CONFLICTED



An old Cherokee Chief is teaching his grandson about life.

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."

He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply replied, 

"The one you feed."

I had to do double take - thought I was at the wrong blog! But I love the new layout. It is light and bright and easy on the eyes.

Loved the post too. "The one you feed" is right!

Have a great weekend!

Very wise words, my dear friend.

I'm having a bit of a battle going on in my own life at the moment.
Sometimes old things come back to haunt you.
You know what I mean about other blogs.
TTYS!
