I recently accepted a position with Walmart Labs and will be moving to Seattle in the summer. This was not an easy decision and I still wonder if it is the right choice. Looking at it logically, Seattle is a much better place to live for me and my family. There are a variety of new opportunities for each one of us and it is a better all-around city than the tiny place we live today. My doubts focus on how it will affect my kids in the long-term. They are not happy about the move and neither are their friends. Just last night one of the friends of my youngest son told me she hated me. It hurt.
This is one of those moments where I will always wonder what life will have been like had I chosen the other path.
