Which Wolf Will You Feed?

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all 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.'

Why did I add that here today? Because today, as we read more about the election results, and the economy and the war in Iraq we are going to be torn about where to put our attention.

Let's keep our attention where it will do the most good. "Attend" to your work, family, friends and home. Make those areas grow with your attention. Feed the wolf you want to keep in your life.
