A Good Thought For the Beginning of the New Year

The Two Wolves
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle 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, sereni ty, 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.’

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
