A friend of mine posted this wonderful little story. And while I’m not so sentimental about these things (don’t send me any pass-this-on-to-ten-women-you-love stuff, or you will go down), I thought this was lovely and wanted to share it with you –
One evening an old Cherokee 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.”
Nice, huh? So true.
Of course, after my friend posts this heartfelt Cherokee tale, a friend of hers replies (let’s call him Floyd):
“What if you have two Badgers tussling inside you. One is fat, lazy & flatulent, the other would hump a pile of rocks in case there was a snake in there? Who wins then? Uhhh… a friend was asking.”
There’s one in every crowd.
