"Whichever one I choose to feed"

by brenrose on February 11, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm sure all of you have heard the story about the Cherokee grandfather who told his grandson a story about two wolves, one good and one evil, fighting. The grandson asked which one wins and his grndfather answered simply with "Whichever one I choose to feed". I read that story when I was little, but its true meaning really hit me today. And I realized that I was feeding the wrong wolf. I have been for a while. I'm going to try to feed the good wolf from now on, the happy, joyful, kind, optimistic one, insted of the other. Of course, it's going to be difficult. In this world, being a teenager is hard. There is peer pressure and all of those things to try and push you into bad ways. Feeding the good wolf is important. I'll feed him from now on :) I'm sharing this with you in hopes that you also will learn which wolf you're feeding and which you need to feed. God bless you all :)
