The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: How It All Began…
Quote of the Day:

The Single Woman Says:
They say the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step…well, in my case, it began with a single tweet. The tweet above, to be exact, which I sent out two years ago today from a Twitter account I had created called @TheSingleWoman. An account that had exactly one tweet, zero followers, but a whole lotta heart.
Today, exactly two years and nearly 15,000 tweets later, we are a global family of more than 420,000 people and counting. And I have never been so proud to be The Single Woman.
Over the past two years, I have shared my heartbreaks, my victories, my defeats, my joys, my sorrows, my lessons, my wins, and my losses with each one of you – all through my tweets. You might not have realized it, but the things I was saying to you, I was also saying to myself. When I would stumble and fall, I would turn it into an inspirational message, hoping that my lesson would become your blessing. When a guy broke my heart, I would remind myself, and you along with me, that a broken heart is a beautiful heart, and that just because one person can’t see your worth doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I never told you this long, strange trip we call single life would be perfect – just that it would be worth it. In a way, MY journey became YOUR journey – and vice versa. I feel that, together, we have given single women across the world a voice. A sassy, classy, fierce, fabulous, confident voice. And this is only the beginning.
You have shared your stories with me; stories that have made me laugh and made me cry and made me proud to be among your ranks. Beyond that – you have encouraged and inspired and motivated me FAR BEYOND what I could ever hope to do for you. You have made me get out of bed on days when it felt like the entire world was against me. You have reminded me of who I am at times when I have forgotten. You have blessed my life in a million different little ways and your belief in me and in my message and in yourselves have given me a new life’s purpose – to share your story, OUR story, with the WORLD.
And now, on the two-year anniversary of this movement we’ve built together, I bring you a very special announcement. I am now able to bring my story to you in a whole new way. Though it won’t be available on all platforms until Valentine’s Day, my first book is up and available for download on Amazon.com as of TODAY, just for my beautiful followers! You have asked me numerous times over the past two years, “Do you have a book?” And as of today, the answer is YES. “The Single Woman’s Sassy Survival Guide: Letting Go & Moving On” was written FOR you, inspired BY you, and now available TO you for the first time ever. I hope you will see a glimmer of yourselves in my story, because it isn’t just the story of one single woman, but ALL single women. For you see, my friends…we are ALL “The Single Woman.”
