Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about the battle that goes on inside all people. He said, "My son, there is a battle between two 'wolves' which is always going on inside us all....

There is the black wolf who 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 the white wolf which 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."

You are amazing, talented, beautiful and kind. Sobriety is not only something you can have, but something you deserve. Peace and serenity are your God given birth right. Feed that-not all the other bullshit. xo, em
