Favourite Thing On A Friday - A Story


Hello.  I can't believe how quickly these Fridays whip round again, can you?  I love it that each week I get to choose what's been my favourite thing.  

This week my Favourite Thing On A Friday has to be the story that Kim from the blog Ramblings of the Bearded One  wrote in my comments section yesterday, in response to my post about loving your body.

I felt quite moved as I read Kim's comment, and wanted to share with you the story Kim shared with me.

Here it is...

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." 
Thank you Kim for taking the time to share this with me.   If you haven't already come across Kim's blog, I highly recommend you taking a visit.  Thank you everyone for all your beautiful comments on yesterday's post. You have completely blown me away...

Happy Friday.
Sending glitter and smiles,

Your blog is so bright and beautiful, I don't mind whatever you decide! Hope you are really well, Nadya
