Heed advice and accept instruction so that your wisdom may increase in the future.  – Prov 19:20

Reflection.  The ancient philosopher Epictetus gave us some sage advice: “First say to yourself what you should be, and then do what you have to do.”  It sounds so simple, but try it.  Staying faithful to your noble goals and aspirations takes willpower.

Prayer.  There’s still time for me, Lord, to make my life really meaningful.  Give me the grace to keep trying.
