Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

not be scared to be loved (read all 4 entries…)
I;m not scared

should I cross this off, or wait?
I love my bf, and everyday there is something I like about him, and then there is something that he does or says stupid and gets to my button, but I still love him, and I want to spend every waking momnet with him, and the kids. just to cuddle and be held, this morning when he came home from work, (midnites) he grabbed me and hugged me, I was late for work like 5 minutes, but the whole day I will feel so loved. I dropped my daughter off, and my x husband said something that would normally piss me off, I just smiled and said I will talk to you later. Nobody was going to get me off my cloud.

He called me shortly after I got to work, and said he missed me and thought about me at work. and how thinking about helpes him make it through his day, and

then he goes on to say that he feels like he’s in a twilght zone, or something close, he said he realized this morning he is still in love with me. that was nice to hear, and I need that from time to time, he hit the spot, after I have been reading the book, 5 love languages, he has filled my love tank. his words, that’s what I needed to hear. how can I be scared of this?
