Most of you have seen or have our CrossFit Homer Glen shirt that has the white wolf on the back. Iron Brigade Apparel and Designs has put together a shirt for us that has the white wolf on it as well. The white wolf has a lot more meaning than just looking like it is our mascot. Here is the story behind the meaning of the white wolf.
An old Cherokee is 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, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The 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 Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Our lives can have a lot of things go wrong and have a lot of negative in it. We can also tend to get mad and angry when we have a bad workout or don’t get the time we think we should get on a workout. I used to feed the black wolf too much and it just kept making things worse and I got worse at everything in life not just crossfit. Once I heard this story it made me realize I need to feed the white wolf. So feed the white wolf, stay positive, work hard and over time you will realize you are actually better than ever and having way more fun.
They have awesome apparel and they are awesome people. They wanted to help in anyway they could with Jordyn so they came up with shirts that have special logos for Jordyn. They also have our new awesome white wolf shirt.
