All of us are on a journey towards an end goal. Look at your life as an elevator - you only have two choices you either go up or you go down. Think about that for a moment. The way you respond in any given moment to a situation is either taking your life up or it's taking you down. The people you surround yourself with are either lifting you up or they are bringing your energy down. The actions you take in every single moment can either elevate you to whole new levels or they will contribute to your descent.
Unless you exist in a Harry Potter film your elevator is not going from side to side. You can choose today to set an intention for where you want to be and at what level you wish to exist at or you can
let others choose your level - all the time looking down wishing and hoping for change. Wishing others would show up differently. Needing validation from those closest to you. You are the conductor - you have the power and the ability to look up and decide what you want most. You have the choice to step up and declare to your self this is where I want to be.
Next stop. Your life.
