Nurture nature

“True happiness is … to enjoy the present without anxious dependence upon the future.”¬†Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Exhale…once more…again, and a little s l o w e r this time.

All I can say is BE and DO what ever helps you relax and feel calm right now.

Browsing through a favorite book, I came across a Cherokee proverb titled Two Wolves.

You may know the story well – just feels important to re-read again.

An old Cherokee told his grandson:

My son, there is a battle
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,
generosity, empathy and truth.

The grandson thought about
this for a minute and then
asked the grandfather.

Which wolf wins?

The old Cherokee simply replied…the one you feed.


May we all be safe, happy & strong…take good care & be well!

With love,
