Freedom to choose

Travis and Terra row hard for 1 minute as Abby waits for her round to start again.

Which wolf do you feed? An old Cherokee told his grandson, “My son, there’s a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, and truth.” The boy thought about it, then asked, “Grandfather, which wolf will win?” The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”

The above parable is one of my favorites. Every day we are faced with choices. Each choice offers different paths. Sometimes these paths can lead in nearly opposite direction to one another. You can only choose one direction, and you are not allowed to go back, only forward. Feeling the emotions that stir within you can help to direct you along your path. Are the emotions of jealousy, resentment, greed, etc. dominating your days? Then perhaps it is time to choose another path.
