It’s 2012 – The New Year Has Begun

Let’s start off the year with a quote that I have come across from a blog post that I found via (As an aside and to be fully transparent, I recently clicked on one of the highlighted blogs––and then eventually clicked on which got me to the quote that I really liked).

I am told that I have a 1/32nd or 1/16th portion of my lineage from the Cherokee tribe so I presume that I might be slightly biased :).

Here it is:

There is a story of an old Cherokee who told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside of every person – it is a battle between two wolves. One wolf is life-taking: it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, guilt, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other wolf is life-giving: it is joy, peace, love, hope serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather which wolf won. The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed’. I am working on only feeding the wolf who gives life.

Let us all think about the wolf we choose to feed as we start our new year.
Happy New Year folks.
