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.

Ask Forgiveness and Forgive
With Prayers- I am sorry Mother.

I start and ask forgiveness first and foremost from my mother.
Mother , plz forgive me for being an ungrateful kid.Plz forgive me as i did not heed to all those scarifices that u did and continue to do for me, i know u still see me as a kid and i always judge you, plz forgive me for all the times i have hurt your heart, everytime i didnt’ listen to u, each time i did opposite of what i was told, every time i wasted food, each and every penny i splurged and as a kid even stole from your purse which might be a petty amount still it was theft, i ask forgiveness for the time not spent with you when i was a rebellious teenager, i ask forgiveness for every bad word i mouthed even if i never meant it, i ask forgiveness for not listening to you and regretting later, i ask forgiveness that i couldnt’ understand your experience, i ask forgiveness for not helping around and now when i am grown up u still help me.
Mother however good and responsible i become and how a good human being i might become but i will always be your sinner as i hurt you a lot as i grew up and now i still am troublesome in my own mature way.

I promise to try and become a better kid to you whom you might look upto and be happy and proud in my company, i promise to try and not judge every word you say and be patient with you as you were and are with me after all these years.

I love you and wish that my life years to be added in yours so i can be a little worthy of you.
