You don't always need a plan.Mandy Hale. Positive Inspiration Quote

"You don't always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens". Mandy Hale.

Sometimes you may not have a plan and that is totally fine. Often a great idea I find is to offer your problems up to the universe and then forget  about them. You will be shown a way at some point but nothing is worse than dwelling on a problem, trying to find a plan or decide which route to take. By offering your problem up to a higher power you are taking it away from your worry sphere so the solution is more likely to pop into your head, worrying about it does nothing. Breathing, letting go and trusting is  a very good way of finding an answer. 

Mandy Hale is a woman with lots of good sound advice to give."With a heart to inspire single women to live their best lives and to never, ever settle, Mandy 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 talk about the many realities of being single in a world that still asks And WHY are you still single?" 

Mandy Hale has written a brilliant book called The Single Woman's Sassy Survival Guide: Letting Go and Moving On  

This is what she has to say about life!
"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!"

I just love the way she talks, straightforward and to the point. It's hard to let go of something in your life and move on even if you know that something is not right for you, it's comfortable, it's safe, you feel you need a plan. However you don't always need a plan, you just need to take that step in the right direction. Remember, I know I keep beating on about this (!) but if there is anything in your life that you want to let go of, the waning moon is the best time to choose to do it in. You will let go of things and move on much more easily if you allow nature to be on your side and to help you through the process.
