Cherokee Wisdom

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 ‘cats' 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 cat wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Find the thing that brings you joy and happiness
so that you may find peace and happiness in life
and spread peace and happiness to others.

For me, it's my cats =^..^=
