It's Not Me, It's You

Today, I did something terrifying.

Do one thing a day that scares you, or something like that, right?

I started my first eBay account back when the internet was still a novelty to me. As a teenager, the thought of selling things online for cash was hard to wrap my head around. My account name - wrecklesszambonidriver - provided me with a strange sense of pride and accomplishment. Even though I was only selling Pokemon cards and comic books for a few dollars, there was a thrill every time a bid drove the price up.

I’ve come a long way from walking Pokemon cards down the street to a friend (just because we lived 2 houses apart). eBay has helped us pay rent when we were both working unreliable retail jobs. It’s helped us put down payments on cars and pay down bills and loans.

And today I walked away.

I walked away not because I no longer need the money. I walked away because there are far better opportunities out there.

It’s terrifying. There’s also a tremendous sense of relief.

Only time will tell how this will all pan out. But for now, I’m using this opportunity to focus my full attention elsewhere.
