep, let me explain that this can add a complication to a relationship, and yet be rewarding and fulfilling with proper dialogue. From the onset of introduction, adult children play an important role-a thumbs up or down can seal the deal.

Episode 3 – Take Control Of Your Social Life

If you want to start dating in the digital age then consider embracing online dating apps. After persuasion from her daughter, Susan Warner signed up almost two years after her husband died. Although it wasn’t her move of choice, she understood the nuances and importance of dating online. You may get a few friends who are willing to make introductions, however, it will be difficult to depend on that to fill your social calendar.

The good news is that dating apps will give you the opportunity to explore a diverse group of potential matches. You will also be able to find possible partners who are interested in the things that are important to you. There will be eligible men to choose from, if you identify your own priorities and assess your desires. 

The apps are designed for singles to explore and have fun. Attitude is everything. You should embrace the process. Susan gives you the details that you need to know in this episode. All you have to do is click on.

Episode 2 – Trophy Wife Has A Whole New Meaning After 60

Listen to this.  Susan Warner defines “trophy wife” or “trophy girlfriend” with an entirely new spin. She believes men have evolved after 60 and approach trophy, not as the modelesque six-foot blonde, but as a woman on their arm that is smart, witty, well-read and/or well turned out.  Men are falling in love with a woman and her orbit-not solely judging her on her physical appearance. As a man and woman age, their needs, desires and wants become different from their younger selves. Beauty within, for both women and men, becomes far more important when you are dating or marrying the second time around. You learn that compassion, respect and devotion are the new trophies.

Episode 1 – Maybe she is the real life Carrie Bradshaw?

Some like to impersonate Carrie Bradshaw with their fantastic and outlandish clothing and vast closets. Even Sarah Jessica Parker pretends to be Carrie Bradshaw when she  dresses to walk the red carpet. 

However, there is  one gal in all of NYC who, if he knew her, should have been the muse for Darren Star.  Let me introduce you to Susan S Warner, the adorable, petite blond who at 58 lost her handsome and extraordinary husband to cancer and six months prior, her wonderful son, 32, to death by suicide. 

“And Just Like That,” Susan became Carrie. Carrie may have her beat on exposure, but Susan has her beat on life’s experiences. It’s now four years later. After the most challenging days and nights, Susan decided to live her best life possible and that meant, “Susan was suddenly single.”
