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.

I like Me =)

Just as I am =) Well, I like improving Me too )))))))) But all in all I ‘m happy just because I was born =)



Accepting yourself

I’m almost 27…and I still can’t accept myself. I think it’s time to grow up. I take my time, I need time…The thing is noone can’t do it but me. Finally.

I used to wear a mask. I mean – I always hide. I’m afraid to express myself. Even here – I don’t write the whole truth. I write about a girl who is “kinda” me. I used to PLAY..and not BE.

I must realise my responsibility in front of myself. I must accept myself as I am. I write a lot about it. I think sometimes that I did it..but time passes and I hate myself again for not being Miss Perfec-Someone-Else.

I have my drawbacks. Plenty. But I have good qualities too. I like learning. I’m inquisitive. I like acting. And I should stop thinking of my drawbacks. It’s normal. Not being perfect.
I should see Beauty inside Me and AROUND me. And I should smile the world.



Depression

I am depressed
I must admit it
Well, in fact it’s easy to admit
And then what
I have no idea how to fight it
And I don’t want to ask for help neither



Breathe Me by Sia

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there’s no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me



being pessimistic

I feel like I will never be happy with myself.



stop comparing myself with others

i m just a human…i have my + and -
I must stop thinking of others and humble myself…



simple things

I have never thought that the secret of happiness might lie in very SIMPLE things that we somehow forget to value when growing up …looking for something that probably doesn’t exist. Need to learn this from children.. I need to find “child-me” =)



i am happy

happy happy happyyyyyyyyyyy



That's just natural...

Just love yourself as you are :) I promise to love myself even when I am bad, ugly, old, tired, sick, angry, depressed…I will love myself despite everything and this love will support me and give me strength to keep going …
