Livin’ and Laughing OR Slippin’ & Sliding?

Share This Post

Dear “Oh Carol:”

Widowed for 18 yrs! Live in very small community. Options limited. Want to live, laugh & love again! Would love to find a gated single community to finish my race. Warm weather‼️. Gotta stop contemplating & move forward!!! Help.



Carol Ziegler (AFL’s “Oh Carol”)

As you’ve probably discovered, life in a small community severely limits your options. Everyone knows everyone and they all want you to remain exactly as they know you. It would rattle their world if you were anyone but “Mrs. Smith the widow” so the fact that you’re looking to relocate says a lot about you how much is left in your race!

I’m not a realtor so unfortunately I can’t recommend where to go. Start with a part of the country you like. Do you have family or friends living in places you’d consider moving to? Research the area for senior centers, activities that appeal to you, public transportation (in case you don’t drive) and climate. Ask people. If you can afford to make a trip and visit, do so!

Paul Simon was only 36 years old when he wrote

“Slip slidin’ away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you’re slip slidin’ away”

We’re all slip slidin’ away from the moment we’re born but these lyrics feel more relevant at this age. Why not slide into that finish line in a destination of your choosing (in a warm climate! lol)?
Your signature is your answer! Stop contemplating & move forward!

Yours 4 Love!
