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.

doing the best

i know how. i am pretty sure that i am doing good :) haha. i still ask if there is anywhere i need improvement (honestly and i dont get defensive about it) but he keeps saying know. i do know that my patiences needs some work though. so i will try to keep that in check



MARRIED

so i am finally a wife. so i guess i can work on this some more. or better. or something. haha. :)
anyways. i am still trying, working and loving. so i think i am doing pretty good. its just good to remind myself once and a while that this is somehting i should be striving for.



so

i am still working on it. i think that it is a life time journey quite honestly. i am doing all that i know to support him. yet he is still stressed. i know that is inevitable, but i simply dont like it.

does anyone have suggestions on how to help make his stresses go away…. and they are ones that i cant do anything about. like having time to fix his car because he works too much… (i.e. i cant work for him. nor can i fix the car… because i am not that talented… augh)



give and take

i do my best to be very supporting of brandt and his feelings and opinions. and i think i do a wonderful job. we never discount what eachother is feeling. because that is just how we feel, weither it is right or wrong. but anyways… i am actually working on the taking part. i have always been someone who helped others. i never allowed myself to take help from others or go to others with my problems (even just to vent) because they never seemed important enough… like i was just causing drama. but i am realizing that if they are meaningful to me, then they are obviously important to me and that should count for something. period. i am working on being able to ask brandt for help or just to be able to talk to him when i am feeling down-n-out. i know that when i do it makes him feel really good because he feels like he is helping me and supporting me the way a husband should. so basically. the task at hand. allow him to be my knight in shining armor. :)



GETTING CLOSER

only 10 months until we are really married. haha. even though we already think of ourselves as such. i cant wait. bought my wedding dress today! and its awesome. i am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband! :) i am really working on it. and brandt says i am a wonderful wife and that i am growing as such. awesome! :)
blessings yall



i try to have serious disscussions

with brandt about how i can do better…

recently we were talking about how i have a male friends. and he liked the idea, because they could protect me while he is so far away. but i wonder… even though he feels that i am safer, does he feel jealous? im working on it…



how can i better myself?

i want your opinion on how i can be a good wife.

i constantly ask brandt if there is anything i can do to help him more, show him i love him in a better way, or support him in any other way, and he says no. but i still want to be the best i can. i love him dearly, and i want that to be shown in everything i do.

everything i do for him, or say to him is done out of love, and i make that my first thought… any other ideas?
