Becoming Wise

What matters most is what sort of person you are becoming. Wise individuals care only about whom they are today and who they can be tomorrow

~ Epictetus ~


We must live by those lessons of the recovery life in order to become wise. Wisdom is not something that springs up overnight. Learning wisdom is a process that helps us begin to see life objectively and to handle life with healthy stability.

Do we continually seek after recovery and sobriety where we are able to learn wisdom? If so, we come to continually rely on our Higher Power that is the source of wisdom. We are to engage in seeking worthy mentors that are healthy, carefully listen to their insights, and begin associating with those who are working a healthy recovery program.


Whoever walks with the wise will become wise, but a companion of fools will suffer harm. 

~ Proverbs 13:20, ESV ~


When we focus on continually walking with our higher power, associate with others in recovery, we will begin to find wisdom. This leads us to become a blessing to our friends, our family, and within our community. We start living a recovery life that is above reproach.


Today’s Mindful Meditation
