I’ve quit my job. Actually, I’ve quit my current life. My wife Erin and I are going through a divorce. We love each other very much but we simply weren’t getting what we wanted. We’ve decided to let each other go out of mutual compassion and love; we just want each other to be happy.
About Instacart, it was the first corporate job I ever had and in many ways the best job I’ve ever had. I loved getting to walk into the office every morning and be surrounded by so many people who respected me and wanted me to be there, who made me smile and whom I felt so much warmth from. I’m so thankful that I got to grow there, both as an engineer and as a human being.
I’m going to spend the next year or so setting up passive income streams and traveling. Or at least that’s the plan. Honestly, I’m terrified. It feels like I’ve smashed apart my old life to make room for a new one, but that new one has yet to take shape. I have no idea what’s ahead of me–I like it, and also it scares me.
I’m also going to be blogging here for real, starting Monday. Part of quitting has been a desire to live my life as authentically as possible, and if you know me at all, you know that sharing and talking about my experiences is an irrepressible part of who I am.
Cheers, to a bold new future. I hope to see you there :-).
