two wolves

An old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. The battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, lies and ego, the other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth and faith.
The wolf that wins the battle is the one we choose to feed.

There is a battle of two wolves reigning inside me at the moment. My one wolf is the one who wants to write a blog, write a book, sit at the computer and get something written every day. Draft and redraft and become a good writer, entertain other people and enjoy creating characters and scenarios that come alive on the page, in your head.
My other wolf is a procrastinator who likes surfing the internet, spends time on facebook, checks hotmail, reads forums. Likes sleeping.

What do your wolves battle about?
