    Two Wolves

    One evening an old Cherokee Indian 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."

    So a new thought for the day :)

    Happiness, we do not find it, we make it.
    Happiness does not depend on what we lack, but how we use what we have.

    So another thought for today :)

    "There comes a time in life where you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy"

    Found this randomly on the interwebs, and it struck a chord somehow so thought some of you might enjoy it.

    Found this randomly via stumble on the interwebs. I found it really inspirational, it reminds me of everyones story on here. Hope you enjoy :)

    If you want a thing bad enough
    To go out and fight for it,
    Work day and night for it,
    Give up your time and your peace and
    your sleep for it

    If only desire of it
    Makes you quite mad enough
    Never to tire of it,
    Makes you hold all other things tawdry
    and cheap for it

    If life seems all empty and useless without it
    And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,

    If gladly you'll sweat for it,
    Fret for it, Plan for it,
    Lose all your terror of God or man for it,

    If you'll simply go after that thing that you want.
    With all your capacity,
    Strength and sagacity,
    Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,

    If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
    Nor sickness nor pain
    Of body or brain
    Can turn you away from the thing that you want,

    If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
    You'll get it!... That is called the WILL to WIN…!!!

    And another :)





    Mistakes are lessons of wisdom.
    When you make a mistake, don't look back at it for long.
    Take the lesson and move forward.
    Although the past cannot be changed;
    How to shape the future is still in your hands.

    stories Friendship poems FRIENDSHIP QUOTES & THOUGHTS Allow Your Own Inner Light to Guide You

    There comes a time when you must stand alone.

    You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.

    You must be willing to make sacrifices.

    You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.

    Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.

    There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.

    Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.

    Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by.

    Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life.

    Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way

    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key.
