I saw this quote somewhere on facebook and its profound simpleness stood out to me. A friend once said, “There is the good dog and the bad dog: which one are you gonna feed today?”. It’s true.
We all have a choice to nurture the “good” or more positive part of ourselves (and others) – every moment of the day – or fall into a destructive pattern. Sadly, I learned over the holiday weekend the natural tendency can be to “feed the bad wolf”. Is it the path of least resistance? Possibly.
If we don’t make choices -from moment to moment- that nurture ourselves and others, we run the risk of living a careless and reckless life. I take this seriously, but graciousness must serve as a cushion upon an unanticipated fall.
