My roommate emailed me this tale.
With the journey of weight loss surgery, there are so many emotions that we go through - before, during and after. Keep this in mind when you read the following:
An elder Cherokee Indigenous American was teaching her grandchildren about life. She said to them, "A fight is going on inside me...it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too."
They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked her Grandmother, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee woman simply replied... "The one you feed."
