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, serenity, 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.”
He simplified it for her and gave her examples of how to feed the good wolf, and what behaviors feed the bad wolf.
Since then, she's been very mindful of not feeding the bad wolf. I'm sure it won't last forever, but it's been working for us lately!

I was just putting my makeup on in the bathroom with the door shut. It was so peaceful and relaxing.
I could've been getting ready for a date, or on my way to an important board meeting. Or maybe on vacation in a tropical place, maybe with the floor but out to where I could see the fish and the water under my hut...
BUT THEN -- the door bursts open, and all of a sudden there's a tornado of tutus and leggings and ponytails and a dog and a jump rope and the sounds of "momma, Daisy's wearing a Sofia skirt!" from one, and "eats?" followed by a bite on my leg from the other. I screamed, stepped on the dog who took that as a personal offense and yipped at me, Glamour screamed because there's a ruckus, Glitz wanted me to wipe her butt, and all I can think is . . .
Who ARE these kids?
Where did they COME from??
They're cute, but their real mom is probably missing them by now.
If you see their real mom, give her my number and tell her they'll be waiting outside on the sidewalk.
Please and thank you.
