My Happy Single Life is here to encourage and inspire single women to live a happy, full, content life. You don’t have to HAVE a significant other to BE significant! I want you to celebrate your singleness and live your best single life.
After searching the web and coming up empty, I created this site to be the kind of resource I wanted and needed. Real help, encouragement, advice, and inspiration for living as a middle-aged single woman. I’m well past the mommy blogger stage, but not yet into retirement. I wanted more than fashion and makeup tips (although you may find some of that on here too!). I want solid, real info on the good, the bad, and everything in between – including money, health, travel, friendships, dating, growing older, and this thing called menopause. Yikes!
Hey there, I’m Carla, the founder of MyHappySingleLife.com and Singles Squad. I’m a down to earth, over 40 (almost 50) gal with a tell-it-like-it-is attitude. I don’t hold much back and have a pretty good b.s. meter. I try to see the silver lining in every situation and believe change is a good thing. I also believe in celebrating life no matter what your circumstances. Life truly is short and you only get one, so make the best of it!
My personal tips and advice come from a place of experience. I’ve been single most of my life and I experience the same things you do. I’m in the trenches with you, trying to live my best single life too. I’m also recruiting others to share their experiences with you. This isn’t about me, it’s about providing a place for all single women over 40 to learn, grow and share together.
To read more in-depth about why I started this blog and my vision for it check out this blog post.
You may have chosen the single life or it may have chosen you through divorce or death. No matter where you are on your single journey, I’m working every day to make this site helpful and relevant for you.
And don’t get the wrong idea… celebrating your singleness and living your best single life does not mean you have to give up hope of getting married some day, if that’s what you desire. I believe in living your best single life and in finding love! While dating is not the focus of this website – living happy as a single is – dating can definitely be part of being a happy and content single so you will find dating tips and advice on the blog and shared in the private Singles Squad Facebook group.
