So, I decided to log into my personal eBay account after waiting for a confirmation that my order from Hong Kong shipped and I saw this email waiting for me.
It congratulates me on 12 years with eBay and at first said "woo hoo, that's awesome!" and then it dawned on me that I've been on eBay FOR 12 FREAKIN' YEARS!
I'm getting old.
My body isn't getting back in shape as fast as I used to. My bones make these hilarious sounds when I'm performing rather mundane, daily tasks. I need more sleep.
I'm eating yogurt. Yeah, You read that right. I love yogurt now. And water. I'm obsessed with this fancy water bottle and refilling it three times a day.
I have been in denial about the inevitable change in my life as the age of 34 seems to creep up faster and faster.
My businesses, including my photography, Web Design, SEO, and Marketing have become my life. I work full time at a furniture outlet as their marketing specialist and I gotta be honest. I love it.
One of the first things I was taught during this transformation from employee to employer, was to try something outside of my comfort zone. And I did it.
Turns out, I'm incredible at it!
I'm also pretty good at making sure my clients, no matter what service or product they are purchasing from me, are happy and get a great deal.
So, while this email may have reminded me that I'm not getting any younger, I can at least say that for 12 years I've maintained a 100% rating in a world where people are itching to sabotage your efforts.
