Turquoise Necklace

I came across this Cherokee proverb and loved the message:

There Is A Battle Of Two Wolves Inside Us All

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life...

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

"One is evil- he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, lies, and ego.

"The other is good- he is joy, peace, love, hope, truth, humility, kindness, compassion and faith.

"This same fight is going on inside you- and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, 
"Which wolf will win?"

The old chief simply replied, 
"The one you feed."

I combined this with my love for turquoise and decided on a necklace. All beads from Joann Fabrics, wolf pendant from Etsy. All strung on white elastic thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
