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.

Here's the story.....

my daughter has been struggling since she first started going to church. I as a mom, keep telling her to keep the faith, and keep prayer. Over the last few days she has sunken lower and lower with her car front end shot. Needs struts, springs, bearings just to name a few. Her boyfriend and father of her two littlest told her it was her problem that he has no money and can’t help her. He does not want her to get a job, besides the baby has sensory issues and cries for everyone, but mom. They are almost out of food, and she feels hopeless. She asked to barrow my husbands car, but he said No. She can use my car, which she hates to us as their are shards of glass that come out of the vent up by the windshield. To make a long story short, she gave in to us my car and took the baby. The two that live with me and the other three stayed home with me. She was ranting about nothing in her life being worth anything and praying wasn’t helping, and I finally told her enough. That she better start appreciating what she has. Ya what is that. You have a roof over your head, you and your six beautiful kids are healthy, you have food to eat, even if it is not much and not what you want. She left. After she pulled out of the driveway I sat the five kids down on the floor in a circling and told them we are going to pray for your mom. I started and it went in order oldest to youngest. The second refused, but still sat and held hands and said amen, and the youngest said amen, amen, amen. She is going to be two August so I thought three amen’s was very fitting.
Hence when my daughter arrived home three hours later she had adjusted her attitude. She said she cried and prayed and then went on with what she had to do. Things are all still the same, but she has regained strength that the Lord will pull through.
