Always thinking...

"The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same." Carlos Castenada

  1. Ca88andra - In relation to your comment "Always Thinking" a note observed on my desk today that I thought you might like to read. Cheers Karen
    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 if the loving, compassionate one".
    The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?"
    The grandfather answered: "The one I feed."

  3. Wow, that is a very true quote!!! Although these days, with the economy the way it is and my hubby having been laid off in August 2008, and no jobs available, I have to say that a lot of external factors have gone into making us miserable! :)

    I love the Native American story too.
