A Parable

I came across this Native American parable last week and wanted to share it with you:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. 

“There is a fight going on inside of me. It is a terrible fight between two wolves.

One is very bad. He is filled with anger, envy, greed, self-doubt, and misery.

The other is very good. He is filled with love, hope, joy, peace, courage, and kindness.

The same fight is going on inside of you, and every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and asked, “Which wolf will win?”

The grandfather simply replied, “The one you feed.”

What you feed grows.

Our thoughts and the things we focus on shape who we become.


Remember to be mindful of what you feed your body, mind, and soul.
I hope your week is filled with positive thoughts!
