An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Our lives are full of positive and negative influences every day. Sometimes they are in our control, sometimes not so much.
What is always in our control is what we decide to give our time and attention to. What wolf we feed.
There are quite a few articles coming up to help make that switch from the negitive to the positive thinking, and I will link them here as they go up.
For now though, this is the base of everything else. Knowing what we’re putting our energy into.
