Inside Us All ♥

One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather
: ‘Which wolf wins?
The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.’



I read this today and felt instantly connected to it. It's true for us all, so make a daily choice and feed the good wolf until the other starves and dies.



Luv, Nikki ♥
