Book Description

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent, realistic book March 19, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mandy Hale has really hit on some key points here. If you are struggling in a relationship I strongly encourage you to read both this and How To Meet A Man Without Trying: Exceptional Dating Advice For Women as soon as possible. These two Kindle books are short and unusual, because they absolutely are full of REALISTIC advice to help improve your self-image and dating life, without sugarcoating anything.

A very difficult part in a relationship with a guy can be maintaining your sense of self-respect. This is what Hale really focuses on. If you struggle in this area you NEED to read this book. Some of her convincing key points:

*No matter how attractive a guy may seem, you have to date who he actually is. Romance cannot be idealism, but loving realism.

*Trusting your intuition is a key way to always maintain your self-respect and not be put in negatively emotional situations

*Saying "no" can sometimes be much more important than saying "yes"

*Your life should not revolve around a man, it should revolve around YOU. A good partner will appreciate this about you.

Overall, this is a great, great book. I can't say enough good things about the thoughtful advice Mandy shares.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to write home about April 15, 2012
By ang
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I first got the sample of the book. I liked it, so for $3 I thought why not buy it. It was a quick read. At times I thought she was talking about my ex. Relatable. However, it did not go into depth. Things I have heard before. And besides the title being a bit corny, I thought the content was too at times. I am not one for rhymes! Overall the book was ok, I don't think I wasted my money or time per se since it wasn't much, but I didn't get any gems of wisdom either.

BTW, I came across the book because of the high reviews. She strongly suggests several times in the book that if one likes the book to please give it a review, so that could be the reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! February 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been following Mandy Hale and the Single Woman on Twitter and on her website for a while now. Mandy's tweets have been very encouraging to me as I go through this part of my life as a single woman. So, when I heard that Mandy had written a book, I knew that I had to read it. I was not disappointed! I could not stop reading it - I read it one sitting! It is an easy read, but Mandy has really put her heart into this book and it is very helpful. If you feel that you need really need to let go of something to move forward in your life but find that hard to do, this book will encourage you and give you guidance in letting go. I was recently faced with the decision to let go of something (a relationship) that I wanted to work so badly, but deep down I knew it wasn't working. I had been struggling with that decision, but this book opened my eyes to what I need to do. Her story sounds a lot like mine! Thanks, Mandy, for sharing your heart, lessons learned and insight!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! September 25, 2013
By jaime
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just this past April when my husband of nearly 12 years announced he no longer wanted to be married I was sent into a tail spin. I looked and looked for books to help me since I am an avid reader but everything out there focused on why he was a jerk and how awful he was and why I was better off without him. But none of that rang true and only led me down a path of bitterness. Nothing told me how to wake and face each day and forgive. Until I saw a quote. My aunt posted a meme on face book with the following quote.."you may never understand why something happened the way it don't drive yourself crazy trying" that was followed by the name Mandy Hale. That's exactly what I was doing. Every day. What did I do wrong. How did this happen. Until I felt I was going to go insane. Then came another quote with the name Mandy Hale and then another one. I soon decided I had to figure out who this Mandy Hale person was and how did she know what I was going through. By doing a google search of her name I found her survival guide and was eventually led to her book. Both have helped me in ways I could never imagine. I think everyone should read this, single or not. Her books focus not on the why or how things happen but instead on how to let go and forgive and how to become exactly who I was meant to be all along. My favorite quote from her book is "Ten years from now, make sure you chose your life. You didn't settle for it. Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. Trust. Imagine. Wish. Believe. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey....."

Thank you, Mandy and to anyone wondering if this book is for you, it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars great find! October 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Im going through a heart-wrenching breakup. I thought I was going to marry this man. I realize now how toxic it was, but I would never have left had he not ended it. I tried and tried and tried to make it work, and exhausted myself in the process. I feel broken. I allowed it to break me. That sounds so silly and ridiculous. Im a great person with a lot going for me and I let this man BREAK ME. I feel much better after reading this and stronger. Its going to take time, and I may have to read this book several more times, but I will heal and find myself again. Im no longer feeling hopeless.

This book is a must read! I have not been able to put it down. I am going through a divorce so this couldn't be more perfect for me to read at this time. It makes you think and honestly I have found myself going back and rereading things so that I don't forget them. Get this book! You won't be sorry!
