Which wolf?

This photo isn't mine, but I don't know whose it is to give credit. Isn't he gorgeous?

Earlier this week, a coworker reminded me of this little story.

Just a few hours later I found myself very much in need of this lesson. I am thankful it was so top of mind. Coincidence? Sometimes I wonder if there is such a thing as coincidence.

Here's the story:

An old Cherokee Indian was speaking to his grandson: “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, greed and resentment. The other is good – he is peace, love, hope and serenity."

“Which wolf will win?” the boy asked.

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one I feed.”

I'm still struggling a bit, but I'm trying hard to feed the good wolf.

  1. ...Good stuff! I'd say, throw 'em both a steak and see who wins!
