I always complain about winter and the cold the final few weeks/month of winter. It gets old, I enjoy being outside enjoying the day. Winter begins to wear on me and I feel like I am less productive. Thinking this way obviously gets me nowhere and I have begun to let those negative thoughts go. Now that spring is here (I hope), it is a lot easier to do this and I have finally been able to wear some shorts and work out comfortably.

I took a longer route to work today on my Pugoet and took the Trout Run Trail back home. Being on a bike gives me a lot of time to think about things and I realized today that if it were not for winter, would I appreciate this beautiful weather we have had the last few days. They always say, "you don't know what you have until it's gone." If I lived in a place where it is sunny and hot everyday would I get sick of that in the same way that I get sick of winter?

Enough of my ranting.

Get outside and enjoy the day, wherever you are.

Which wolf are you feeding?

A older story with a great message....thought I would share.

One evening an Old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said “My son, the battle is between ‘two wolves’ inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, self-doubt, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. "

"The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, patience, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, gratitude, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
