Happily Even After Widowhood

Feb 20, 2014 | 0 comments

The questions and issues surrounding the death of a spouse are numerous and complex – immediately following the funeral as well as months or years later. “Who am I?” and “What do I do now?” are the two most pressing questions right after an abrupt change from couple to single person.

Carole Brody Fleet faced those questions when she became a widow at age 40. She found no resources that spoke directly to her needs as a young widow. In 2006, she founded Widows Wear Stilettos, a non-profit organization to help move widows/widowers in a future-focused direction with confidence. She is the author of Widows Wear Stilettos: A Practical and Emotional Guide for the Young Widow.

Carole Brody Fleet joins host Gail Rubin on A Good Goodbye Radio on Wednesday, February 26 at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT on Toginet Talk Radio to discuss the tips in her new book, Happily Even After: A Guide to Getting Through (and beyond) the Grief of Widowhood.

Topics include how to:

  • Live as a single person in a couple’s world
  • Transform holidays back into joyous, memorable occasions
  • Find grief groups and choose one if that’s right for you
  • Rekindle neglected friendships and start new ones
  • Give yourself permission to explore dating
