A lot of people will be speaking about making resolutions for the New Year and my guess is that it is not a bad idea. You may even know some of these people yourselves. Resolutions often begin by asking, "What are we doing now that we want to stop?" Obviously this is a good place to start. Some New Year’s resolutions address is the giving up of bad habits. Other resolutions ask, "What is it that we want to start doing that we are not doing now?"
The following story offers a good illustration of the intent of resolutions:
A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt. He said, “I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving and compassionate one.” The grandson asked him, “Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?” The grandfather answered, “The one I feed.”
Let’s start feeding the best in us!
