Hi and welcome! As the tagline states, this blog is about personal growth and taking back control of your life.

Most of my writing is posted on Medium as I can reach a larger audience there. So please visit me there as well. I have also started publishing on a new site called Assemblage

If you haven’t figured it out by the site name, I’m Jeff. I like to write. I’m certainly not the best writer in the world, but the more I write, the better I get. I write about all kinds of topics. I enjoy and like to write about non-fiction topics including running, fitness, personal growth, and self-improvement. I also like to write about ZOMBIES! And I will occasionally dip my toes in the relationship arena. 

I also like writing about not so fun mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and loneliness. I think it’s important to discuss these topics and what we can do as a society to help lessen the stigma. I’m hoping I can help people connect by examining our crazy lives and engaging in discussion about subjects which most people avoid.

The reason I like to write about these topics is that I’ve experienced them. Writing is therapeutic for me. I’ve struggled like a lot of people out there and want to help. I’m not a professional counselor, therapist or anything like that. I’m your average middle-aged man who has had some problems. Problems which a lot of us experience and don’t know exactly what to do. By creating this blog, I’m hoping we can figure it out together.

I am an avid runner, lover of books, a practitioner of positive thinking, and most importantly, and father to two wonderful kids. I am also a big fan of tiny homes! 

I am learning to live again. I do that one day at a time.

I would love to hear from you about any topic on the blog or if you just need someone to connect with or talk to. 

You can contact me via email at or via the contact form on the site. I would also love to connect with you on Twitter and Instagram. I also have a podcast on Anchor which discusses the same subjects I write about. 

I don’t have a newsletter and to be honest, I really don’t want one. You can still subscribe to find out when new articles are published or contact me with any questions. 

I’m not trying to sell you anything either as I don’t have a book or any of those annoying downloads that promise you miracles which are not possible. I started this blog to not only help myself but others as well. But, there is a book in the works! 

Thanks for stopping by!
