  • To my younger and less wise self

    A letter to younger Jim,

    Ahh yes…writing to myself as a youngster.  So many good times, but yet, the main thing I want to do is grab you and shake you and say “cmon man! get in the game!” lol. More on that in a bit. But moving on. I remember you being pretty shy in your high school days. Not always. But painfully shy in some instances. On the…read more

    • Jim, you’ve shared before about coming out of your shell. And I am so glad you did or you probably wouldn’t even be a part of The Unsealed. I am glad your confidence has grown and you’ve become more outgoing. Your a great person and the more people you interact with the better. 🙂 Thank you for sharing ! -Lauren

    • Amazing story Jim. I know sometimes shyness can be nerve-racking. especially when it comes to sports that you truly like. I’m glad you ended up coming out of your shell a bit more as you grew older. I myself wasn’t really a shy person but I was pretty shy when it came to performing like what if I mess up type stuff. I think it’s a natural thing…read more

      • Hi Kayjah. Thanks so much for the kind words. Funny thing is, sports was the place I Felt the most comfortable actually. Especially on the baseball field. And it was the unknown that made me uncomfortable. Like people I didn’t know. That’s when I was the most shy. Performing? What kind of performing do you do? Thanks again for the kind words.

    • Jim I was so clumsy in high school (even in basketball). It made me so worried I’d do something embarrassing that I was so serious and didn’t get to have the fun that I wanted. Somewhere along the way, I realized the worst anyone could do was laugh at me so I started finding what I thought embarrassing funny. It helped me relax a lot and realize…read more

      • Hi Jael. Nice to meet you. Thank you for the kind words too. Funny thing is on the basketball court and on the baseball field was where I was the most comfortable. And I wasn’t brutally shy, it was only around situation that I wasn’t familiar with. If I was around people in my comfort zone I wasn’t as shy. The unknown was what got to me. that’…read more

    My motivation

    As far as a childhood dream, there was always baseball player or basketball player. Things like that. But at about the same time I realized those were far fetched, I realized that all I really wanted was to emulate my parents and make them as proud of me as possible. I realized that nothing would be more important. Seeing how they took care of me…read more

    • James I am glad that you didn’t give up on your why. Your parents helped you build this and your letter of how you kept pushing will help me as long as I keep pushing forward. The only thing that’s changed is that now, instead of being lost in the woods, I, like you, have in a way, a map to guide me. Your letter is an eye opener.

      • Hi Kayjah. Wow. Thank you for the very kind words. I’m glad that my letter had a positive impact on you. That means a whole bunch. Yeah we had a simple household, but a very fun one. Dad worked hard at Chrysler. We never were without anything. They were tough. But very fair. Their wisdom will be with me through the years. Thanks again for r…read more

    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

    • I am sorry for your loss. Mothers are truly magical though. It is amazing to me that no matter what is going on or what a mother is dealing with, a good mother will always calm her child first and foremost. My mother is the same way. She always comforts me even if she is struggling with something. The love between a parent and child is just so…read more

      • Thank you for the very kind words Lauren. Yes it truly is amazing. Great moms just have a knack. And yes, always put their kids first. Mom was definitely like that. Our house was a very popular hub. Kids were always over, we had lots of gatherings to watch Browns games and stuff. We still laugh: whenever anyone would come over, especially after…read more

      I was very touched by your words. Your Mother sounds like she was amazing. I don’t have to tell you how lucky you are to be touched by such an angel. I am sure you are passing on the love you received to all those around you. Love is such a positive force that can really elevate someone’s life. We need more of that in these very tro…read more

        Thank you Shelley. Very much appreciated. Yes my mom was certainly an amazing woman. I’m amazed at all mothers to be honest. Mothers are amazing. Juggling duties, tasks and responsibilities. All the while still taking care of their children first and foremost. That’s great that you had a great mother. It’s clear that she passed along what she k…read more

      I’m sorry you lost your mom 18 years ago. It’s great that you have many good memories of her. Memories that will stay with you…forever. There’s nothing like a mother’s love. That warmth to comfort you when you have a bad day or are going through a tough time is such a blessing to have. It’s been 21 years since I lost my mom. That’s hard…read more

        Hey Gerald

        Thanks so much for the kind words. Not just kind, but right on the money. She is definitely looking down on me. I imagine her voice in my head and it makes me smile. She was 4’10” and was fierce. But soft hearted. She always put her kids first. No matter what. I’m sorry to hear about your mom. 21 years is a long time. Most of your…read more

          I’m glad my words were right on the money. Haha. Looking at the photo of your mom, I believe that she was fierce and soft-hearted. She sounds like my oldest sister. Lol. She’s very fierce as well. Lol. Your mom looked like a very loving person. Yeah, my mom has been gone for most of my life now, it’s crazy to think about. It…read more
