One day an old Cherokee Indian was talking to his grandson. He said:
“Inside all of us we have two wolves. One is evil. The other is good. They are always fighting with each other”
His grandson said “which wolf wins the fight?”
“Whichever wolf you feed. If you have negative thoughts and feelings like being jealous, sad, unkind, rude, frustrated, giving up or thinking you’re better than other people, you’re feeding your bad wolf. You feed your good wolf by thinking positive happy thoughts. If you’re a good winner, have a good attitude, and you’re kind, loving, generous, friendly, responsible and polite, you’re feeding your good wolf.”
This is our retelling of an old American Indian Story
We all enjoyed this!
But what does it mean?
‘Be more dog’….ummm…..walk on all fours? scratch yourself with your hind leg? pant with your tongue out?
No, we decided, you don’t take it literally (exactly as the words say). There were some great comments about what ‘be more dog’ could actually mean…..
