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.

Sunday Tears -

Today my Dad upset me.
I ended up crying rather hard about it.
I was a bit of a mess…

I’ve pulled myself together now.
But I still feel sad.


Tears -

I cried at church today…


Just For Me -

Wearing many bright colors!
I love the look of wearing bright colors!
I did this the other day, I didn’t care what anyone else thought.
I just wore what I wanted to wear!


Painted Toes -

I debated where to put this entry.
Feel beautiful
Love myself more
My grateful goal

I painted my toes the color Slip again!
The glitter in this polish is really pretty!
Now I can wear sandals again!


I Deserve Love -

Not sure where I want to write about this.
It’s about loving myself more & it’s about change.

So my new therapist is different.
Which I haven’t figured out if that is good or bad yet.

I haven’t scheduled my next appointment yet either…

I think that this therapist is more about tough-love, if you can call it that.
I’m not sure that I will feel cared about with this therapist.
Which I think that I would like to feel cared about.
But I also felt that I didn’t make much progress before.

So different is maybe a good thing.
I don’t know some things for me to think about.


Update -

After my 1st visit with my therapist.
I was kind of a mess.
The therapist seemed ok from what I could tell.

It’s just hard to un-load all your issues.
And then go home & feel all alone.
And not know what to do with yourself…
I wish I had all the answers.

But this is just the beginning!

I Love Hydrangeas! -

and me?
Well, I’m trying!

I went in search of hydrangeas yesterday.
They were supposed to be on sale.
I didn’t find any.

I did see the pretty orchids taunting me.

I’m going to have to pay full price & buy myself hydrangeas!
I should love myself enough to do that!


Being Myself -

Having a serious conversation with my Dad!
It didn’t go as well as I had hoped.
But happy that I was able to be honest with him about some things!

Taking Care Of Me -

And it’s about time.
I have an appointment next week with my new therapist!
Whee! :)
I never thought that I would be happy to go back to counseling.
But I am glad that I can stop looking for a new counselor.
Fingers crossed that we hit it off!

I am going to focus on loving myself more!


And More Reaching Out -

I guess I haven’t given up.
I never really stopped trying I just felt discouraged.
I’m starting over on the reaching out to my family!
Things may never change but I will know that I tried! :)

Sent an Easter text to 1 sibling!
Sent Easter e-mails to both siblings!
Sent cards & pictures out to my siblings!
Called 1 sibling in the last week!
And sent another e-mail to 1 sibling!
