Day 382 - Which Wolf?
Wednesday, December 16, 2015
A friend posted this on Facebook today, and it has inspired my blog post for today.
There are (at least) two sides to each of us. One side is virtuous and good, the other gossips and undermines others. We can control which one comes out most of the time, but who hasn't experienced a moment when the bad side pops out and says something that you never would have expressed if you hadn't had a moment of weakness.
The new Star Wars movie is out right now, and it too is about the battle between good and evil (also known as the "Dark Side"). For some of us, the battle between good and evil is waged every day. For others, it is clear which side is winning.
I know that there are times where I am most definitely not Good. I may not characterize myself as Evil, but I do sometimes have unkind thoughts (and have even said unkind things to others). I'm not proud of those times, but I forgive myself for being human.
What I am sure of is that I try to nurture my good side through gratitude, healthy living, and a whole lot of love. That is the side I want to show all the time. I'm not always successful, but I know what side is winning.
Which wolf do you feed? I think I already know the answer.
