This is Stacie King, and I am the host of This Wobbly Life. I am very fortunate to have met some extraordinary people in my life who teach me new lessons each and every day. These are their stories. My hope is that they will inspire you in some small way and help you find a little balance in your own life.
Episode Two: A candid and inspiring talk with Reed Power
The tough moments do not define our life but our spirit to live with zeal does. Life is indeed a rollercoaster ride and not all of us see the good and the bad in quite the way others do. We all experience different hardships in the form of unexpected situations, accidents, sudden disease, loss of loved ones, and more. The important thing is how we carry the things we are going through or have been through within us and how we use it or let it change us.
My next guest Reed Power, is probably one of the sweetest, most humble yet strong-spirited people I have had the pleasure to meet. He is also a real-life inspiration for me. Reed is from Loganville, Georgia, and is a young man that played high school and college basketball growing up. At 6’5, he was born to play basketball! When Reed was just twenty years old he had his life mapped out with plans to play college athletics and to possibly become a coach one day, until one moment changed everything for him in a matter of seconds. He will share the details of that day of course, but what you will be surprised to hear is this young man’s response to it. Resilience in the face of uncertainty and disappointment shows so much about one’s character. It is my great honor to share with you, Reed’s story of grit and grace in even the most unfortunate of circumstances.
I believe that no matter our situation, there is always somebody out there having a bit of a harder time that is doing all they can just to keep going. Some like Reed resolve to lift the spirits of everyone around him, even when he may be going through the toughest of times. He may be soft-spoken, but his message is loud and clear. After listening to this episode, I hope you will come away with a smile on your face and a warm place in your heart for this awesome young man and his wonderful outlook on life. I for one, am a better person just by knowing him.
