Good Question, i think a little of both sometimes but mostly doing what i believe in.
I do what i believe in, i'd be miserable if i had to settle for what i'm doing i can acheive so much more than just settling.
What i believe in, i never settle
60 % belief and 40% adjustment~ in my case
No beliefs, no settling. I'm doing what I Know is virtuous.
Mostly the latter :-(
Doing what I believe in, day after day, night after night, even though it is killing me a little bit at a time!
That fact that I continue to do it, without changing must mean that I am settling for an unacceptable best!
All of my stress and sacrifices is due to doing what I believe in and not taking the easy way out. I might lose some sleep now but I'll never regret doing what's right.
I'm doing what i have to do to survive, whether it's either or.
