Overview

As we weather the choppy waters we call Life, it’s a decision we will face time and time and time again: Do we cling to a situation that’s taking us under out of fear of letting go of the familiar…or do we open our hand and let go of that friendship, that relationship, that job, that opportunity, or that grievance that we’ve been clinging to, realizing that to flail around uncertainly for a season is all a part of discovering our destiny?

“How do you know so much about letting go and moving on?” You might ask. “What makes you the expert?”

Well, I’m not an expert. Let’s get that straight. I’m not a guru. I’m not a psychologist or a psychiatrist or a counselor or a fortune teller or the Great and Powerful Oz.

I am a single woman. Just like you.

Maybe you’re not a single woman – or even a woman. Maybe you’re just someone who needs to release someone or something that’s holding you back from being your best self and living your best life. And that’s okay, too. As I say on my Twitter page and on my website on a regular basis, anyone looking for inspiration and motivation is welcome here. Anyone looking to leave the past behind and shine is welcome here. And anyone who holds out for the best and refuses to settle for less is welcome here. Married, single, female, male, old, young, gay, straight. Come one, come all!

Just like you - I am a friend. A sister. A daughter. An aunt.

I have loved and lost. I have grieved and clung. I have let go and moved on.

Sneakers or stilettos, I’ve been in your shoes…and I know every step of the journey. Perhaps even better than any guru or expert or counselor or fortune teller.

I am the best friend who will tell you what you NEED to hear and not what you WANT to hear. I am the big sister with the shoulder to cry on when it seems like the rest of the world has turned away. I hope to be the Cruise Director who guides you full steam ahead through the often choppy and turbulent waters of letting go and moving on directly to the white sandy beach of life AFTER letting go and moving on. Do you see me? I’m waiting for you there, fruity drink with the little umbrella in hand.

So what does this actually look like, this “letting go and moving on” thing? What are the steps? What does it mean? And how do you know when it’s time to throw in the towel…call it a day…and walk away? In “The Single Woman’s Sassy Survival Guide to Letting Go & Moving On,” we’ll cover the five major areas of life that we often find ourselves needing to let go of: Relationships, Friendships, Jobs, Opportunities, and Grievances. How are we going to do it? By examining the five benchmarks for letting go and moving on: the Who, the What, the Why, the When, and the How. At the end of each chapter, we’ll review the Five Fabulous Finds from that section for you to take away as daily affirmations, pick-me-ups, or sassy reminders to get you off of “What Might Have Been” Highway and back on the road to letting go and moving on.

So sit down with your computer, your iPhone, your iPad, or whatever other technological device you happen to be reading from and let’s have some good old-fashioned girl talk. Kick off your shoes, grab a glass of wine…and let’s turn the page and leave the past behind.

Shall we?

Meet the Author

Mandy Hale is affectionately known around the world as "The Single Woman™." In less than two years, Mandy has garnered a massive Twitter following of some 450,000 people from across the globe. As of the release of this book, she attracts nearly 3,000 new followers each and every day on Twitter. In her home state of Tennessee, only Al Gore and Dolly Parton have more followers!

Some have called Mandy "the real-life Carrie Bradshaw." As a huge Sex & the City fan, Mandy loves the comparison to the fictitious character, but she's as real as they come. She cuts to the heart of the matter with her inspirational, straight-talking, witty, and often wildly humorous take on life and love. She's also not afraid to let her hair down and talk about the many realities of being single in a world that still asks "What do you do for a living AND are you married?" While Mandy does not want to be labeled a "role model," she is more than comfortable being a mentor to other single women.

Recently named a "Twitter Powerhouse" by the Huffington Post and a 2011 "Woman of Influence" by the Nashville Business Journal, Mandy is making a name for herself as the voice of empowerment and sassiness for single women across the globe.

In October of 2009, Mandy ended a year and a half long toxic relationship and was looking for an inspiring "single woman" role model to look up to for encouragement and motivation. She quickly discovered that since the world bid farewell to Carrie Bradshaw and the gang when Sex & the City went off the air in 2004, no one has stepped up to fill Carrie's sassy stilettos. If anything, the word "single" seemed to carry a stigma with it; of being unwanted, unlovable, and undesired. Looking around at all the fabulous, rockin' single ladies around her, Mandy knew something must be done. It was time for a "Single Woman" Revolution! Mandy launched her Twitter page and TheSingleWoman.com - both of which became an instant success. Now one of the most influential positive forces on Twitter, "The Single Woman" is synonymous with "Girl Power!"

The power behind Mandy's message lies in that she doesn't claim to be an expert, or a guru, or a counselor. As she has departed her 20s and is barely in her 30s, she is highly relatable because she speaks through the lens of her own life and the lessons she's learning as she goes through life as "the single woman."

    This isn't an in-depth book at 50 pages, but I will say that Ms.

    This isn't an in-depth book at 50 pages, but I will say that Ms. Hale got a lot in in those 50 pages. Much of what she wrote was common sense, and based on her own life or that of her friends and family. But sometimes, common sense isn't so common, and hearing/reading something for yourself is the best way to let it sink in. Is what Ms. Hale has to say mind-blowing? No. Is it at times trite? A bit, but it's meant to be in a fun, friendly kind of way, not a superior way. All in all, a decent read.

    Awesome

    This book teaches you how to fly, let your hair down, or carpe diem as some would say. Learning to love you more than anyone else possibly could is vital. Leaving toxic relationships, jobs, friendships, opportunities, and environments is essential in order for you to grow. Loved it.! Can't wait to buy the book!
