This is a questioning I check in with regularly. Every moment we are making an endless number of choices and decisions in response to the things showing up in our world. It's amazing how much we are confronted with both "out there" and within ourselves. What I know now beyond question is that life does not ask you to compromise what you are committed to in this world. It does not ask you to compromise who you are committed to being in your life. It merely gives you opportunities again and again to be clear on who you are and to define what you stand for, and act accordingly.
It's never really about the offers that show up - as amazing or as convoluted as they may be. It's really about what you are committed to in that moment. Who you are committed to being is all that's being brought to your attention in every single moment. Who are you committed to being in this moment? What are you willing to be in integrity with here? You are given opportunities to choose, to decide, to act in ways that are congruent with your highest ideals.
Things show up to bring the clarity of your own character into focus. How you choose in those moments shape the scenes that will come to meet you! And it's always and only you who does the choosing.
