I have a confession to make. Somewhere along the line I became a corporate professional. I came to like my job and the related perks- stable hours, good pay, and better benefits. Financially I am more stable than I've ever been in my life. Mentally, too. I have mixed feelings about this. I hate that I am not only condoning the corporatization of society, but I am also perpetuating it. The thing I used to rail against, the system I abhorred has taken me in. My inner idealist wants to break away. My inner pragmatist wants to continue.

I'm looking for the middle ground. How do I live by my ideals while keeping a roof over my head? How do I keep my feet firmly rooted while letting my mind soar? Can I improve the world by working within the system? Or do I need to break away in order to effect positive change?

I don't know.
Mood:: 'pensive' pensive
