She explained on Instagram that it never represented her experience, saying:
“Did you know that the Indo-European root meaning of the word widow ways ‘be empty?’ Be empty. ‘Be,’ in specimen you forgot, is a verb, an whoopee word. I have to identify myself with a word that ways to stay ’empty’ — no wonder I hate saying the word! I am not a glass-half-empty kind of girl! What’s ironic to me is that in meeting and spending time with other widows and widowers, we are everything but ‘being empty.’ We are drastic to FILL our cup! We are trying everyday to live a life that is overflowing in presence and gratitude.”
And there is no need to go searching for a new name considering Kloots has once found a increasingly positive term to take its place:
“I don’t know how you go well-nigh waffly a word, but I propose a word that ways something increasingly hopeful. A word that gives us strength and power! A word that is optimistic in a time when we need it most. Renovare, ways to ‘renew.’ I’m not sure if it’s the right word, but it sure defines me increasingly than ‘be empty.’ So here’s to my fellow renovares who are striving everyday to renew, reinvent and refill their cup!”
