Lovely Words About Finding Compassion & Contentment

 

Yesterday I had two proposals to write for two different projects (which is potentially very exciting!). But I was unable to write for you, unfortunately. So I wanted to share a quote I encountered recently. I thought you might enjoy thinking about it as you go about your day.

 

A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson. He said, “I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry, discontented one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate, happy and contented one.” The grandson asked him, “Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?” The grandfather answered: “The one I feed.”
