If the thought of putting yourself back out there to find a new love, not as a replacement, but because you know you aren't meant to be alone, you must listen to Debbie Weiss share her experiences. Why? Well - trust me - just listen.
Debbie's memoir, Available As Is: A Midlife Widow’s Search For Love, is about creating a new life and finding her voice after spending 32 years with her husband who died in 2013. "I was fifty, and had never before been on my own. I was also extremely cautious, having lost my mom at ten so I learned early that those we love can vanish at any time. " Debbie learned, as a widow, about how taking small steps forward can add up to a new life. These lessons include not dating until you've healed, joining groups, proactively reaching out to new people, and most importantly, forgiving yourself when you stumble. With an MFA in Creative Writing at age 56, she gave up a career as a lawyer, and eagerly shares her story with us.
