Be sure to tune in to my BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye Radio with Carole Brody Fleet, widely credited as America’s go-to expert on grief recovery. Carole joins me in the studio to talk about her latest book, Loss is a Four-Letter Word, a Bereavement Boot Camp For the Widowed, available now.

Carole Brody Fleet's book "Loss is a Four Letter Word"/Photo: Courtesy Carole Brody Fleet | The Women's Eye Magazine and Radio ShowWhen Carole Brody Fleet lost her husband Mike to ALS, she was a young mother of a 9-year-old girl. Resources on how to navigate this unimaginable and frightening “widowhood journey” were hard to come by so she began writing.

She understood what it meant to feel alone and marginalized, and “wanted to be someone that people felt they could turn to.”

This award-winning author is not only a wonderful writer and tireless advocate for widows, she is also a long-time friend of mine and TWE. I first interviewed her nearly a decade ago after my dad passed away.

Her first book Widows Wear Stilettos was well-received within the widow community and beyond, and was a tremendous help to both me and my mom. Since then, she has been a frequent and welcome guest on the show, and she is my “hero!” (How’s that for a four-letter word?!)

Loss is a Four-Letter Word is the fourth in a series dealing with grief (including Happily EVEN After and When Bad Things Happen to Good Women).

In this book, readers have to ask themselves, “What what am I doing to facilitate my own healing?”

Fleet then guides them through actionable, reasonable baby steps which can help them start moving in a forward-focus (not “get over”), positive direction…to a place of peace. Says the motivational speaker: “I’m needed to be compassionate, but beyond that, what are we going to do to fix this? That’s my job.”

Through her boot-camp style lessons and end-of-chapter affirmations she calls EKITA (an acronym for “Extra Kick In The Ass”!), Fleet says she hopes those suffering through a challenging life-journey will gain a sense of empowerment.

Widows Wear Stilettos Book Cover | The Women's Eye Magazine and Radio ShowWhether you are dealing with the loss of a spouse, beloved pet, or even the end of a job, Fleet says it is an honor to be there for people at their most challenging moment and to offer hope and promise.

“There are … things that I never knew that widowhood had taught me, and I am grateful for that experience.”

Interview: Carole Brody Fleet on Love, Loss and Facing the Holidays

By Stacey Gualandi/December 3, 2014

With the holidays quickly approaching, many of us are looking forward to the endless shopping, decorating and gathering of friends and family. But there are some who look at this time of year with dread. They are dealing with loss—be it the death of a loved one, or even a job—and facing the holidays alone.

Carole Brody Fleet/Happily EVEN AfterGrief recovery expert  Carole Brody Fleet is a good friend of TWE and me. I first met and interviewed her on TWE Radio after she published the breakthrough book Widows Wear Stilettos, her personal story of losing her husband right before the holidays in 2000.

Her follow-up, Happily Even After, won the Books for a Better Life award. She has another book and other exciting projects ready to launch in the new year. She works tirelessly, reaching out to those who need support, because she understands. She’s been there.

With people close to me experiencing tremendous loss this year, I hoped Carole could share her own story and guidance.  In this interview,  we discuss what it means to be single at the holidays, how to cope with loss and loneliness and what tools can help you face the future with determination, not dread.
