Inspiration Friday: The Eagle and the Wolf

As many of us get ready to head into the Memorial Day weekend, I thought I’d share a simple store, with a big message.  Have a safe and happy holiday!

There is a great battle that rages inside me. 

One side is the soaring eagle. Everything the eagle stands for is good and true and beautiful, and it soars above the clouds. Even though it dips down into the valleys, it lays its eggs on the mountaintops. 

The other side of me is the howling wolf. And that raging, howling wolf represents the worst that’s in me. He eats upon my downfalls and justifies himself by his presence in the pack. 

Who wins this great battle? 

The one I feed.

    1. Great point Gerri! Debbie Ford did some really powerful work around what she termed ‘the shadow’ – those parts of ourselves that we may not like or try to hide – our ‘wolves’. She would tell you that you need both too!
