REPRINT FROM LEAVING WALMART
Intention To Leave
Oh the irony! While I am out running errands this morning, I make the decision to step away from corporate programming (and specifically Walmart) that has overrun my life and begin a new blog to record the journey. I come home in time to complete a few chores around the house and make a quick lunch/dinner before I have to leave for my retail (yes, corporate) job. I decide to make a frozen pizza. It just happens to be the "Sam's Choice" brand! Yes, my friends. I have made the decision to avoid Walmart at all costs, and come home only to eat a pizza that is part of their brand! It just goes to show you how overwhelming and complete the programming goes!
Even though I have always been considered a squeaky clean "goody-two-shoes" by those who know me, I have always been a rebel at heart. I am very sensitive to the limitations placed on me by others, and I desire nothing more than the freedom to follow my bliss. Hopefully in the process I will be joined by my fellow crusaders in freedom!Saturday, June 15, 2013
I don't think it will be easy! In fact, I can see myself getting desperate enough at times I could find myself right back in the place I don't want to be (in Walmart's checkout). Still, I am holding the intention to find alternatives that will throw my support toward my local community in ways that will take power away from the corporations and put it back where it belongs--into the hands of common folks.
