Thursday’s Cup of Comfort: Which Wolf Will You Feed?

A story I was looking for the past two weeks, showed up in my newsfeed over the weekend. I wanted to share it with you because it resonates with me, and what I believe is the truth of our existence. See what you think.

“One evening an elder Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us. One is Fear. It carries anxiety, concern, uncertainty, hesitancy, indecision and inaction. The other is Faith. It brings, calm, conviction, confidence, enthusiasm, decisiveness, excitement and action.” The grandson thought about if for a moment and then meekly asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”

Be aware of which wolf you choose to feed more over the next few days. Notice when you feed “Fear” and what motivates you? Likewise, when you feed “Faith,” what are you experiencing? Don’t judge yourself. Just be mindful of what’s going on.
