Light Fare Friday: Two Wolves

As you are facing difficult situations in your life, remember that you may choose which path to follow.  I read this quote recently that illustrates this point nicely.  I am not sure who the original author is:
 

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a debate 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 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.”

Which wolf will you feed today?
