Are we better off single?
When happily ever after means a party of one, the average single mid-life woman generally struggles to find her way.
What she doesn’t know is that singles past 50 are less depressed, travel more, have better bodies, achieve more in life, are smarter, experience stronger friendships, have better social lives, get more sleep, do less housework and have better sex lives than their married counterparts. So why are so many unhappy? Great question; the answers lie in the book Single Past 50 Now What?
I’m here to help and I take no prisoners as I assuredly point out that being single at a mature age, while it’s no cake walk, could very well be the best thing to ever happen to you.
Humor, gut-wrenching honesty and surprising facts guide you to the realization that, just maybe, life is about to get a lot better.
I’ve lived it.
I found myself single after 29 years of marriage in my fifties, my daughter off to college, broke and unemployed, and the cat and the dog to feed. Not exactly my life’s plan.
Having experienced bankruptcy, foreclosure, unemployment, eviction, and standing in the food stamp line, I have a very clear understanding of the perils that can plague and change our lives.
I have owned 5 very successful businesses (and one not so much) and have enjoyed five distinct careers. Life is a fickle beast but it all has a way of working out.
As the author of Single Past 50…Now What?, I offer a unique (and sometimes irreverent) guide how to survive and live happily single at 50 years young and beyond. Humor, boldness and surprising facts are yours for the finding in this very personal survival guide for the mature woman.
So, here’s the deal; when you finish this book, chances are pretty good you will feel as if a great weight has been lifted off your shoulders. You will find direction and begin the process of claiming your future happiness with determination and fortitude.
I penned this book with a resolve to help; a must read for every mother, sister, aunt or daughter who find themselves standing at the gate of mid-life, single. Best we get on with the business of living.
