Here’s to Life

Listen to the conversation…

“Start to find out: ‘What is your intention for this experience you call your life? What are you trying to do with it?’ That really helped me get clear that doing drugs, and lying, and cheating, and stealing don’t work … because I can’t get where I want to go with those issues. And I began to really want to be helpful to people.”  Ed Reed

“Understand that change is possible, and you can start from a very seemingly failed place. It’s possible to have your dreams, no matter how old you are. It’s possible to come out of whatever you’re in … if you’re willing to do the work.” – Diane Reed
