Hi! Thanks for stopping by.
I’m Jeff Ziegler: Widower. Wounded. Warrior. Waking. Walking.
Not one to get too caught up in labeling either myself or others, I am simply trying to be and become the best version of me. To truly connect with my higher self and simply “be me”. Which means being in tune with my emotions and willing to be both vulnerable and hold space for others. Having said that, my personality type is borderline INFJ/P, which means I am a serious introvert who prefers the company of one or two to many—and parties, bars, nightclubs for socializing are just not my scene. I am a die-hard romantic and adventurer…
My first soul mate, Suzanne, departed this earthly realm in 2018 (she died from breast cancer) and I have sought numerous outlets for my grief. What I have discovered is a way of being that enables me to live her legacy. My motto is “Love matters. Kindness matters. And do no harm…”
When I’m not working on my coaching business, I write. Now along with blogging about my existence, I am working at making my new home a haven and retreat for my true Self. I moved in August 2019 to the first house I have ever owned by myself, without my wife as a cohabitant.
Currently, I am putting into motion plans to create a sustainable farm on the property (it’s nearly 3-acres in North SD county), and while I am probably going to be looking for someone to share the “good life” with, right now, I have learned to be content in my “aloneness”…
While most of my musings and writing is about me, and how I am since being widowed, I also have three adult daughters (none of them living at home) who care deeply about me, their mama and about my writings. They are truly my world. They are their mama’s legacy, and I am trying to leave this world a better place for them by spreading the love and kindness I have discovered in my true self and that I really believe this world needs. I also have four fur babies living with me (and I am sure I will write about them, too) and I plan to have some goats, chickens and maybe some other animals on my property eventually.
I’m a committed vegan but don’t force myself or my views on others. If you’re reading this and you eat dead things, that’s okay with me. I don’t judge anyone or their life decisions any longer. My life is truly judgement free!
My friends would probably describe me as playful, energetic and youthful—a free spirited and fun loving adventurer—who acts a lot younger than my age (and to me, time is only an illusion which makes age purely a number). I may have had more life experience than most; but I truly believe that our spiritual energy and our true self is ageless, timeless and boundless.
Welcome to my blog… hope you learn something about my journey.
