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.

secondchance12307 The Lord is good to me

Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful. (read all 259 entries…)
04/26/2011 Tuesday

1) God – I really don’t know what to call Him, for “god” just sounds too distant. He is our Father, Creator, Refuge… I’m thankful for Him today… I remembered how illogical it is for the earth to just have gotten so lucky for everything to happen and this planet sustains life. God is good, God is real…

2) K-love – love the radio station!!! So good, so positive.

3) developing relationship – with my Lord! Sometimes I feel as if I’m missing out in life, not walking in my flesh and completely abandoning my beliefs and truths. Then as I listened to K-love I realized and remembered how AWESOME it is to live for the Lord!!!

4) my sister – the more and more that I dwell on how much of a servant my sister is, the more amazed and inspired I get! She pursues God – absolutely pursues Him! That’s so beautiful! And my nephew and niece are also followers!!! I’m so glad we know the Lord and I’m thankful for His amazing grace and blessings upon our family!!! I ABDOLUTELY LOVE YOU LORD!!!!

5) great messages – our past makes us stronger, and a lot of times we have to go through the valleys in order to appreciate the mountain top. We are more than our past mistakes, we’ve been remade. I love what God has allowed my sister and myself to go through. I love my sister’s strength, faith, wisdom, character. I love where my heart is at. I may not be perfect, but I do try my best to treat everyone respectfully, the way I’d want to be treated, and I try to love people as best I can. I know I have a ways to improve in this category, but I love where I am – it’s not bad and a lot better than where I was before. :D
