  • My Amazing Mom

    To try to think of one particularly great story about my mom that really stands out..is kind of a challenge. That feels weird to write it, and said out loud its even more strange. I guess life with my mom was just an endless series of great moments, great days..a bunch of small every day things that comprised one amazing life.My mom passed away 18…read more

    My advice for the younger me

    To my younger self,

    Several years ago, mom and dad moved out of our childhood home and mom sent me a box filled with items from our room that she didn’t know if I wanted to keep or throw away.

    As I looked through this box, I found random items like a Mia Hamm Barbie in a package that I never opened and drawings from third or fourth grade. As I d…read more

    • I think Unsealed Conversations is your own network Lauren. Within The Unsealed it serves as a great amplifier of the stories you tell for people. If not a network it’s definitely your own kind of talk show. Without The Unsealed I wouldn’t be taking my crazy old Volvo to be in a movie tomorrow. Most likely I’d be buried the the plot meant for my…read more

      • Aww Roger, that is so sweet. It’s people like you that keep me pushing. I still want to grow and be so much bigger. But I know I have to be patient and it will come. I am so glad The Unsealed and our friendship has had such a positive impact on your well-being and your life. You inspire me to keep pushing ever day.

        Life is really hard sometime…read more

    • That part on stop missing on the joy of the present moment because you’re consumed with the unknowns of your future is so true! It’s tough to stay in the present when your mind has been conditioned to constantly think about the future. The Unsealed (In a way) is your show, Lauren. It shows your willingness to share other people’s stories. It a…read more

      • It really is tough to stay present. It is something I still struggle with. I am a worrier and trying to build a business sure doesn’t make that any easier. But it’s people like you and letters like this one that remind me that everything will be OK and that I am on the right track and I just have to keep pushing. I am so glad you found The…read more

    That’s a powerful story. He’s right. You shouldn’t accept anything less than what he would have been willing to give. From anyone. Grief is tough. Comes in all shapes and sizes. I’m currently apart from my ex girlfriend. It’s brutal. I want to be back w her so much. But I can’t speed up the process. It just has to be a one day at a time proces…read more

    • I am so sorry for your losses as well. They say time heals all, but I remember writing when I was a kid that time doesn’t heal all, you just start to get used to the way you feel. One day at a time is definitely the best advice, but the reality is, some days are certainly better than others.

      With that said, I have also experienced magical…read more

      • I think you are right on. I don’t think you ever fully heal from serious grief like that. You just get used to things as they are. Because to be fully healed, I’d think that means as good as you were before the loved ones went away. And I don’t think that will ever be the case in things like that. Nothing will ever be as good as it was. You just…read more
