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.

Love is...

...freedom, not getting sad when we have different beliefs.

(The quote on the image says: “It’s the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, but it’s the little differences that make them interesting” Todd Rathaus)

Love is...

...being happy to know that we will be in the same continent, sharing the same schedule for a while.

Love is...

... learning to appreciate our differences.

Love is...

... to hold your hand in the difficult moments.

Keep on loving

Message for my friend A: If your heart was broken, don’t be afraid. There are many reasons to keep on loving. Believe in love no matter what.

2 years

Thanks for your love and your company, for teaching me that love is more powerful than distance.

Happy Mother's Day

I know it’s almost over, but I wanted to send you good wishes,light and a lot of patience and love.

Love is...

Loving someone implies the desire of changing the world. You want to transform it into a place where you can cuddle, where you can be yourself, show your feelings, a place where life makes you smile. A place where there is time and space for dreaming, tickling, for endless conversations and caresses… a place where you can think of crazy plans and ideas and fight together for making them come true.

On Marriage by Khalil Gibran

“You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”

24 days

I said good bye to my love yesterday.In this moment he is flying from Houston to Tokyo where he is going to stay for 3 years while he finishes his doctorate studies. I can only thank God for giving me the opportunity to have shared 24 days with him,those have been the happiest days of my life. I’m going to do everything that is on my hands to be with him again.
“Contigo en la distancia ,amado mío, estoy…”
