Every day, we have to make decisions…some are sometimes harder than others. Much of what we become as we get older is a result of the many decisions that we have made.We all have a “good voice” and a “bad voice” conscience…which one have you listened to the most? What kind of person have you become? or…more importantly…what do you WANT to become? The following little story perfectly illustrates my point

A Cherokee was instructing his grandson about a battle that goes on in every human being. He said to the young man, “the battle is between two wolves. One wolf is slothful, cowardly, vain, arrogant, and full of self-pity, sorrow, regret, envy and anger. The other wolf is diligent, courageous, humble, benevolent, and full of compassion, joy, empathy and faith”. Then there was a silence.

The grandson thought about the wolves for a moment and then asked his grandfather, “which wolf wins?”

The Cherokee elder replied, “the one you feed”.
