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 don’t know who to trust anymore…I’m hearing so many different things that I don’t know who is telling the truth. The man I’m seeing I love with every fiber of my being…but everyone is against us…I don’t know what to do anymore…

What is love?

Love is sacrificing everything for the other. Giving everything and asking for nothing. Even if that means you have to give up your own happiness, in order for the other to be happy.

Fighting to keep it alive!

Some things have changed in the past few days. I might actually get the man that I love back. I know I love him, but I don’t know if I can trust him again. But I am going to fight like hell to get him back, because he means the world to me. I am not afraid of death, but I am afraid of a life without him. It doesn’t make sence. He hurt me really bad, and all I can think is that this is a mistake and that every one makes at least one huge mistake in their lives. I know I have made my fair share of mistakes. So I am willing to try and make things work. It will take time, but I hope that this works. Because in my life there isn’t mach to live for. I may be making a mistake by taking him back but it is my life and I am going to follow my heart, and it says to fight!

To Love Or Not To Love

It is said that it is better to have loved and lost then to have never have loved at all. I would have liked to have never of loved at all, because in the end you only get hurt. Love is like a flame, and in the end, you just get burned…


The greatest lesson you will ever learn: Is just to love, and be loved in return!

Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong!

Love makes you want to live for all that it is worth. Do not take love for granted!
