Feed Yer Hope Wolf

An elderly Cherokee woman was teaching her children and grandchildren about life. She said to them, "There is a great fight going on inside of me. It's a fight between two wolves.

The first wolf is fear and greed and anger and deceit and self-doubt and competition and all the ugly things in the world.

The second wolf is hope and love and trust and sharing and faith and cooperation and self-appreciation and all the beautiful things in the world."

They sat there for a moment and then one of the children looked up and asked, "Grandma, which wolf will win?" The Grandmother simply replied, "The one you feed."

This was lifted word for word from this TED video.

I had a wicked day at work and came home with all my anger and despair guns a blazin. My bf said I should watch this video and that the end would probably help me. He was so right. The wolf story saved me from weeks, months and god forbid years of spiraling into a black hole of negativity.
