What kind of person do we want to be today?
What kind of mark do we want to leave on this day in history?
Do we want to be an Elevator? One who uplifts, raises others to a higher position...someone who upgrades and promotes others? Someone who points out the possibilities and the silver linings? Someone who gives praise? Someone who speaks life and hope and joy?
OR, Do we want to be and Escalator? Someone who throws fuel onto a spark and intensifies situations? Someone who stirs the pot? Someone who creates friction. Someone who incites emotions, ramps up energy or turns up the heat?
There will be many opportunities today to make this choice.
