Two Wolves

The Power To Choose

by Charmaine Hunte

Do you ever stop to think about the choices you make every day?

 Does your morning routine include an excitement for the new day or a war with the snooze button?  There is a term called setting the tone that is used in cultural performances and business meetings as well and its only purpose is to give an event a theme that is weaved throughout the event.  Every morning you have the opportunity to set the tone that you choose for that day.   

Below is a story I would like to share.  I first received it as an email a long time ago and it really makes you think about the choices we make.  They are not my words but I feel it is an inspiring example of the power to choose.



One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about abattle 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 andfaith.”

 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.” 

Every day is precious, a fresh start a renewal.  Seize the day. Choose wisely!  

Your comments and thoughts are always appreciated.
